The bitchy redhead must confess, she loves everything holiday related! Maybe it’s because this will be my first actual holiday in a country that celebrates X-mas, but I happily got on the slide of trees, reindeer and presents but of course I wanted everything to be in my favorite doomy and gloomy fashion!
Sadly this year I had no time for proper holidays preparations, so this is me, wishing myself and all of you a black X-mas (or Festivus!) next year, and all you need for it!
I see a green tree and I want to paint it black!
Choosing a different colour for your tree can be all you really need for that special effect, my tree this year is dark purple (and oh so pretty, i will show you at the end!!) but you can find a whole variety of black and other dark coloured trees out there is the plastic tree forest called the internets.
Your “garden variety” black tree can be bought on e-bay
Or if you are feeling really special, how about upside down black tree?
I’m special, small upside down tree kind of special!
Or just use a branch, a black, old, preferably burned in the fires of hell branch.
If you are crafty you can always make your own grim decorations, just be careful as if you just fancy yourself crafty your house will look like after a black glitter sand storm
Yeah, maybe just find some really cool decorations online instead, the kind that’s made by people who know what they are doing.
festive little dead things
Or plainly buy some at your local store, that’s what I did
They taste pretty good too! (they really do, my partner is Scandinavian and I got to try some thanks to him).
And most important, make sure your holiday decorations represent you!
I know nobody cares but here is our little tree, it’s purple, small and cute!
I could not find an evil Santa to go under it, so this year The Golem from Prague takes his place, because while bringing you presents is fun, making a killing spree in your name is a way cooler holiday’s fairy tale
Marry X-mas and happy Festivus for the rest of us!
