15 Literary Ugly Christmas Sweaters You'll Want To Wear All Year Long

Etsy; Amazon

The holiday season is officially beginning, do you know where your ugly sweaters are? If you're in need of something fun and festive to add to your wardrobe this winter, look no further than ugly Christmas sweaters for book-lovers.

Like candy canes and mistletoe, gingerbread and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” the ugly sweater is an important part of the holiday tradition for many people in the United States. Everywhere you look throughout the month of December, you will find carolers, coworkers, and party-goers unironically wearing hideous knitwear adorned sequins, bells, googly eyes, and in the most extreme cases, lights.

Ugly holiday sweaters are a time honored tradition, but it’s one that has truly taken off in the past few years. No longer do people need to search their closets for that birthday gift grandma gave them or thrift stores for sweatshirts of Christmas past, because there is a themed holiday sweater out there for everyone. Obsessed with pop culture? Try a Stranger Things sweatshirt or some Wonder Woman knitwear. Like to drink wine? Get yourself the sweater that can hide an entire bottle. No matter what you like to do, watch, or even read, there is a sweater out there for you, and it’s ugly.

Whether you're a die-hard Harry Potter fan or a complete Scrooge, you're going to love these 15 ugly sweaters that are perfect for readers this season.
