This month’s cover concept developed after a staff discussion about ugly sweaters and their popularity this time of year. Our creative solutions manager ran with the idea, which produced the sweater look that I would be proud to wear.
My family takes the ugly sweater contest trend seriously. Not content with simply dressing in fantastically gaudy sweaters for Christmas Eve, the engineers in the family compete to see who can create the most unique lighted sweater. I’ve been warned that my older brother will be partaking in the contest this year along with the younger generation. Gen Z and the Millenials vs. the Boomers may be the holiday entertainment I didn’t know I needed.
As we close out 2022, I think about our readers who call, send letters and emails, and share photos of their own families, which I treasure.
Sharing photos of what’s most important in our lives connects us and helps break down barriers of any differences we may have. Keep sharing your photos and look for them to be published throughout 2023.
