Where can I start with Christmas Sweaters? They are gaudy, tacky and garish. Even the most fit people look like frumpy blobs of red and green. They are obnoxiously bright, and usually with some large holiday-theme image on the front. Maybe even throw in a little metallic thread and some battery operated lights. But then there is something fantastic about them at the same time. The unabashed Christmas spirit. They overdo in such an innocent and festive way (like Clark Griswald’s lights in Christmas Vacation) it may be too much, but you still want to smile when you see it.
In the Christmas sweater tradition, my mother picked up this little number for Whiskey the other day for $7. He of course got super excited, because he loves sweaters….they mean warmth and walks.
And also in true holiday fashion, he had too much excitement and had to take a nap. Or maybe he is just closing his eyes so that he doesn’t have to see the sweater.
Do you have any beloved Christmas sweaters hiding in your closet?
