9 Ways to Celebrate Spooky Christmas

It’s beginning to look a lot like…Christmas? Wait, I thought this was a year-round Halloween blog?!

December blog posts are part of the 13 Days of Creepmas. This post was originally published in December 2017 and last updated in November 2022.

Don’t panic, my spooky little friends. It is! And we are once again putting a Halloween spin on some of my favorite holiday activities to celebrate Spooky Christmas!

There is quite a bit of content on the blog to make your holiday season haunted, and I’ll be sharing more this year. You can check out my gift guides, my Krampus playlist, or even how I’ve gone Halloween hunting in December…and scored!

If you need a little inspiration, here are nine ways to get started with celebrating Spooky Christmas.

 

9 Ways to Celebrate Spooky Christmas

1. Decorate a Halloween Tree

The easiest way to make your holidays haunted is to decorate for them! I pulled together some of my Halloween decor that would double nicely for Christmas. I also shopped Halloween collections this year with the intent of decorating for the holidays.

Need a little inspiration? Check out my Frankenstein or Beetlejuice trees as well as my Spooky Christmas home tours from 2017 and 2019.

 

2. Make it Snow Spiders

Want to make spider snowflakes just like Jack? Head over to this Instructables post to learn how.

 

I love that ugly Halloween sweaters have become a THING! Here are 12 I am loving this year that you can grab for your upcoming holiday party.

3. Wear an Ugly Halloween Sweater

‘Tis the season for ugly sweaters…so why not throw everyone off and show your true holiday allegiance with a Halloween sweater? Check out these posts for my favorites:

 

4. Listen to Spooky Christmas Carols

Oh, yes – they do exist! The Spooky Vegan put together this beautiful Gothic Christmas playlist last year. I also enjoyed giving this Goth Christmas playlist a listen, and, of course, you can listen to my Krampus playlist!

 

5. Bake Creepy Christmas Cookies

Gingerbread happens to be one of my favorites during the holidays, so naturally, I had to put a spooky spin on them. My family-favorite recipe is on the blog here.

 

6. Drink Halloween Hot Chocolate

And while you’re enjoying a gingerdead man or two, don’t forget a bit of Halloween hot chocolate to warm up with! Still have a few Halloween Peeps tucked away? This is a perfect use for them.

 

7. Build a Haunted Gingerbread House

Halloween gingerbread houses have become increasingly popular in the last few years. Trader Joe’s always carries one! You can also usually find them at chain grocery stores. Need one in the off-season? Never fear – Amazon has lots of options.

 

8. Carve a Christmas Jack-o-Lantern

Still have pumpkins hanging around? Carve one for Christmas. I usually have several left over from October, and I try to carve one for the holiday season! Grab this Krampus pattern here.

 

9. Watch Creepy Christmas Movies

I’m no horror expert, but I’m getting better…and “Krampus” has become one of my favorite holiday movies in the last few years. If you’re looking for more recommendations, check out these:
