“I’m dreaming of a BLACK Christmas”

22 Dec

OK – I know it’s not traditional to think black during Christmas, but it’s all I’ve been thinking about.  I know, it’s weird/strange/freaky/unconventional/almost scary.   I’m thinking polar opposite and having fun with it, though some would think I am more in mourning than celebrating.  It’s bizarre to have a desire to try something so out of the ordinary during the holidays for me, however, I love the color black so why not try and make it a staple for Xmas.  I love the traditions that come with  this particular holiday.  I love everything that Christmas is and what it represents but I want to do something out of the “norm” this holiday.  Maybe that’s why I’m going a little goth this Christmas season.  I don’t want to ever be bored or robotic about the holidays so I’m vamping the customary colors up, or should I just say, blacking-out.  I’m not so sure if it will be something I try once or will keep up for holidays to come…eh, I’ll give it a whirl.

      So true. A little bizarre for such a cheery and colorful holiday but, hey, change is good every once and awhile.
