Overview

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!

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Guest of a Guest: Los Angeles
“…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…”

Los Angeles Times
“Looking to score an ugly Christmas sweater this year? Arguably the best (or worst, depending on your viewpoint) examples are on the website myuglychristmassweater.com, where fringed Santas and stuffed reindeer heads go to die.”

Coco Perez
“Appropriately titled My Ugly Christmas Sweaters, [the site] offers an array of sweaters that light up, sparkle and make you go ‘eww.’ ”

The Atlantic Wire
“…one need look no futher than the website myuglychristmassweater.com—whose inventory includes a vest decorated with a stuffed animal reindeer head and battery-powered light-up antlers…”

Boston Bibliophile blog
”… this book displays a wide array of the crazy, the tacky and the just-plain-wonderful when it comes to Christmas sweaters.”
