Happy Taylor Swift’s Day of Birth, everyone! It’s a magical day that we should all be observing in her honour. But it’s also a busy time of year so perhaps you should try to combine your T-Swift jubilations with your Christmas preparations. How, you ask? Well, I’m here today to show you how to celebrate Taylor Swift’s birthday with a seasonal twist.
Listen to Taylor’s Christmas album
Have you heard Sounds of the Season: The Taylor Swift Holiday Collection? If not, you should definitely check it out. The EP includes several covers of traditional holiday carols, as well as two original Christmas songs, “Christmases When You Were Mine” and “Christmas Must Be Something More”. These are must-haves on your holiday playlist (side note: if you’re not sure what else should be on it, you can check out our Fangirl Christmas playlist). While doing all of your holiday preparations today, you should definitely be listening to Taylor’s holiday jams.
Bake Cookies… Swift Style
Taylor is famous for loving to stay at home and do adorable things like bake, so get in her spirit (and the holiday one) today by creating some cookie deliciousness. You could even round up your Tay-Tay approved girl group to help! #SquadGoals! I’ve even got what you should make covered, for maximum Swift points. Taylor’s Chai Tea Eggnog Cookie recipe can be found here.
Wrap Christmas Gifts for All of Your Friends (And/Or Fans)
Last year Taylor celebrated Swiftmas. If you don’t know what went down, I highly recommend clicking the link to check it out. Basically Taylor spent time buying, wrapping, and delivering gifts to tons of her fans. You can spend today getting into the spirit of Swiftmas by wrapping gifts for all of your friends and family. Bonus points if the wrapping paper has Taylor’s face on it!
DIY Snowglobes by Taylor
Taylor made an impression on me a couple years ago when she did homemade snow globes and posted them on Instagram. I still think about how cute and festive they are to this day.
If you’re interested in creating these awesome decorations, I’ve found a tutorial for you on TaylorTalk.org… Check it out here.
Support the Cats!
‘Tis the time of year to give back! It’s well known that Taylor loves her cats Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson. And why shouldn’t she? They’re adorable.
Get in the T-Swift spirit by donating time or money to your local animal shelter to help all those kitties (and other animals) that don’t have homes to go to. Or, you know, just give to your favourite cause… as one of the most charitable celebrities in the world, Taylor supports all sorts of causes, and giving back in general is totally in her spirit.
There you have it! Your guide to celebrating Taylor Swift’s birthday, holiday style!
