CHAMPAIGN -- 'Tis the season for holiday parties and dressing up in festive clothes. Salvation Army workers say special Christmas sweaters have been flying off shelves.

They're one of the most popular items this time of year. Some buy them to wear for "ugly sweater parties."

People from the community donate them year-round. Workers put them out in the winter.
