Lady GaGa is getting in the festive spirit by decorating a Christmas tree for the first time for six years.

The pop superstar has been busy putting baubles and decorations on her tree and admits she had forgotten how much she enjoyed the Yule Tide tradition.

Writing on her Twitter account, she revealed: ''I'm decorating a Christmas Tree myself for the first time in 6 years, so happy. we should never take it for granted the joy it brings!''

Gaga is due to spend Christmas in her native New York with her family, her long-term boyfriend Taylor Kinney and her pet French bulldog Asia.

In the build-up to the holiday season, the 'Applause' singer has already been spoiling her beloved mutt by treating the pooch to a French manicure.

She posted on Twitter: ''A French manicure for my baby frenchie! She loves all the compliments pretty girl! (sic)''

Gaga is looking forward to a well-earned break over the Christmas holiday following the conclusion of her mammoth 'ArtRave: The Artpop Ball' world tour.

To celebrate the end of the tour - which finished in Paris, France, on November 24 - the 28-year-old musician threw a party at a bowling alley in Manchester, Northern England.
