Where Did the "Ugly Sweater" Originate?

active adult communities holiday sweater

The birthplace of the original ugly holiday sweater party was in Vancouver.  The city now abounds with "fugly" knitwear parties, including the Commodore's famous annual sell-out event.

The ugly sweater first became a household meme in the 1980s with The Cosby Show's, Bill Huxtable leading the way. Chevy Chase's character in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation added to the holiday fun.
In essence, the ugly sweaters are a unique and fun tradition that creates laughter, nostalgia, and a sense of festive fun to the holiday season.

What do Active Adult Communities offer?

Active adult communities are purpose-built and designed especially for those who desire maintenance-free living, are a renter by choice and may be downsizing (for whatever reason) a well-designed, upscale rental option right in their own hometown or local community.

Active adult communities are active and offer rich programming alongside a contemporary, elegant, luxurious apartment home setting for busy, socially engaged adults.  Residents of active adult communities want to stay connected with their kids, families and communities, but they also want a fantastic home where they can relax, be social, and spend time doing what interests them most.

Active adult communities offer a full calendar of events that include resident directed programming to support networking and helping residents to get to know one another. It is a community of acquaintances and friends. Activities in the community include monthly happy hours, poker night, book club, gardening, walking clubs and more!

*Restrictions may apply. Must wear an ugly sweater. One gift card per person.
