Taylor Swift casually dropped in to one of her fans homes this Christmas which actually isn’t that unusual for the pop star.

But this fan is a little different than your average Swiftie.

Cyrus Porter is 96 years old and was just profiled by his local TV news station in New Madrid, Missouri, for his Taylor Swift fandom that’s how well-known he is for loving Swift and her music. Porter is also a World War II vet, which apparently doesn’t stop him from rocking out to a sick beat. He’s even been to two Swift concerts. As he told the news station, “She puts on a show no one else puts on.”

A few days after the story about his undying Swift devotion, he got more than he could ever hope with a personal visit from the singer herself who is known for surprising fans with gifts, notes, wedding appearances and more.

Swift popped by Porter’s Christmas celebration with his extended family. She talked with the beyond-surprised family members, looked at war memorabilia with Porter, took tons of photos and even sang an acoustic living room rendition of her hit tune, “Shake it Off.” Of course the family sang and danced along. Including Porter and an absolutely ecstatic little girl with a purple bow.

Plenty of pictures, videos and tweets were posted online by family members some of whom were crying tears of joy to see Swift in their home.

Porter’s grandkids Robert Frye, Chris Porter and others (it looks like a lot of extended family made a solid showing) posted an endless supply of photos of the visit.

When she wasn’t surprising an entire family beyond oblivion, it looks like Swift spent Christmas Eve with her childhood best friend, Abigail Anderson, based on the Instagram shots in front of the Christmas tree.

Christmas is all around us
