    My daughter won last year with a Christmas-themedgrandma sweater from Salvation Army, tricked out with a set of battery-operated Christmas lights fromthe Dollar Tree and cheap ball ornaments sewn all over the place. Cost us less than $5 total.

    Cut out a picture of a sweater from a newspaper ad and pin it on the front of your shirt with thumb tacks (thumb part on the inside, points sticking out.)

    Yep. Just so you know, they were in a bin near the Christmas decorations, not the clothes.

    Whatever you end up finding, enjoy the new addition to your wardrobe.

    I'm dying to know the story behind your family's Fakesgiving observance.

    Brian, I wish I lived closer to you! My Mom tends to find the tackest sweaters to give me ever Christmas. I have about 10 in my closet (she comes over to feed the cats when I am gone). So I have to keep them.

    I can't believe I forgot to come back and post. I went to a local thrift store and found an entire rack of Christmas sweaters. There was an absolutely hideous vest and had to get it. I didn't want a sweater since it could very well be warm and muggy in Louisiana on the night of the party. A vest will also be different from everyone else. Will post a pic when I get a chance, maybe when I get back home later in the week.

    Watching the morning news today, supposedly this is a hot trend right now. Ugly Christmas Sweater parties. Thrift stores are seeing these sweaters fly off their shelves.

    That cat sweater is hilarious.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Temporary homes! I trust they are all going back to Goodwill/Savers/Thrift stores immediately after the event!

    I'm glad our family was in the ugly sweater trend way back before it was cool to do so (thanks to a grandmother who loved to knit/crochet, but was sadly ungifted in tiffin' ideas)

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    And now, I've been invited to one of these parties too, so these suggestions are very helpful!
