Danielle Melody submitted this photo with the comment “Surely Jack Skellington is the quintessential goth Christmas tree - top ornament? Points for creativity please?”
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.
