Colored Christmas trees - yay or nay?
Apparently the 70's are in full revival, from urban crafting circles to long haired little boys and now colored Christmas trees. What do we think of this, Culture?
My first instinct is to boo a blue Christmas tree. I mean seriously, the audacity. Like trees are naturally going to grow out of the ground the color of Smurfdom and then just blaspheme themselves all over the face of your living room in atrocious orange. Please. Santa likes red and green and the occasional Ikea twist, but loud Christmas trees are an abomination.
But wait. What is a Christmas tree supposed to be in the first place? Not like it conveniently grew in your living room in front of that coffee table and just sprouted LED lights in the gentle hands of nature. It's barely even religious! It's a big, ole decorative pain the ass. I assume the normal palette of your home isn't traditional holiday colors, so really, why not a pink tree?
I think colored Christmas trees share a little of my mind space with Lady Gaga and lattes from McDonald's - something you're totally against until you're totally for in one light bulb moment. See also: Glee, green olives, jeggings and getting pregnant.
But never mind me. Apparently this is in, folks. Colored Christmas trees are the new tweed. If you can get past a little awkwardness at first concept, you will look at regular trees with pity. They will seem mired with the obsolescence of Christmas yesterday, what with their stinking red and green bows that clash with the beautiful turquoise you've worked so hard to fill your home with this year. (TREND NERD.)
That said, my tree will totally be army green. Sorry, moda.
