Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

My cute mama works in the garment industry in New York City making clothes for specialty retailers.

A couple of months ago, my mom mentioned they were making some funny-looking sweaters at her company.

She said, "I don't know what they're for but they're huge sweaters with holes for six heads."

I started laughing and said they're probably Christmas sweaters.

My mom replied, "White people are weird."

Then she promptly brought one home to giggle over and take pictures in.

Too bad my mom didn't bring home the 8-headed one.

The sweater is now making rounds with the family and is currently on a ski trip with my uncle's fam and their friends.

That sweater is more popular than me.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from my ugly sweater family to yours!

My mom and little cousin took the inaugural Chen Family Ugly Christmas Sweater picture.

The Most Important Reason to Love Winter


I love winter.

Because it means cold weather.

And, baggy clothes.

It means snow.

And, hot pink boots.

Hot chocolate:

Winter also means:

I don't have to shave my legs.

And, that.

Is the most important reason of all.

To love winter.
