Brian Miller, Adam Paulson, and Kevin Wool (a.k.a Team Ugly) are the founders of UglyChristmasSweaterParty.com. They met in the fall of 2000 while attending Indiana State University and have spent the past decade making fun of each other, tricking one another to take on foolish bets, and generally monkeying around. They attended their first Ugly Christmas Sweater Party in 2006, and soon after were inspired to start a blog and online venture to bring Ugly Christmas Sweater joy to people all over the world. They have appeared on Fox & Friends and CBS's Sunday Morning. They live in northwestern Indiana.
