The ugly Halloween sweater: Be afraid, be very afraid
It's hideous. It's scary. It will swallow you whole and take on a form of its own. And did I mention pom-poms? Everywhere?!
BEHOLD: THE UGLY HALLOWEEN SWEATER! MUWAHAHAHA!
Usually, ugly Christmas sweaters have all the fun. Worn sarcastically or just because your great aunt Myrtle made it and you have no choice, these itchy, embarrassing, ill-fitting sweaters have become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon. But I say, why wait until December?
I was bewitched by this monstrosity of a sweater the moment I saw it. And for $2.50 at Sunshine Thrift in St. Petersburg, I was positively powerless to resist. As if possessed, I swooped up the sweater, carried it to the clerk (who asked, "are you sure?") and proudly purchased it.
Witches and warlocks, damsels and demons, it is with this sweater I declare All Hallows Eve the new Christmas!
It will totally work. Just ask Jack.
