Miseltoe and Christmas Sweaters

So Mickey and Minni Mouse are getting into the Christmas spirit under the mistletoe. According to a custom of Christmas cheer, any two people who meet under a hanging of mistletoe are obliged to kiss. The custom is of Scandinavian origin.

Mickey is all embarrassed, 'cause he just got kissed or that he is wearing a Christmas sweater and a Santa hat.

We have all seen crazy Christmas sweaters, what's their origin? I'm guessing it's from grandmas wanting to be cruel to their grand kids once a year. They're always nice, so this gesture may seem nice, but it's not. Just go to a Goodwill store. They have a section just for Christmas sweaters, no joke! Here is a blog about the ugly sweater style. There is even an online store that's all about the ugly sweater.

As you have seen in the past posts, I have a salt and pepper collection and have been blogging about it, just like this blog. I photographed the collection in one day to have a consistent look to the photos. Someone else had the same idea, but for his Christmas Sweater Collection. His collection includes sweatshirts, vests and turtlenecks too. More sweater choices for your closet are here.

Have you been to a sweater party? We have, that's how we found out about the Goodwill aisle.

We know you have a crazy Christmas Sweater, let's make it pay. From now until December 30th, The Craftsman B&B will give you a 20% discount on a nights stay. All you have to do is mention this blog and show up for breakfast wearing, you guessed it, a Christmas Sweater! Just like our S&P collection, the uglier, the better.
