Wearing festive clothing during the holidays has the ability make you feel happier and more alive. Even wearing something as simple as a holiday hat or scarf can put you in the holiday spirit, making you feel like a kid again.
As we get older the holidays begin to lose the magic that they once held. The stress over holiday get-togethers and gift giving can dampen even the mightiest holiday spirit. Holiday clothing allows you to release your inner child and remind yourself that the holidays are a fun and delightful time.
Today ugly sweater contests are one of the most popular holiday trends. Ugly sweater parties can be thrown at home or at work. They require very little planning as the sweaters themselves become the entertainment. The goal of these parties is simple; outdo your friends, co-workers and family by wearing the tackiest and most outrageous holiday sweater that you can find.
Although most people believe that holiday clothing is limited to Christmas, this isn’t the case anymore. Tacky sweater parties can be thrown for almost any holiday.
