Goth Up Your Christmas
Snow would be far more dramatic if it came in pure black or venomous red. Santa could use a worldwide outfit re-design that swaps his beanie for a top hat. Everyone should get a lump of coal in their stockings—as long as that lump of coal possesses bewitching powers. Though those changes would be far too outlandish to execute overnight (or period), here are a few ways you can goth up your Christmas QB style:
•Whatever you choose to wear Christmas day, make sure you're equally set to hit history's most fabulous funeral or do lunch with the Addams Family.
•A touch of food coloring can turn even sugar cookies into mysterious morsels. Dye your holiday treats dark purple or blue. Mix them together for black.
•Put on vampire fangs for all holiday family portraits. See how many pictures you can get away with before your mother finally notices.
•Assemble fabric paint, craft glue, and plastic spiders. It's time to re-do your stocking.
•A little construction paper, Scotch tape, and acrylic paint's all you need to turn all the players in your Nativity set into sorcerers! Give them teeny witch and wizard hats, and dark robes.
•Exercise your artistic license and re-write the lines to your top Christmas carols. Who says Frosty can't be a zombie? And why can't Rudolph be a werewolf?
