How does one know when holidays are really here? It’s easy — all you have to do is pay attention to when celebrities start posting festive Instagrams, which, as everyone knows, is the universal signal for the start of the holidays. (Everyone does know this, right?)
This year, celebs have made it extra simple for us. Thanks to posts from Reese Witherspoon, Kylie Jenner, Justin Bieber, and Chrissy Teigen, there is absolutely no doubt that it is officially time for holiday cheer. Here’s how your favorite celebrities celebrated the holidays this year.
Kylie Jenner gave Stormi a miniature Lamborghini, decked out with — what else? — a genuine Louis Vuitton skin. She also posted an Insta Story of herself wearing matching PJs with BFFs Jordyn Woods and Stassi Karanikolaou.
