Christmas Tree Farm
Taylor Swift recently released a nostalgic Christmas song that recalls her childhood on a Christmas tree farm. Called “Christmas Tree Farm,” the track features old home movies of Taylor’s parents and younger brother as featured in the video.
This track has become a sensation in the music industry and it’s certainly worth listening to. Not only is it an infectious tune, but its lyrics are poignant and truly capture all of Christmas’ joy.
Swift wrote the song about growing up on a tree farm in Pennsylvania and how happy she is to return there each holiday season. There’s nothing quite like spending time with family during the festive season!
Christmas tree farming is an extensive process that begins with seedlings, then grows and prunes trees before being ready for sale. Each tree can take up to seven years to reach a certain size.
After eight years, farmers harvest trees, cut them up and package them as precuts for sale. This laborious and lengthy process can be quite stressful for farmers.
Christmas tree farmers receive extensive education and training to prepare for this role. During this period, they study agricultural science, economics, agronomy, plant disease management, and other aspects of farming.
They collaborate with a team of experienced farmers and learn from them. Eventually, they can earn a bachelor’s degree in agriculture and become certified by the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers.

Not only do you get to spend quality time with your loved ones during the holidays, but your efforts also allow them to receive something they will remember for life – something they won’t forget! This job allows for amazing memories that will last a lifetime!
It’s Nice To Have A Friend
Taylor Swift’s influential pop and country music has made her a household name, but she’s also known for crafting powerful songs about friendship and love that draw inspiration from her own experiences. For instance, her song “It’s Nice To Have A Friend” is an endearing tribute to childhood friendships that continue today.
The line, “It’s nice to have you as my friend/ I can always count on you,” is very close to her own experience. This particular friend had a significant impact on her life; indeed, she married him shortly after recording the song.

Her diary indicates she began dating Alwyn in October 2016. He had previously been linked to Gigi Hadid and is believed to be openly gay.
Swift wrote in her diary that she and Alwyn had an “intense connection,” even if they have not been photographed together. This may have inspired Swift to write this song, which many speculate is about Alwyn.
Though this song is short, fans and critics alike have enjoyed listening to it repeatedly. It’s one of the shortest tracks on her latest album Lover, released on August 23.
Taylor Swift, Louis Bell and Adam Feeney collaborated on this song which was produced by Frank Dukes and released on Republic Records on August 23rd, 2019.
