Ugly Christmas Sweater Party

It's time to find the ugliest, most tacky Christmas sweater... and wear it to a party! If you're in the mood for a festive and funny holiday party, host an Ugly Sweater Christmas Party -- simply invite all of your friends to wear the craziest sweater they can find. Guests are sure to get creative, so you'll want to have a prize for the best look (fruitcake makes a great award!) Serve fun treats like peppermint eggnog and gingerbread people wearing little sweaters made of icing. A jello mold or crackers and cheese-wiz will work, too! Here are a few ideas to get you started...
