In 2018, when pumpkin spice season starts in August, big-box stores begin to mark down prices (and notify shoppers about them) on November 1, and Black Friday is now a week-long event, it's easy to forget what the holidays are really about: outdoing your friends. And, if you happen to be invited to an ugly sweater party this year, there's no better way to make that happen than by showing up in the loudest, most pom-pom-bedecked, aesthetically confusing piece of knitwear you can get your hands on. Preferably one that serves as an homage to your favorite holiday treat, so you can stand out in a sea of Santa/reindeer/elf sweaters and silently stake your claim at the snack table.
