Owners can put it up for Halloween and keep it up through December.\nAccording to ABC, the black allows those who celebrate Christmas to vary their tree decorations every year with different themes and arrangements.\nBlack also complements a wider array of colours and finishes than the standard green.\nOmbre trees are a less popular but still trending alternative.\nView this post on Instagram I love Christmas ✨ #holiday #salon #lash #lashlove #lashes #lashextensions #holidaycheer #ombre #ombrechristmastree #eyelashextensions #love #lights A post shared by Chrysalis Studio (@chrysalis.lash.studio) on Nov 26, 2018 at 5:38pm PST\nView this post on Instagram Made my own ombré Christmas 🎄 #spraypaint #ombrechristmastree #saree #wrappedinasaree A post shared by Tammy Queen (@tqueen247) on Dec 10, 2017 at 7:33pm PST\n@lucymarlowembedded via\nOf course, black is not the only colour to have taken over Christmas trees this year.
