Description

Based off the popular website of the same name, Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater celebrates ugly Christmas sweaters year-round and showcases hilarious photos of people and pets wearing some of the ugliest holiday sweaters ever.
More colorful than visions of sugarplums and jollier than a sleigh full of inebriated elves, ugly Christmas sweaters are a global holiday tradition celebrated by all ages and walks of life. With more than 200 photos, humorous captions, and chapters like Vintage Sweater Fun, Classic Sweaters from the '80s and '90s, Winter Wonderland, and Best of the Best, this book is here to help you spread the holiday cheer and maybe get some new ideas for this year's ugly Christmas sweater party -- horrid fringe, creepy elves, gaudy snowmen, and light-up reindeer are just the beginning

Praise For Rock Your Ugly Christmas Sweater

one of the sponsors of his party sells some pretty jaw-droppingly hideous Hanukkah sweaters, hats and even dresses. With weird colors, ungainly attached items, bells, and even blinking lights, these sweaters cover all the bases of what an ugly holiday sweater could hope for”
