So how can you add a little gothic flare to the holiday season?
The Christmas Tree
The centre piece of the holidays is often the tree. Why not go for a non traditional colour like purple, or black? White can also be quite striking when coupled with black ornaments.
You can also add gothic touches to your tree with ornaments like these sparkly crows. You can even go all like this Nightmare Before Christmas themed tree.
Mixing black with purple, or red or even green, can keep things festive while still adding a dark charm to your decor.
At this time of year clothing retailers put out their holiday wear often featuring velvets and satins in black and jewel tone colours. You can find great simple velvet dresses like the one above and dress it up with gothy accessories. I often lament that at this time of year when I've spent my money on gifts, is when I see more clothes I like. I guess I'll have to wait until the Boxing Day and January sales.
You can also add a spooky touch to your holiday baking like making these skeleton gingerbread men.
I think too that holiday treats like dark chocolate, red wine, and rich foods adds an elegant and romantic flare to the season.
