Hi TAY, I’ve been invited to an ugly sweater party, apparently. But I don’t have one yet. I’m thinking about making one but what is the point of an ugly sweater? Some of them are so cute, really. Didn’t I have this very problem a few years ago...?! When did this tradition of shaming sweaters become a thing?!

For today’s suggested topics:

  • Tell me how you’d design an ugly sweater, TAY.
  • Say this was a Video Game themed Ugly Sweater Christmas Party, who’s the scariest, most hideous video game character who should go on a sweater?
  • Sweater Shaming - Foul practice or All for it?
  • Speaking of the holidays and general gift giving: What’s the best video game related gift you’ve received?
