There’s a new sensation making its way through some households across the U.S. It’s called a Halloween Christmas tree, and they are becoming all the rage.

Instead of adorning a Christmas tree with red, green, and silver ornaments, silver tinsel and garland, and maybe even some candy canes, families are putting up trees decorated with pumpkins, skulls, spiders, and other Halloween-inspired decorations.

Whether the tree theme is family-friendly, like The Nightmare Before Christmas or cute baby monsters, or super scary, like zombie, skeleton, or horror-movie themed, you’ll have fun creating your very own Halloween Christmas tree.

Check out these eight super cool Halloween Christmas trees that’ll inspire you to put up your own.
