Not everyone celebrates Christmas, but almost everyone wants an ugly sweater for their December holiday. So if you’re into ugly Hanukkah sweaters that are good for more than magical 8 days, we’ve got the perfect suggestions for you, including the Night Before Hanukkah Sweater worn by Seth Rogen in ‘The Night Before’ trying to prove the very thing we mention in the opening sentence.
The Night Before Hanukkah Sweater
The Night Before Hanukkah Sweater comes from the film The Night Before about three best friends trying to have one last massive Christmas party before adulthood separates them, looking for an elusive, legendary event they’ve been looking for their entire lives.
Christmas? Well, the character Seth Rogen plays, Isaac Greenberg, is out to prove that horizontal stripes don’t make a person look fat and holiday sweaters can be more than just Christmas ones. Hence, the Night Before Hanukkah Sweater was born. Buy it on Amazon here.
Matching Ugly Hanukkah Menorah Sweater
One of the better ones in their ugliness, featuring a fully lit Menorah and two chubby little dancing dreidels, this one will probably make a lot of your friends jealous during the eight days of Hanukkah. Buy Women here, Men here.
Ugly Hanukcat Holiday Sweater
Another cat sweater making an appearance and perfect sense on Hanukkah is this blue’ish cat version, with what appears like a Jewish nurse-cat at the center of it all. It cost $36.
His and Hers Dreidel Hanukkah Sweater
The concept here fits perfectly with both the holiday spirit through the letters on the spinning dreidel, and the idea behind ugly sweaters for holidays: Featuring something that makes no sense to be putting on, but in the context of Hanukkah, it’s perfect. Buy it here.
Happy Llammaka Sweater
While it’s spelled Yarmulke (or Kippah) it sounds like Yamaka and two L’s make a Y, so this jewish llama makes perfect sense during the 8 days of Hanukkah, or whenever you feel like joking around. Buy it here.
Happy Hanukcat Sweater
The happy Hanukcat sweater isn’t just a nice play with words to wear while you’re lighting the Menorah and saying whatever it is that needs to be said. It’s a mild reference to the classic (or ancient, depends on how you like it) video game, Alley Cat. You can buy it here.
Night Before Hanukkah Sweater
This sweater is about representing the Star of David and its place in winter. No warm colors or anything of the like. Just white and icy blue to make you feel like winter is truly upon us. Buy it here.
HAPPY HANUKKAH Sweater
Sometimes the best thing to do is keeping it simple – White, Blue and just blessing everyone with a happy holiday, which tends to add a few pounds to everyone involved because of the “dietetic” food. Buy it here.
This Hanukkah jumpsuit looks like it came straight out of a Fallout vault. But infact, it’s an onesie. Because if you can wear a Hanukkah sweater and Hannukah sweatpants, it makes perfect sense to think about the miracle of the oil lasting for 8 days even in your sleep, covered from all sides by the holiday spirit. Buy it here.
*Bonus, Dreidel Joggers
The perfect addition for the dreidel sweater, the dreidel swants are such an atrocity on the eyes they’re perfect for Hanukkah, making it a wonderful, eye-popping complete set, buy it here.
We still don’t want you to miss out on the ugly sweaters out there for Christmas (you can wear them even if you don’t celebrate the holiday), so they’re here for your enjoyment.
