8 Harry Potter Ugly Christmas Sweaters For Your Inner Witch Or Wizard — PHOTOS

Is it just me, or are ugly Christmas sweaters getting to be a tad blasé? Although I'm pretty much as far as you can get from a "hipster," even I know that they're getting a little mainstream. Up your game this year with a Harry Potter ugly Christmas sweater — it'll be unexpected, classic, and an instant crowd pleaser.

Half of the joy in wearing an ugly Christmas sweater is in the hunt for hideous, which isn't too hard when you can find a full selection of ironically disgusting holiday sweaters at any department store nowadays. I once saw two girls at the same party wearing the same ugly tree sweater, which should never happen. Don't get me wrong, I am all about store-bought ugly Christmas sweaters, but I won't be purchasing one that I know will be too popular of a choice this year.

Harry Potter, on the other hand, is not boring, but rather a time-honored cultural phenomenon beloved by nearly everyone. You can't go wrong in a Harry Potter jumper at this season's ugly sweater party, and even if you're not attending a nasty knitwear shindig this year, there's no shame in buying one just for you (or your favorite wannabe witch or wizard.)

Here are seven Harry Potter ugly Christmas sweaters to sport this season.
