Although this gathering is more than a week away, you may need some time to get properly prepared … or then again, perhaps all you need is already hidden far back in the recesses of your closet.

To celebrate the holiday season, McCann's Pub & Grill of Massapequa is throwing its inaugural “Ugly Christmas Sweater Holiday Party” on Dec. 15, and the main theme is exactly as it’s described: all guests are asked to arrive in the most hideous holiday sweater that can find. So, whether you are willing to shop for something warm and weird, or just have the luck of having relatives who insist on purchasing you such garb – it could possibly pay off.

It all starts at 7:30 p.m. (with deals on drinks between 8 p.m.-11 p.m.), with a holiday gift basket going to the soul whose sweater is deemed the worst later in the evening. However, all are invited to greet Santa at this 21-year-old and over bash, as St. Nick is scheduled to be coming to see, ahem, who’s naughty and who’s nice.
