‘Tis the season for all things red and green, or if you’re a Georgia football fan, all things red and black.

Just because it’s Christmastime doesn’t mean UGA fans ditch their team spirit. In fact, repping the Dawgs during Christmas earns you a guaranteed spot on the Nice List. Santa is a secret Georgia fan after all…not that he was fooling anyone with that red suit and those black boots.

Christmas is the perfect time to spread love, hope, and good cheer. And for Georgia fans, what better way to do that than not only continuing to support your team during the busy holiday season but also flaunting a few new national championship-themed decorations?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year to deck the halls with any and everything Georgia-themed. And as always, Dawg fans are an elite bunch when it comes to showing off their holiday team spirit. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of hot chocolate in your national championship mug, and see how these UGA fans celebrate Christmas Dawg style.

Georgia football fans know how to decorate for the holidays.

While many Georgia fans sport a red Christmas tree, my family opted for a black tree with red lights which I absolutely love. But this frosted Christmas tree is fun too and is giving off major silver britches vibes.

Regardless of the color of your tree, national championship ornaments are a necessity this year. And if you want to throw in a Jalen Carter SEC Championship ornament like my mom…well that’s just elite right there.

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a classic national championship logo!

And a giant Hairy Dawg nutcracker couldn’t hurt, either. *Sugar Plum Fairy not included.*

While you’re making a list (and checking it twice) of how to celebrate Christmas with a UGA twist, be sure to include these shiny Georgia presents under the tree.

And if the traditional Christmas carols aren’t helping you have a merry little Christmas, try mixing it up and swapping the classic lyrics out for something a little more festive and Dawg-themed.

Whether you want to kick it off old school with White Christmas…

Add some humor with Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer…

Or belt out a tune like Mariah Carey…

The possibilities for Dawg-themed Christmas Carols are endless. After all, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear. What better way to make sure your family and friends know you’re in the Christmas spirit than singing about your love for the Dawgs to a Christmas tune?

But the party doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Just like the lights in Sanford, Dawg nation is lighting up their homes red and black for the holidays. From red lights on the house to light-up Power G’s in the yard, Georgia fans live by the mantra “Go big or go home.” But no one has done that better this year than Allyson and Tyler Beaucamp.

The couple’s home in Braselton, Georgia, has been all over social media the last few days for its UGA-themed light show that features the beloved and iconic pick-six by Kelee Ringo that sealed Georgia’s victory over the Crimson Tide.

While Tyler became a Georgia fan when the couple started dating eight years ago, Allyson said, “My dad raised me right as a lifelong UGA fan, and my mom graduated from the University of Georgia.” Although the couple featured the Braves’ World Series win in their light show last year, Allyson’s devotion and love for the Dawgs made this year extra special as they were able to highlight what she said was an “epic win for the Dawgs and every UGA fan!” After such an amazing season, the Beaucamp’s knew Georgia “conquering the Crimson Tide” had to be in this year’s light show.

But doing so was no easy feat. While this is the Beaucamp’s third year hosting their Christmas light show, they continue to expand, adding a thousand and more lights each year. Allyson also said that while her husband starts putting the lights up on October 1st, it takes until Thanksgiving for them to be all set up and the show ready to go for the holidays. That’s the definition of commitment to your team and the Christmas spirit. How do you celebrate Christmas Dawg style??

Some might call it fanatical or crazy, but for Georgia fans combining our love for the Dawgs and Christmas is what we call being elite. It just means more down here in the SEC and Georgia fans continue to set the standard for how fans can show their team spirit even during the most magical time of year.

If you loved the Beaucamp’s UGA light show and are as obsessed as Christmas with lights as I am, be sure to check out their full light show here.
