Trump Ugly Christmas Sweater
Last week, Kelly Osbourne made an appearance on FOX & Friends to present Donald Trump with, in my opinion, a mildly ugly Christmas sweater (where's the puff paint?). I guess even the rich and famous can't avoid the quirky holiday sweater plague.

Many of us have been, -ahem- fortunate enough to own one of these gems. Be it knit like Trump's or bedazzled in all forms of rhinestones and beads, these festive vestiges of holiday cheer are more than a sad gift from Grandma these days. Over the past few years, ugly Christmas sweaters have been working their way into, believe it or not, a trend.

Annual ugly Christmas sweater contests have become a tradition for many family gift swaps and the knit wonders have even sprung up at special holiday events (like this one in Detroit). Jimmy Fallon has also jumpstarted the tacky sweater craze with a regular feature on his show. That just leaves you.

If there were any time to show off your ugly Christmas sweater, it's now! Embrace your inner Grandma! Upload a Photo and let us know... was it a gift? Did you make it? Where are you going in it this year?
