Have yourself a gothic little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on, our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a gothic little Christmas
Make the Yuletide dark
From now on, our troubles will be miles apart
Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
So hang a cobweb from the highest bough
And have yourself a gothic little Christmas now
Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow So hang a cobweb from the highest bough
And have yourself a gothic little Christmas now

Why not make Jack the Pumpkin King proud and try some gothic Christmas ideas like our black cat inspired gothic tree (Darkness visible) Or dig up some genuine witch balls. Up in Cumbria where I was raised we hung olde witch balls from our Christmas tree not baubles and these were coloured or silvered glass, originally used as a charm against witchcraft (I swear this is true). You could see your own distorted reflection in them (which was spooky in itself).  No wonder I am named after a witch (but a good one).
