For the Scott family of Naperville, IL, this year will be a very merry Swiftmas!
The Scott family has always gone big with their holiday light display. This year, the “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” movie inspired them to put a different spin on things! When you take a closer look, you will find album covers, friendship bracelets (Hope!), Travis Kelce on the roof, and a variety of “easter eggs” that only true Swifties will understand. Amy Scott is emphatic that this is truly a whole family effort. As soon as Hope students Rebecca and Emily pulled into the driveway for Thanksgiving break, they were up on ladders installing giant friendship bracelets around trees in their yard.
Rebecca, a freshman, and Emily, a senior, both run for Hope on the cross country and track teams. This year has been a meaningful one for the Scott sisters! Up until this year, Emily frequently traveled home to see her sister, who was grappling with frustrating health challenges. The two sisters have always been a major support system for each other, and Emily was a big part of the reason why Rebecca ultimately chose Hope last spring. While they both stay busy with friends, athletics, and academics (Emily will be student teaching this spring!), they have established a tradition of “Sister Sunday.” Every Sunday, they intentionally meet for dinner or Captain Sundae. Amy was quick to offer to “sponsor” this weekly tradition, loving that her daughters were prioritizing time with each other.
While the entire Scott family is looking forward to a break from school and a series of peaceful days together, you can be certain that their holiday lights will continue to draw carloads of Swifties. In the words of Amy (and, ahem, someone else we know…), “We’ll leave the Christmas lights up till January.”
