So Taylor Swift is trending again, and it’s not because of any drama. Outta nowhere, the Artist of the Decade dropped a Christmas single and video, and everyone is losing their collective minds because 1) it’s Taylor Swift and by default, the world pays attention to every single thing she does; and 2) biases aside, it’s a damn good Christmas song. Here’s everything you should know about “Christmas Tree Farm”.
No one saw this coming…
When we say it came out of nowhere, it really came out of nowhere. We were blindsided, but in the very best way.
…But she was probably hinting at this song from the “ME!” and “Lover” videos
Nothing in Taylor’s videos happens by accident, so we think this may have been a long time coming.
Why “Christmas Tree Farm”? She grew up on one
I actually did grow up on a Christmas tree farm. In a gingerbread house, deep within the yummy gummy gumdrop forest. Where, funnily enough, this song is their national anthem. #ChristmasTreeFarm song and video out now https://t.co/p9Hk8blYpS pic.twitter.com/rTdGd1wIhK

No wonder Taylor’s lyrics are full of the stuff of fairytales–she grew up in one.
Die-hard Swifties might recognize the farm from Taytay’s IG
