The ugly Christmas sweater exists in a strange sort of limbo – everyone “hates” them and calls them ugly, but everyone still ends up wearing and loving them during the holiday season anyway, spreading cheer and Christmas spirit.

So here are just a few of those beautiful, ugly Christmas sweaters that we love to hate (or hate to love?).
