The Very Modest Holiday Sweater Contest

After several weeks of begging, cajoling and extending the deadline, I got a total of THREE entries for the holiday sweater contest. With $50 on the line, I had hoped to bring a bigger crowd, but obviously no one likes me.

Without further ado, bring on the sweaters!

1. Sheri lights up the holiday with this impressive entry:


2. VDog brings the adorable little man with the nutcracker sweater:


3. And Amanda of KissMyAster shows team spirit with this duo entry


And as a non-voting entry, Mayberry Mom wanted to show off her Dad's traditional holiday pants, which are so spectacular that you may only glimpse part of them, lest you be blinded by Bright Holiday Spirit"


Thanks to all the entrants!

Please vote according to your conscience - is it good, bad, or just filled with holiday spirit? You decide who you want to win. One vote per person, please. Voting closes when I say it does.

I have to vote for number 3, anyone who can get their husband in that sweater AND get a picture of it. Well, she deserves more than $50.

I vote for #2. She's corrupting him early!

VDog said...

I think Little Man's sweater is TOTALLY the WORST. heh.

Can we vote for ourselves? heh

Thanks for hosting!

My vote's for number 3. His 'n hers winter wonderland uglies!

I wish I'd known about this contest earlier--my MIL has some really awful sweaters that she tortures the family with at Christmas time...do this again next year and I'm in!

First, stop it... everyone LOVES you! I would have entered, but of all the hideous holiday sweaters that I have in my memory, I couldn't find a picture of a single one!

Second, I vote for #3. Holiday sweaters are made much worse when they're made in stereo. At least they weren't matching...

Anonymous said...

Oh yes, #3. And the accompanying holiday facial expressions? Also good. And I think Christopher is right. Most folks have already destroyed any photographic evidence of their holiday finery. I wish you could feel the love we have for you. It's real, kiddo!

Oh, my. I think the Couples entry is the most impressive. As Adrienne says, just getting the guy to do it is the greatest accomplishment

lizgwiz said...

I like #1. I mean, I don't LIKE it, I think it's abhorrent. So it wins!

Al_Pal said...

What I really want to know: what the heck is on the Little Man's turtleneck?
Gotta vote #2

Funny about #3: "house on the rock" is in Wisconsin, I believe... I bet WI is prime territory for *ahem* cheesy sweaters! :P

Average Jane said...

I'm going to have to say #1.

Dave2 said...

NUMBER THREE!

Totally number three.

Issas Crazy World said...

The third one for sure.

I think people are afraid to put out there a picture of them in a fugly sweater. Like it will get them kicked of the island or something.

Belén Rodríguez said...

My vote goes to Number Three because that man is brave to wear that outfit.

J at www.jellyjules.com said...

I'm voting for the couple as well. The little boy is just TOO cute. And while the first sweater is bad, it's not as bad as the combo.

I'll admit that I saw a pretty bad sweater in the store the other day, and I almost took a picture of it to submit, but that seemed like cheating, since I wasn't about to BUY it. :)

Traceytreasure said...

I vote for the 1st one! That sweater with the lights is the best!!

Hugs!!

nec said...

I vote for numero uno. All lit up and nowhere to go...

js said...

HAS to be number 3. The husband/wife thing is SO humiliating. (The prize should go to the husband for the humiliation factor alone).

Keep it on record - it will never happen again!

Lisa said...

I vote for the husband and wife team. Twice the "holiday spirit." More is better, yes?

Count Mockula said...

#3 doubled my pleasure.

mar said...

i can't choose. they are all equally abhorrent.
(i also had no existing photos, but believe me, there have been many hideous sweaters)
