Because have you really celebrated Christmas if it's not on Instagram?
Ah Christmas, is there a better time to fill your Instagram feed with truly like-worthy content? Between all the Christmas trees, Christmas wreaths and best Christmas markets, every moment is an Instagrammable moment. And nobody knows this or does this better than the A-list, which is why we've round up the best celebrity christmas Instagram posts floating through our feeds.
If you've ever wondered who in Tinsel Town has the biggest baubles (Kris Jenner FYI) or decks the halls of their mega mansions with the most fairy lights, then now is the time to find out.
Some stars love the festive season so much they've even taken to dressing as Christmas over the years, and we aren't just talking about Colin Firth in another dodgy Christmas jumper here. Between Taylor Swift giving Olaf a serious run for his money as the world's cutest snowman, Cheryl joining Rudolph and co and Rita Ora dressing as an actual Christmas tree (serious credit owed there), it's clear the festive season is a favourite amongst the stars.
Of course, Christmas isn't all about the decorations and dressing to impress (though we think it's safe to say the above have nailed that). Many of our favourite celebrities also take to Instagram to give us a glimpse into how they're spending the day. From Jennifer Lopez sharing the cutest snap of her twins Emme and Max getting ready to party, David Beckham showing that Olive the pooch doesn't need a Christmas cocktail to feel the festive spirit and Victoria Beckham uploading a heartwarming handmade Christmas card from Harper, it's clear the A-list love a fun filled family day just as much as the rest of us.
Even the Royals have been getting in on the action this year, though we already have all the proof we need that Queen Liz is cool AF so we can't say we're too surprised. Yes, thanks to Instagram we now know exactly how Buckingham Palace is kitted out for the holiday season, and we have to say we really, really want those baubles.
Take a look for yourself to see the best celebrity Christmas Instagram posts from over the years.
