Pääkallot, lepakot ja hämähäkinseitit koristavat halloween-kuusen oksia.

Kuusen koristelu on monissa kodeissa yleinen jouluperinne, mutta koristeltu kuusi ei ole enää vain joulun juttu. Popsugar kertoo, että ihmiset ovat alkaneet hyödyntää muovikuusiaan ja koristelevat ne halloween-teemaan sopiviksi – siis halloween-kuusiksi.

Halloween-kuuset ovat olleet juttu ainakin parin vuoden ajan, mutta trendi kasvattaa suosiotaan. Se näkyy myös sosiaalisesta mediasta löytyvien kuusikuvien määrästä, sillä niitä on julkaistu inspiraation lähteeksi yli 17 000.

Ihmiset ovat koristelleet halloween-kuusiaan niin lepakoilla, hämähäkeillä ja hämähäkinseitillä kuin kummituksilla ja luurangoillakin sekä käyttäneet värimaailmana etenkin oranssia ja violettia. Kuusen latvaan on tähden sijaan saattanut päätyä pääkallo tai noidan hattu ja oksilla roikkuu joulupallojen sijaan kurpitsapalloja.

*excerpt from the Wall Street Journal (New York) of an article they wrote about Halloween trees and interviewed me for. I totally thought it was bogus when they tried to contact me, but then @treetopia assured me that they were, in fact, serious. “For some households, Halloween kicks off a three-month period of home decorating. Christina Book, a 35-year-old-stay-at-home mother of three in Bakersfield, Calif., creates a Halloween witch-stuck-in-a-tree in her home’s entryway by positioning a plastic witch and a pointy hat in a pre-lit artificial black fir. ‘Whenever people come in it’s ‘oh my gosh, you have a Halloween tree,’ “ she says. Her trees come out from a backyard storage shed in early September, and she and her three children trim it with orange ribbon, store-bought ornaments and homemade Popsicle-stick crafts, children’s photographs, and glittery classroom projects. ‘I always take a few steps back as I’m going, to make sure things are distributed evenly, “ says Mrs. Book. She aims to have the tree completed by the second week in September so the family has six weeks to enjoy it. After Halloween it is replaced by Autumnal décor like gourds and pumpkins for Thanksgiving. Then, her 7ft. Christmas tree goes up, trimmed with home-sewn burlap garland, strings of popcorn, cranberries, and an “our new home” ornament from 2006. ‘It’s more sentimental, ‘ she says. ‘The Halloween tree is funny and silly.’” The article went on to discuss a few more thoughts from me and even mentioned our cat Milo! Obviously it was written last year as the tree it describes is the one I decorated last year. The above photo is from this year’s tree. Anytime I put my tree up I will always remember the year there was enough interest in it to be written in the WSJ. Makes me chuckle. #halloweenwiththeboooooooks #myhalloweenhome #halloween #treetopia #wsj #wallstreetjournal #newyork #halloweentree #day2
