Black Christmas Trees Are a Thing (and They’re Not As Goth As You Think)
When we think about holiday decorations, the first colors that come to mind are usually red and green… or maybe silver and gold, like the beloved Christmas song. Not usually top of the list for festive hues? Black. But it seems that these darker non-traditional Christmas trees may actually be trending big time this year. On a recent “Good Morning America” segment, Wayfair.com reps announced that searches for black trees are up a significant 70% from last year. And according to artificial tree hub Treetopia, black trees are already the second-most popular color (after green) in Arizona, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Delaware. Thinking of getting in on the trend yourself? Check out our top picks — with everything from Scandi-inspired looks to glamorous branches — below.
