Drum Roll Please...The Winner of the 2014 Christmas Sweater Sunday Is...

Dottie Shaffer!

While there is no exact science in determining the most interesting Christmas sweater for our church's annual Christmas Sweater Sunday, this sweater offers a very unique feature this year. We liked the vintage Year 2000 Millennium themed sweater which caught us a bit off guard. Yes, one could argue that this is not technically a Christmas sweater since it is more about the New Year holiday, but it does have some Christmas like features.

These include festive symbols and a lot of red and green coloring. The best feature of all is the over the top large lettering that says, "Hey, you can't help but to look at my sweater!"

Please join me in congratulating Dottie as our newly crowned Christmas Sweater Sunday person of the year at First United Methodist Church. We thank everyone who submitted a Christmas sweater photo for the contest but we could only pick one.  To view random Christmas sweaters from Ugly Christmas Sweater Sunday, click on this link.

The good news is that there are only 364 days left before the next Christmas Sweater Sunday!
