The holiday season is a little nutty around here. Excited regular, decaf, Fair Trade, organic, flavored, and seasonal blend-lovin’ people are buying coffee for the holiday crowd like there’s no tomorrow and we, of course, are as busy as an one-armed paper hanger.
So, as I said, nutty.
But today a true depiction of our holiday wackiness made itself apparent in a little something called Ugly Christmas Sweaters. Everyone has one and some wear them in public – even in our office.
May I present our top two favorites? To ease you into the ugliness, our silk-screened runner-up:

Then there’s The Ugly Christmas Sweater. Yes, “The” Ugly Christmas Sweater – a piece of red, green, and tinseled apparel so hideous that it deserves its own zip code, let alone a “The” in front of its name. It’s hard to describe this lovely woolen beauty, so let’s hear from Chris, the wearer of this repugnant sweater, as he describes his auction find:
The events committee of my graduate program decided to use a “tacky holiday sweater theme” for our annual winter gathering and give a prize to the person with the ugliest sweater…guess who won?

Happy Holidays from us! Hope you find beauty in the holidays – even when events are as homely as our sweater collection!
