Merry Gothmas: You don’t have to abandon your favorite color around the holidays

If you prefer your Halloween decorations to your Christmas ones, you're going to love this. "Merry Gothmas" decor is a new trend that's popping up everywhere this year, giving those whose hearts are a little colder and blacker an alternative to red and green, silver and gold, mistletoe, holly and bells.

"Merry Gothmas" takes traditional holiday decor and gives it a Goth makeover — think black Christmas trees and tinsel, presents wrapped in gray plaid paper and black stockings hung by the chimney with care. It's still Christmas. It's just a little darker. In fact, there's not a color in sight — Merry Christmas to the black parade.
