"So today my family went looking for A Christmas tree. I tagged along to go looking for a tree to climb and maybe even fall out of. I didn’t fall, but I found a bunch of very climbable trees. I ended up climbing only one of them, but hopefully the rest of them will stick around until it’s their turn. It was really cold too, not that I am complaining, just mentioning the fact that it was really freacking super freezing cold and sunshine. So there’s a story for you, and a Goth up a Tree. Ended up finding our Christmas Tree too."


We can see how “freaking super freezing cold” it was for this goth, and I applaud her stellar effort at tree-climbing in the face of adversity.  I also applaud her motivation and resourcefulness for using her family’s frozen tree hunting adventures to discover climbable trees and pose for an excellent photo.  She’s high up the tree, she’s not smiling, and her creative eyeliner is evidence of her commitment to gothness in spite of the cold.   It’s daylight but bonus points for being able to see her breath condensation.
4.8 out of 5 - Bonus points for commitment.

You’d think that after a year of posting photos of goths up trees that someone would have submitted a photo of a goth up something resembling a Christmas tree, wouldn’t you?  Sadly, no one has.  The photo above is going to have to tide us over until someone helps me out.  I know, I know, my dedication is sorely lacking and I should get up a tree myself but, yet again, I have over indulged in Christmas “cheer” and the thought of strapping in to a corset brings tears to my eyes.
So, here we have a plastic goth Christmas ornament up a plastic tree.   I’d be happier if the tree was black like my Christmas tree is (of course).  There’s no questioning that he’s a goth and he’s at the top of the tree.  He’s smiling but he’s indoors and, you know, just as plastic as a few goths I know. 
2.5 out of 5 - Points for creativity: granted.  Merry bloody Christmas.
