A Blog by Chicken Wrangler Sara
Our school is doing a dress-up theme every day this week. Thursday is ugly sweater day.
I have the perfect sweater. And it has a story. The story first appeared in my December 2014 blog.
Twenty-one (now thirty) years ago, my parents gave me a Christmas sweater. It was something they knew I would never buy for myself but would love.
They were right. I wore that sweater for many years starting with our daughter’s first Christmas. This very same daughter has borrowed the sweater not once but twice to enter her “tacky Christmas sweater” contests. This year she’s loaning it out.
I would be offended except for two years running, my sweater has won.
I think I deserve at least some kind of prize for having held on to that sweater long enough for college kids to think it is tacky.
I can’t wait to wear it on Thursday. I hope people are ready to hear the story. It is what makes the sweater the most interesting ugly sweater on earth!
