Tiss the Season for the Christmas Sweaters!

“Oh, the silent majesty of a winter’s morn… The clean, cool chill of the holiday air… Uncle Eddie in his bathrobe, emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer.”

A few nights ago I attended a great Christmas party, and part of that party was for each person to bring a gift for a White Elephant gift exchange. For any of you who might not know what that is, basically everyone brings a fun or funny gift, all the gifts are put in a pile and each person can either choose a gift or steal a gift from another person. So it turns out the gifts that were the stars of the show were a variety of ugly Christmas sweaters and the good old Snuggie. Since I also know I would be spending another fun filled night at an Ugly Christmas Sweater party later this month, I thought I would share a fun site for any of you who might be wanted to throw your own party. Since this party theme seems to be gaining steam, there has been web site dedicated to just this, UglyChristmasSweaterParty.com. The site will lead you to places you can buy sweaters, party ideas, and of course inspirational pictures.

And last but not least I can't leave you without the family who embraces the Christmas sweater better then anyone else, who else but Clark W. Griswold and his family. And a lasting holiday thought from Clark, sorry about the language, but what can I say it is funny!

"Where do you think you're going? Nobodies leaving. Nobodies walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse." Clark W. Griswold
