Thrash metal veterans SLAYER
have offered their own contribution to "ugly Christmas sweater," a ubiquitous feature of the holiday season which began to sprout up in the last several decades.
"Ugly Christmas sweater" or "tacky Christmas sweater" parties have been a holiday staple for several years, but there have been very few places to actually buy these sweaters. That has since changed, according to Time
magazine, which reports that vintage stores, the Salvation Army
, and Goodwill
are reaping the benefits of this craze, as are fast-fashion shops like H&M
and high-end retailers such as Nordstrom
"ugly Christmas sweater" appears to be only available in the U.K. and can be purchased from Backstreet Merchandise
