Last night I received a text from Kevin that read, "Black is the new green. I hate trends!" He was talking about the hottest new trend in Christmas Trees. According to one online retailer, the purchase of black Christmas Trees are up 70% this year compared to last.
Hmmm, I guess they are kind of pretty with the lights and all, but I feel they look almost burned, which gives me feelings of sadness rather than the joyful bliss I usually get when I look at our tree.
Kevin simply thinks they are ugly and certainly would never jump on board a new trend just because others have.
What do you think of the new black Christmas Tree trend?
