IMAG3877Actually, the Christmas sweaters at Anderson Lock today aren’t all that ugly. Laura Miller, who wore a red sweater adorned with a really big Christmas tree, won the contest but nearly everyone agreed that Jim Walsh’s sweater was the ugliest. It was a Christmas present (he says) but it was disqualified because with all that orange and those textured zig zags it just didn’t seem like Christmas.

The beach ball in the background may seem unseasonal, but it is the only inflatable decoration we have in the office, and it seems imperative that there should be an inflatable decoration at an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest!

A festive holiday spirit prevailed throughout the day, fueled with sweet things to eat, as well as veggies and pretzels for snacking. Happy Holidays from our office to yours!
