Holiday Barbie Dolls Are A Beautiful Gift Tradition

Holiday Barbie 2023Every year Mattel makes a new Holiday Barbie doll.  For decades, I have purchased the new dolls for my own Barbie collection.  It has become part of our holiday tradition.

Each year, I look forward to the annual release of the new Holiday Barbie doll.  I am always excited to see her holiday dress for the current season.  Barbie truly has the most beautiful clothes, especially for Christmas!

For years, we purchased the new Holiday Barbie for our daughter.  I remember a few years when finding the Holiday Barbie was not an easy task.  Now, with online stores, you can almost insure getting one of these sought after dolls, as long as you begin your search before Christmas Eve.

2013 Holiday Barbie

The 2013 Holiday Barbie is dressed all in white with snowflake accents.  I have heard that most often the contestant dressed in white is the one crowned each year in the Miss. America pageant.  Even through I have seen that very thing happen, I am not yet sure if that is a myth or true that the white somehow denotes the winner in advance.   But, I do know this, Barbie is a beautiful choice to give for Christmas.

A Barbie for Everyone

One of the things I love the most about the Holiday Barbies is that they make one for blondes, brunettes, redhead as well as the raven hair beauties.  Everyone has a particular favorite, usually it is the doll that has their own hair color.  No matter which you prefer, either of the hair colors are equally beautiful!
