Dreaming of a black Christmas
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 (Amazon.com has them at a very affordable price) or you can add the “rock touch” with black Christmas balls with the Kiss logo.

The dishes are crafted from high-fired ceramic earthenware for strength, and their motif is attractively varied for a little extra spice.

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 Amazon.com
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)
