Be careful...we don't want to discourage anyone from participating.

Where Can I find My Holiday Sweater???

Hint #1

Think Thrift Shop.
Whether going or throwing, you might want to pick up some special specimens, and you won't find a better source than Goodwill. And you can't beat the prices. Just plan on spending a little extra for dry cleaning.

Don't Tell GrandMa...

Think Ironic. You probably have fond memories of your older female relatives at holiday gatherings wearing sweaters with Christmas trees and Santa Claus. The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party pokes fun at these wardrobe choices, and no one wants to be mean to Grandma. So mentally separate the Grandma sweater from the Party sweater. Pretend she wouldn't be hurt by the concept. And for God's sake, don't tell her about it.

Did You Know?

A popular theme for parties these days is to make an ugly sweater mandatory for entry.

Our invitation reads, "The uglier the sweater, stronger the beverage, the better the party."

just sayin,

Did You Know?

From my extensive research, it appears that this "The Ugly Holiday Sweater Party W/ the California Streamers" is the earliest known sighting of this phenomenon, which is reaching epic proportions throughout the Airstream world...

Save The Pets and Small Children...

I have to say Mr. Str8,
those specimens are pretty nice.

Don't forget you get extra points for really obnoxious sparkles and huge puffy appliques with as many colors as possible.

I've never been to a rally since I am new to streams. I live in Santa Barbara so it would be great to do the first here in case things fall apart. I haven't actually camped yet, just finished the trailer restoration today.
