What is a Christmas sweater?

As the concept is fairly new, many people may be asking themselves what a Christmas sweater actually is?

A Christmas sweater is a regular sweater, preferably knitted and complete with Christmas motifs,
that is worn throughout the holiday season.

To be categorized as a truly ridiculous Christmas sweater, a traditional Christmas sweater should always have a touch of ugliness.

Today, the concept of the Christmas sweater has evolved drastically. Lights, speakers, and other tacky effects are currently all the rage.  

Throughout our online shop, you’ll see plenty of traditional Christmas sweaters based on local tradition, as well as more modern sweaters complete with LED lights and speakers.

How did the ugly Christmas sweater tradition start?

To answer this question, we have to go back to the 80s — a decade when crazy fashion trends were just as popular as neon colors and excessive amounts of hair spray.

In the middle of all this tackiness, Christmas sweaters began appearing.

All of a sudden, celebrities and TV personalities were rocking some of the ugliest Christmas sweaters known to man.

The sweaters they wore were often a mix of traditional home-knitted sweaters in various shades and colors. The more “over the top”, the better.

Still, it took several years before the trend really took off…

… and then came the 2000s

In the early 2000s, some totally awesome dudes in Canada bought some vintage Christmas sweaters and began wearing them for fun.

Naturally, they threw a radical Christmas party for friends and family. The only condition…? Everyone in attendance had to wear the ugliest Christmas sweater they could find.

Today, this historical Canadian moment has evolved into something much more totally awesome. Now, in Vancouver (where it all started), more than 1,000 participants from all over the globe flock to the Commodore Ballroom to attend the most radical ugly Christmas sweater party the world has ever seen…

It wasn’t long before big retailers, including Hennes & Mauritz (HM), Cubus, Zara, and Zalando began selling ugly Christmas sweaters. Today, millions of people from all over the world cannot get enough of these hideous, ridiculous, tacky, and down-right amazing Christmas sweaters.

Hosting a “Christmas Sweater Day” party at the office or with friends is a crazy-popular trend nowadays.
