For a chance of pace from my posts on Latin American and US politics,
My son recently introduced me to all the glory that is the Stuff White People Like website. Last week they came up with ugly sweater parties, one of the more deplorable traditions of the Christmas season:
These parties feature festive drinks, Christmas music by Sufjan Stevens, and most importantly, intentionally hideous sweaters. These ugly sweaters provide white people with an invisible shield that protects them from any criticism that might emerge if any Christianity accidentally slips into the evening.
Of course, Colin Firth in an ugly sweater is still Colin Firth…
Spare your loved ones and yourself the pain of an ugly sweater. There’s only one Colin Firth!
