Twenty Trees That Are Making Christmas Creepier

So we’re kicking off our festive celebrations today here on Popcorn Horror. As December gets underway, many of you will be starting to thing about this years decorations. Taking center stage in homes across the world will be the Christmas tree, but for some of us that’s a little too wholesome. Last year (against my will) my home was filled with pink and purple Frozen themed holiday decor, so I wanted to offer horror fans the opportunity to create something more unique with their trees.

Take a look at some of the fantastically spooky trees below, and show us your horror inspired trees on social media.
