After Swifties the world over spent the early part of 2019 absolutely freaking out over cryptic clues and hints that they thought Swift was sharing via her social media regarding a new album, the fandom is at it once again.
This time, the theory seems to revolve around the idea that Swift is releasing a Christmas album just months after dropping her long-awaited album, Lover.
By scouring her tweets, Instagram posts and her various recent music videos, some die-hard (and extremely optimistic) fans have made it very clear that they not only think a Christmas album is coming, but that they really, really want it.
It seems the latest wave of theories was sparked when Swift returned from a trip to Japan and took to Instagram to share a selfie, which she captioned, "According to my jet lag it is one hundred o clock celsius."
The entire Swift Twitterverse went wild with equal parts random speculation and utter excitement.

To the credit of Swift's fans, the singer did, in fact, share a number of cryptic clues to Instagram leading up to the release of her first single, "ME!," in April. So anything is possible (although that doesn't mean it's probable).
