Black, The New Christmas Tree Color

Some Interesting News... And What I Think About It...



Black Christmas treeI know I'm on the dull, safe side, not on the cutting edge, but I was surprised today. Apparently, the latest color for Christmas trees is black.

I read it in the news. It must be so. I did a Google search for "black Christmas tree" and it is so, indeed.

I don't care if someone wants a black tree. Black is no more a fake color than gold or silver or white. I remain a traditionalist, though. My artificial Christmas tree is green and it's going to stay that way. Wink

Black-interesting. I'd put up a black Christmas tree just to get a reaction.

It's the same over here. We've had black ones for a while, but there are definitely more this year - me I'm sticking with a real green one.

I'm with you on that, a tree should be green not any other color.

I must be old-fashioned but I think a black Christmas tree is totally unappealing...not that I don't like black (I have enough black clothes LOL), but it just doesn't seem right...rubs me the wrong way...I know for a fact I'll never buy one.....

I have had a black tree since 1992. I didn't feel like putting a tree up after my father died but, I found a black one and put white lights and all white bubble lights and white ornaments on it. A friend made me a black nativity for under my tree and when you walk in it is breath taking!!

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
