Move over, angels—Taylor Swift is the new nativity scene topper that fans have opted for this Christmas. 

Swifites have found yet another way for the “Anti-Hero” songstress to take over the world this year, and it involves turning their holiday decorations into an Eras Tour-inspired set. 

As her fans know all too well, Swift, 34, performs the folklore era of her tour from atop a moss-covered structure, a set prop that has now been affectionately dubbed “the folklore cabin.” 

Now, fans on TikTok are going viral for their updated nativity scene decorations, featuring a mini cardboard cutout of the singer sitting on top of the stable that houses figurines of Joseph, Mary, baby Jesus and all the other nativity scene usuals. 

One viral clip, which now has over 500,000 views, shows the singer wearing her ethereal green folklore dress while her song “the 1” plays in the background to match the song Swift normally performs from the top of the cabin. 


The comments on the post were absolutely loving the idea, with tons of users now feeling inspired to plot their own takeovers of their household nativity sets.

“✨Tay on the hay✨,” one commenter cleverly added under the video, while someone else quipped, “Away in the Manager (Taylor’s Version).” 

“And so we’ve brought the folklore cabin to Bethlehem,” another comment read, mimicking what Swift says when she brings the folklore cabin across different cities for the Eras Tour. 

“I’m cackling! I need a nativity set just for this now,” someone else gushed. 

Some fans were missing a nativity scene appearance from Swift’s boyfriend Travis Kelce, after one fan “but where’s uncle Travy??”

The video creator happily answered the request in another clip, this time featuring the guy on the Chiefs as one of the three wisemen.
