It's the most wonderful time of the year, so mix up your favorite hot drink, light a candle, and snuggle up in a fuzzy sweater next to a fire. The weather is getting cooler, families are putting up decorations, and everyone is becoming more and more festive — because the new Star Wars movie is finally about to be released! That's not what you were expecting me to say, was it? Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens will be out in a movie theatre near you next week, and if that isn't reason to celebrate, I don't know what is!
This holiday season brings together two of my most favorite things: Star Wars and ugly sweaters. That's right! The best holiday sweaters will not be found by scoring your local thrift store, but instead by surfing the web. What better way to show your enthusiasm for both the new movie and the holiday season than by sporting a Star Wars themed ugly sweater?
Star Wars sweaters work for all holiday occasions. Because the first trilogy likely came out when your parents were younger, everyone at the family gathering will be fawning over your new look. Wearing a Chewbacca sweater to a holiday party will be the perfect conversation starter. A droid-themed sweater would be the perfect thing to wear to the movie if you want to show your support. And once you've seen the movie, I'm sure you won't want to rock anything but these ten toppers until summertime.
