Ugly Christmas Sweaters – Queen of Ordinary – December 16, 2014

I didn’t take photos tonight at our church ladies’ annual Christmas party and ugly sweater contest.  Talk about craziness!  The prize for first place was $50.00.  These ladies weren’t after the money as much as an opportunity to express their creative craziness.  It was all in fun.  A lot of time and energy had been spent on “outdoing” each other.  The laughter was worth it, I’m sure.

I would love to see Ugly sweater photos if anyone wants to share.  🙂

When I pulled up the topic on Google, there were over 19 million sites!  What used to painful to have to wear because someone gave it to us as a gift is now a raging fad.  The uglier, the better.

Let’s see some photos!

I did not put a tree up this year for a number of reasons, but I truly love Christmas decorations.  Everyone has such great individual styles.  It is a holiday where creative expression is always cheerful and reflects the decorator’s personality.

From the traditional, antique, sports teams, and even modernistic, I love seeing how people deck their halls. Fa la la la la… la la la la!
