Rightside .ROCKS the ugly Christmas sweater

We take our holidays seriously around Rightside. From countless Halloween costumes and decorations to boxes filled with donations for local shelters, there’s no limit to how far employees will go to celebrate.

Our December 4 Ugly Sweater competition is proof of our devotion to absurdity, merriment, and glitter, with dozens of people wandering hallways and haunting conference rooms wearing sweaters that light up, sparkle, dazzle, and terrify.

Enjoy this small sample of Rightside holiday cheer and fashion faux pas galore.
