Nothing says the holidays like duds so bad they’re great, and Beyond readers were happy to share the best of the worst.

Lisa Sallin & Rachel Mittleman

Round Meadow Elementary School teachers Lisa Sallin of Thousand Oaks and Rachel Mittleman of Agoura dress up for an ugly sweater party at the school.

Childhood Pals

Each year childhood pals Ian McKay, Alex Blackburn and Justice Bublitz, all living in Newbury Park, and David Bailey of Camarillo make a pilgrimage to JCPenney to find their Christmas sweaters for the season.

Teak and Bernadine

Teak (Thomas) and Bernadine Murphy of Thousand Oaks celebrate the season with
a spot of satire.

Moss Family

Dana, Ray and Hayley Moss catch the holiday spirit with family members Roman and
Marty Wickman of Glendale.

Hannah Slaven

Hannah Slaven of Camarillo got all dolled up in a holiday party photo booth. Even the oversized glasses, which, she says, make her look like her mom, were from the prop box.

Lucy Reisch

Lucy Reisch of Westlake Village topped her holiday outfit with a Christian Dior hat and asked her fiancé to shoot a pic.

Jamie Reinhart

It’s not exactly an ugly holiday sweater but we still got a laugh seeing Jamie Reinhart of Thousand Oaks decked out as Sasquatch Santa with friends Luna and Terra.


Missie the Chihuahua mix loves to don her holiday duds. She’s best friends with Lisa Loessberg of Simi Valley.


Once those marriage vows have been solemnly pledged the wedding party can really cut loose.
Please send in your wackiest wedding photos and your most embarrassing bridesmaid’s dress for the next Readers Corner.

Send photos to: before Nov. 13.
