    Taylor Swift loves the holiday season, and not just because it's fun, festive and everyones favorite time of year. She loves it because of how she was raised.

    "I really love the holiday season because I grew up on a Christmas tree farm, and it just reminds me of home and the coziness of it all," Swift told Parade in her cover story.

    She continued, "I love when it gets cold and you start wearing sweaters and coats and scarves, and you start baking things with cinnamon and nutmeg in them. To me those are the smells of Christmas."

    Mmm, cozy, like cloud cottage or the froth on a chai.

    Swift is no joke when it comes to baking and making sweet treats. "I make raspberry jam," she said. "When I was younger we had a grape arbor, and my mom would go out and pick grapes and make grape jam in the sink - boil it, put it in jars, and give it away as gifts. So I started making raspberry jam, and it is so good. You can put it on anything; you can dip pretzels into it. I don't mean to brag, but it's so good you could just eat it with a spoon."

    Mmm. Delish!

    Would you eat Taylor Swift's homemade raspberry jam?
