Do: Break Out Your Finest Christmas Sweater

No time like the present to dust off your one garment of clothing that has bells attached to it, after all.

Don't: Try to Play it off as "Ironic"

My mom and all her mom friends have been joking for years about ugly holiday sweater season, and everyone happily participates. It's just a fun tradition that everyone enjoys, so there's no real way to embrace irony here unless you show up in a loincloth fashioned out of a stocking or something. In which case you're not hip so much as an idiot and possible sex offender. Also, it's Christmas, so just relax. Stick with the sweater. It will be fun, and hide that holiday party gut that's been growing all month. What more could you ask for?
