NEW YORK (PIX11) -- It’s that one day in the year when gaudy meets tacky, and they meet up with ugly to celebrate the holidays.

National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day started out about 5 years ago as a joke but it has clawed its way into the mainstream and it’s translating into big business.

Whether you hit the big box stores or vintage shops, these hideous gems boast price tags that can range from $45-60 bucks.
