Maybe it has something to do with the kind of year we've had to endure but black Christmas trees are really popular this holiday season.

I've seen so many people already (don't worry, our tree is up too) posting pictures of their Christmas decorations and one thing I've noticed is how many people have black Christmas trees. I guess it really is the theme for Christmas 2020.

I'm not a huge fan of black trees because I feel they take away the warm holiday vibe that I grew up with. Maybe it has something to do with my age because I know I wanted one when I was in my 20s and 30s but not so much these days. I used to have an all-white tree but after the first year, I didn't like that look either. We currently have a flocked tree that I think is cool as hell.

Julie Cassetina, a spokesperson for Wayfair had this to say:

Black Christmas trees are not only a unique statement piece, but they have their own mystical presence, of the odd appeal of black trees. They really help ornaments and string lights pop. You could deck them out with lighter colored ornaments that’ll really stand out against the black, or simply add delicate, white string lights that almost create a feeling of evergreens at night in the wilderness.

Would you buy a black Christmas tree?
