Taylor Swift-inspired light display brings “Swiftmas” to Naperville

You won’t find much “blank space” at 1228 Atlas Lane, where the Scott family has decked out its home for the holidays in a Taylor Swift theme, bringing “Swiftmas” to Naperville.

Amy Scott told ABC 7 Chicago she came up with the idea after seeing Swift’s “Eras Tour” movie. The house is decked out with images of Taylor Swift, with Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce also making an appearance in the decorations. Neighbors are pitching in by passing out friendship bracelets in the spirit of Swift.
