In Taylor Swift's brand new video for her holiday single, "Christmas Tree Farm," we see Taylor unwrap a very special gift. No, it's not her cats, Olivia, Meredith, and Benjamin, or a present from her BFF, Selena Gomez. It's one of her first guitars!
The video, which is all about, yes, the Christmas tree farm where Tay grew up, and reliving those happy memories as an adult, features clips from Taylor's childhood home movies, including one of the all-important Christmases where she received a guitar. Little did her family know that Tay would go on to become one of the world's most influential singer-songwriters of all time, perhaps in part due to that very guitar!
We also see baby Taylor all bundled up in a cozy red knitted sweater with a hood, held by her mom Andrea, toddler Tay in a lavender snowsuit being pulled on a sled, and curly-haired child Taylor admiring the Christmas tree lights. She plays in the snow, sits on Santa's lap, dives into her stocking on Christmas morning, and pretty much has the best time ever. A toy train even circles the tree, just like in the movies! In short, it's adorable.
At about 2:56 in the video is when we see young Taylor unwrap her guitar. Do you think her parents felt the world change as their daughter held the new instrument for the first time? Probably.
Taylor dropped "Christmas Tree Farm" out of the blue, after a quick teaser video where she asked her cats their opinion on whether or not she should release it in time for the holiday season. "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," Taylor wrote on Twitter when the song and video officially dropped. Thanks to Tay, we've got our new favorite holiday song and will be playing "Christmas Tree Farm" on repeat until December 26 — and maybe after, TBH.
