The “Ugly Sweater” phenomenon was alive and well again this year at The Control Group. As the title suggests, this is the time of year when we break out those old ugly sweaters and show them to the world. Through the years, the sweater has graduated from the ugly “Christmas” sweater to just any old thing that will do.
This year’s sweaters represented everything from pop culture to politics and everything in between: Trump, movies, iconic phrases. We also included some of the pups in this craze. They made the ugliest of sweaters look super adorable. The tiniest members of our team sure knew how to rock their ensembles.
After a long voting process, the winners were chosen. First place: Janet. Second place: Gus. And Duke won best pup sweater. Are these sweaters really ugly, or are they just “unique?” I’m sure our winners (or losers) wouldn’t mind being classified in either of those categories.
To add a little yum to the festivities, everyone was treated to apple cider, holiday cookies, and eggnog. It also happened to be brunch Friday (a little extra treat) in our beach office. It was a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
