People are doing away with the traditional, green trees and have been opting for a more glamorous and chicer look for the holidays this 2018.

An E-commerce company named Wayfair revealed that there had been a 70 percent acceleration in site searches for black Christmas trees this year.

A spokesperson from the company, Julie Cassetina, confirmed that there had been quick inflation of black Christmas trees being posted on Instagram and other social media sites since 2017.

Online retailer Treetopia told Fox News that black is the fourth most in-demand color this year following green, white, and silver.

Spokesperson Tami Kelly said, "We offer seven different styles of black trees, from Tuxedo Black to Stiletto Black Pencil to the new Black Blue Ombre.”

On social media, the hype is intense with the hashtag #blackchristmastree being used almost 9,000 times this season on Instagram, and it’s not even Christmas yet.

For people wanting to join the trend, there are many types of artificial, black Christmas trees. Treetopia’s brand ambassador and blogger Jennifer Perkins said:

"Black trees are an easy next step for someone wanting to branch out beyond green or white. Not everyone is ready to go with a red or pink tree for their first time purchasing a colored tree.”

"Black Christmas trees are like a little black dress, they go with everything. You can dress them with ornaments and colorful accessories or you can keep them classic and subtle," she continued.

Another hype this year is the half-Christmas tree by Argos. It’s basically a six-foot tree, but the bottom branches have been stripped off.

Its purpose is to prevent cats or young children from destroying the ornaments and other decorations.

Meanwhile, for Christmas-themed recipes, try making the Reindeer Rice Krispies. Making them would be a fun, bonding moment with the family for this holiday season.

You can give them as treats for your children, serve them at parties, or give them as gifts to your co-workers, relatives, and friends.
