While beauty is always in the eye of the beholder, I believe that “ugly” is actually in the mind of its maker as well: As in, what may seem ugly to you is actually really kick-butt-awesome to me. Just sayin’. That’s why when after coming across not one, or two, or three but 15 (and counting!) cute, conversational Christmas sweaters I decided to curate them into an equally as tongue-in-cheek collection on eBay called Ugly Holiday Sweaters That Are Kind of Cool (Kind Of).
