i'm dreaming of a black christmas


i just discovered the coolest thing ever! black christmas trees!
i can't imagine a more perfect thing. i have never been a fan of green trees, artificial or real. Here's a slightly amusing story about me that relates to that. When i first moved out on my own it was near christmas. i bought this small cheap artificial green tree to put up in my apartment. I wanted a silver tree real bad... so you know what i did? yeah, i spray painted that thing silver. I don't recommend it, not at all. It looked like a crappy green tree with silver spray paint splotches...so are you slightly amused? i have since then acquired a number of white trees and aluminum ones and now... i need a black one. i NEED it....

Love. It. With the right decorations it would be the Nightmare Before Christmas 2.

A little creepy, very cool, but creepy. It could be a lot of fun, and you could put it up on October and enjoy it even longer.

We got my brother a 7' black tree this year... very manly. It's covered with all his Star Trek ornaments! My head spins with the possiblilities of decorating that black tree for him.

I want a black one so that I can decorate it for Halloween. Your Swamp thing ornaments would look cool on a black tree!

There was an article in the paper recently saying black trees were the newest trend. I guess red are coming back too.
