Alright people, listen up: October is too early to put up Christmas decorations. I know we're all eager for the most wonderful time of the year to begin, but two full months in advance is just too far. Besides, skipping ahead to December means ignoring all the decorating possibilities Halloween has to offer. Trick-or-Treaters expect spider webs, orange lights, and fog machines to spook them when they knock on your door. Seeing Rudolph on your lawn would just confuse them. But if you really can't wait for Christmas, why not combine the holidays with a Halloween Christmas tree?
Halloween Christmas trees popped up as a trend last Halloween, and they're still going strong this year, with people posting their trees on social media. If you're confused as to exactly what I'm talking about, think Christmas trees, but instead of decorating the tree with Christmas ornaments and lights, you cover it in everything spooky — pumpkins, skulls, spiders, and whatever other Halloween-themed decorations strike your fancy. It's a fun and easy way to decorate for Halloween, and it's economical if you get an artificial tree; just redecorate the same tree when it's time for Christmas.
Treetopia sells trees specifically for Halloween, as does Amazon, so it's never been easier to pull off this decor trend. P.S., I especially like these candy corn inspired trees ($50, Amazon). So if you're feeling the the idea of a scary tree this year, read on to take a look at some of the best I've seen in 2018.
