Dreaming of a black Christmas

Updated on May 26, 2015

A black Christmas

"I am dreaming of a black Christmas

Just like the ones I like to have

Where the jewels glisten

And men listen

To hear my voice like bells in the snow

I am dreaming of a black Xmas

With every Christmas text I send

May your days be naughty, kinky and dark

And make all your Christmases be black

I am dreaming of a black Christmas..."

White Christmas by Bing Crosby. My favourite Christmas song. Merry Christmas!

Black Christmas decorations

Tired of the same old white Christmas stuff? Why don’t you dare to be different this year and go for a classic, elegant but yet different theme for your Christmas decorations?

Black Christmas decorations are not only synonymous of gothic, black Christmas decorations can also be elegant and give your décor a unique twist that your friends will admire. You can go all the way and buy a black Christmas tree (like the one on the right from Asda for only £35), black ornaments, tableware and home accessories or you can just add touches of black to your everyday décor for an added zest.

Black Christmas decorations look fun when mixed with red or white. If you prefer a classier look, black and silver decorations are your call. I especially like to mix black Christmas decorations with silver and crystal. There is nothing more elegant than a black Christmas tree decorated only with crystal ornaments. Swarovski has a wonderfully elegant selection of mini ornaments for a wonderful festive effect.

You can also use Crystal ornaments to shine over black table cloths or to glimmer against a black curtain. Crystal ornaments look stunning on a black background. I especially like the elegant Christmas trees from Swarovski, they glimmer in faceted clear crystal with what appears to be floating stars in Comet Argent Light crystal.

Black Christmas trees

The beauty of black Christmas trees is that they are a feature by themselves. You don’t need much to decorate a black Christmas tree. In fact your black Christmas tree will look better if only holds a few ornaments like the crystal ornaments I mentioned above and just decorative Christmas lights like the string of snowflake lights sold at Asda from £10

If you are not ready to defy tradition and you prefer a green Christmas tree, you can still add black ornaments to add a black Christmas touch to your home.  You can either choose plain black Christmas ball ornaments for your tree ( has them at a very affordable price) or you can add the “rock touch” with black Christmas balls with the Kiss logo.

Dining in Black

The table is a very important place during Christmas time, so don’t forget to add black touches to your table decoration. You can go for a black tablecloth and silver napkins with silver candle holders and black candles for an elegant look. And of course, don’t forget the British tradition and add some Silver Crackers to your table, you can get them in silver glitter organza texture from

If you prefer a more relaxed look for your table, why not choose some fun tableware adding splashes of white and red over a white tablecloth.

But black can be fun; just use your imagination to create unforgettable Christmas decorations!

I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas

I am dreaming of a Black Christmas

"From Lewis Black, the uproarious and perpetually apoplectic New York Times-bestselling author and Daily Show regular, comes a ferociously funny book about his least favorite holiday, Christmas.

For most people, Christmas is a time of peace and goodwill. But most people are not Lewis Black. Like Dickens's most famous curmudgeon, Black says Humbug! to carols, holiday dinners, Christmas trees, decked halls, and boughs of holly. In I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas, he dares to celebrate the holiday season the only way he knows how: by letting loose on all things Yule.

All new, and sure to delight fans both new and old, I'm Dreaming of a Black Christmas is an instant holiday classic: funny, razor- sharp, the insightful, and quintessential Lewis Black. " (Amazon's product description)

      Did you see the skeleton on your Christmas tree? It was the first thing I noticed! Other than that the perfect tree for me this year, as we are decorating in white lights and silver/sparkly decorations to acknowledge our engagement only big jems and other flashy items! The tree will be so classy, and it will be the only time in my life that my Christmas tree has no color!

      love to you too TattoGuy :-*

      Well lender3212000, We celebrate Xmas every year and most people do the same every single year... I prefer variation, to do something different and if possible new.

      That's an idea TheListLady. How would a black Christmas tree look as part of an all-year decoration? I like the idea, specially dressed with red roses! It would look really nice in one of my red rooms...

      I would have sooooo much fun with a black tree. Wow! I'd decorate it in gold bulbs and some great LED lights. Or maybe tons of fake red roses. Wow - this is so elegant and all new to me.

      And I think I can undress it and maybe...just maybe leave it standing somewhere just looking classy all year. Wow! Count me in for a black Christmas!

      Thanks a million. And rated up!

      WOw, a very original idea for a hub, as well as for Christmas! This is very impressive. Black works for me. Not sure if it works for kids, though. Still, you have some really nice ideas in here that I like! Excellent!

      As always, your title pulls me to your hub :). Saw this link through Facebook and I was wondering what the heck it is! Thought it's something sad or something like that LOL. My mistake.

      Love black but unfortunately, black decors will give my husband and family a heart attack (on second thought, hehehehe). So I'll just settle with looking at the pics in your hub. Thanks for this sexy, intriguing hub :).

      This would be quite the change from the traditional wouldn't it. Interesting, interesting. NOt sure I would do it, however, I'm sure it would appeal to others. Thanks for bringing in a variation to consider.

      I enjoy being unique in everything I do including tthe way I decorate my home, Nan. I also like white Christmas trees, of course decorated with black accents.

      About your question of religious celebration, I am sure that a tree (regardless of its colour) has nothing to do with religion. I believe that the tree was a pagan tradition absorbed by the christian holiday. For me, a Christmas tree is just an item of decoration that I like to use.

      Very daring and unique, a black Christmas Tree. I prefer white, green, or red and pink. How does this fit in with the religious celebration? Are you making it a pagan holiday? I have a treasured sprayed white tree with balls of red, like holly. Black reminds me of something else.
