Taylor Swift responds to fan who used "Christmas Tree Farm" in charitable holiday light display


It’s the season of giving, and Taylor Swift is doing her part.

As previously reported, she donated $13,000 each to two moms struggling to make ends meet during the COVID-19 pandemic. And in another recent gesture of kindness, the singer reached out to a fan who used her song “Christmas Tree Farm” in her family’s light display.

Sarah Bailey, a 25-year-old from Ohio, posted her family’s annual Christmas light show on social media, revealing in the caption that they were also providing a COVID-safe food dropbox for people to drop off donations for the local food bank.

Sarah tagged Taylor hoping she would see — and she did!

Taylor sent Sarah a DM, writing, “Sarah! I loved your family’s Christmas lights show!!! Thank you (and your dad) so much for using ‘Christmas Tree Farm’ to create such a fun spectacle.”

“I really love how you’ve chosen to give back by mentioning your local food bank,” she continued. “I’ve made a donation to Our Community Hunger Center in your hometown. Happy Holidays!”

Sarah tells Entertainment Tonight that when she saw Taylor’s message she “screamed and jumped up.”

“I immediately called everyone I know and posted the message on social media and the response has been incredible,” she says.
