Ugly Sweater Parties

or a drawer, now’s your chance to give it new life. Arm yourself with a hot glue gun, thread, and needle, and patch Santa, Rudolph, or Frosty on it. And let it be known that an ugly sweater isn’t complete without sparkles, beads, and sequins galore. What Exactly Is an Ugly Sweater Party? It’s rather simple — slip on your favorite Christmas sweater, gather all your friends and family members, make sure there are plenty of refreshments and games, and you’re guaranteed to have a top-tier party. A few ugly-sweater-themed games that should be on the agenda include an ugly gift exchange, which is similar to the white elephant exchange, except with the gaudiest gifts you can find; an ugly photo booth, complete with terrible, tacky props; and, of course, an ugly sweater contest.

A Fun Trend You Can Easily Follow!

It’s speculated that the first ugly sweater party took place in Vancouver, Canada, back in 2001. Since then, the trend has become one of the most popular holiday party themes. Come Thanksgiving, you’ll start to see racks in all types of clothing stores lined with hideous sweaters. If you’re ready to jump on the ugly-sweater-party bandwagon this Christmas season, here are a few things to keep in mind. Your Very Own Ugly Sweater Ugly sweaters come in all shapes, sizes, and prices. You can head to H&M or a local thrift store to pick one up. However, if you have a sweater that’s been cozied up for years in the back of your closet TESTIMONIALS See What Others Are Saying I live in Denver, CO, and was on vacation in San Diego when I experienced a terrible toothache. I was stubborn and thought I could survive the next three days without a dental visit. I was wrong but didn’t realize this until Saturday morning, when I decided I had to see a dentist. After looking through the limited dentists open on Saturday, A+ Family Dentistry had good Yelp reviews, and upon calling them, they got me in ASAP, where I met Dr. Tran. He was very kind, and between him and his awesome assistant, he quickly discovered I had a cracked tooth. He was able to use a sophisticated camera to take a photo of it and show me. Hence, I needed a root canal, which would need more time. He explained to me in detail what needed to be done, and all costs were explained too. He arranged for me to have my procedure first thing Monday morning in his office, but prior to that, he did put a temporary cap on my tooth, which worked wonderfully to get me through the remainder of the weekend without pain. Upon my root canal on Monday morning, the procedure went smoothly and easily and wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. The essentially new tooth Dr. Tran made for me is the perfect fit, and I no longer have any pain or even sensitivity to it, which is often the case after a root canal. Dr. Tran was wonderful in his work, empathy, and customer service. –John M.
