"Pinpointing the rise of the Ugly Christmas Sweater is no easy task.  However two icons (or enablers?) stand out. We have Bill Cosby (as Cliff Huxtable in The Cosbies) and Chevy Chase (National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation) who made it fashionable to wear these hideously appealing sweaters.

This trend would fade in the 90’s, but would resurface once again around 2001.  This trend has steadily moved upward and as of 2010, ugly Christmas sweaters are once again highly fashionable." Source:
