Where Did the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" Idea Come From



Perhaps it would be better to ask ourselves, "Which came first, the sweater or the ugly?" According to Time Magazine there has been a revival among young people throwing ugly Christmas sweater parties, where they make fun of their parents who loved the festive looks and thought the sweaters were cute.

The city of Vancouver, Canada claims to be the birthplace of the first ugly sweater party in 2002. Every year at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver a party is held and the dress code is an ugly sweater affair. Chris Boyd and Jordan Birch, are the co-founders of the Commodore's annual ugly sweater party. The pair have even trademarked the word marks, "ugly Christmas sweater" and "ugly Christmas sweater party" in Canada.
