A detailed history of Taylor Swift’s annual 4th of July parties
The Fourth of July is one of Taylor Swift’s favorite holidays. How do I know this? Because she said so in a blog post in 2013.
Taylor loves this holiday SO MUCH she hosts July 4th parties every year at her Rhode Island mansion. She’s actually been hosting them for the past four years and they are literally the same and completely different every single year. It’s cray.

This is pre-Instagram and Taylor posts the photos on her BLOG!
Tay and co. play with sparklers.
The entire guest list are dancers and musicians from her Red tour.
Which explains why we don’t recognize anyone from this squad.

They ride on slip and slides.
When the 4th of July gives you nonstop rain, make a giant slip n slide.

When Ed shows up in a red coat for the 4th of July because he just can't let it go. @teddysphotos

The squad is roughly the same as last year (Gigi, Cara, Karlie, Haim etc).
