On the JJ Barnes Blog, I check out research into the pop culture influences on Christmas trends, and wonder whether you’re having a Barbie inspired Christmas?
Christmas fashions are always a curious thing. Celebrities, movies, and fashions all impact the choices we make for our festive decor, and while my Christmas is mostly built around hand made decorations and far too much Baileys, I am fascinated by what inspires the trendy and stylish amongst us to make their choices. Maybe I’m missing out on something super fun, like a Barbie inspired Christmas?
To help me find inspiration, the experts at Unifury analyzed Pinterest Trends data and sent over their findings of the Christmas trends for 2023. From the resurgence of nostalgic traditions to pop culture influences, this year’s festivities promise to be filled with creativity and style, from Christmas decorations to Christmas gifts.

I absolutely ADORE Taylor Swift. She speaks to my soul. So representing that love at Christmas time with some Taylor Swift Christmas Decorations while listening to Christmas Tree Farm feels like it would suit me very well.
