It’s that time of year again when we all gather around to decorate our Christmas trees!
We all know the classic decorations that go up on the tree - ornaments shaped like snowflakes, bells, and Santas.
But why do some people choose to add a few creepy ornaments here and there?
Let’s take a closer look at why people like to add a spooky twist to their festive decorations.
The Tradition of Creepy Ornaments
It turns out, it’s not as strange as you may think for people to decorate their trees with creepy ornaments!
In fact, some families have been doing it for centuries.
From Victorian-era porcelain dolls to gothic gargoyles, these spooky decorations are often passed down from generation to generation in many families.
It seems like this tradition is especially popular in European countries such as Germany and Austria. (Cue in Krampus!)
The Appeal of Being Scared
But why do people choose to put these creepy items on their Christmas trees?
One reason could be that it adds an element of suspense and mystery to the holiday season.
After all, who doesn’t love being scared? - Ummm... me! 😱
People enjoy the thrill of being scared followed by the knowledge that they are safe and sound in their own homes.
Plus, it gives us something extra to talk about while celebrating with family and friends.
Aesthetics Matter Too
These creepy ornaments also add an interesting visual contrast when placed among traditional Christmas decorations such as candy canes and snowflakes.
While most ornaments are bright and cheerful, creepy ones provide a darker element which can help create an eerier atmosphere during the holidays - duhh.
And let’s face it - they look cool too! Well... perhaps.
So, if you're looking for something different this year for your holiday decorations, why not try adding a few spooky ornaments?
Whether you're a fan of classic horror movie characters or just enjoy being scared from time to time, creepy Christmas decorations can be just what you need for your holiday celebration!
Who knows - you may even start your own tradition by passing down your creepy creations from one generation to the next.
Whatever you decide, happy decorating!
