Skelly's ornament for today - Ratty Christmas Sweater
Alright, here's the deal. I got up this morning with full intention of putting together a post bemoaning the creepy tradition of the dreaded Christmas sweater. The kind of knitted nightmare your aunt wears for Christmas dinner that smells of perfume and cigarette smoke and is decorated with all the junk from the bottom of the decoration box.
But to my HORROR I have discovered that the Christmas sweater is....BACK!!
There are songs, books, videos and entire websites devoted to this hideous holiday fashion.
There is even an ODE TO UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER.
That's not all, there are video's teaching you how to wear them...what! Tutorials on how to throw an ugly Christmas sweater office party...dear god...isn't it bad enough that we have to fork over for a secret Santa gift every year, now we have to wear a ridiculous Christmas sweater as well.
You can get them for your dog
Or your sweater can BE A DOG
Why not get one made up for your guinea pig
Or how about wrapping your overheated kitty in a nice warm sweater and see what happens.
Leave it to my fellow Canadian compatriots to come up with a crazy website
devoted entirely to the Christmas Sweater.
