Unitasker Wednesday: Ugly Christmas Sweater

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

This Friday is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. There is nothing more unitaskery than an article of clothing that you wear only once a year – except, of course, an ugly article of clothing that you wear only once a year.

Costumes of all types tend to be unitaskers but I’m really not a Scrooge. I understand the fun and whimsy that is needed during the dreary winter month of December. I also appreciate that many Ugly Christmas Sweater events support charities.

If you’re planning on participating in Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, try shopping at used/consignment clothing stores before purchasing something new. You could also host an ugly sweater swap party where friends can exchange their sweaters so everyone has something new to wear the following year.

Happy Holidays!

    Got rid of an ugly sweater in ’81 and never had another one. 95% of my wardrobe is active wear, tops, joggers, athletic shoes, etc for sometime since retirement. I encourage people to donate these ugly sweaters to charity. Wear solid red or green for the holidays instead.

    This past Christmas I compromised by buying my coffee cup an “ugly” Christmas sweater instead:

    Keeps my drink hot, obviates the need for a cardboard sleeve (if I happen to buy a takeout coffee), and amuses the heck out of everybody that sees it.

    Because yes, I’m with you… my apartment storage space is too limited to devote a chunk of it to something I’d once a year at most.

    I agree that donating unwanted Christmas sweaters is an amazing idea. So many charities can move these sweaters fast and put the money to good use. Thanks for the post!

    I love the idea about having an ugly sweater swap party. Great way to unclutter!
