‘Tis the season to be… competitive? A source close to the Kardashian family has revealed exclusively to In Touch that Kylie Jenner and her big sis Kim Kardashian are feuding over who can pull off the most over-the-top Christmas decor.

As it stands, Kylie is in the lead! The source noted that while Kim got a “real, 19-foot tree,” Kylie “purposely” one-upped her older sibling with “a bigger tree.” The 21-year-old’s tree is “an all fake, all gold” masterpiece and stands tall at a whopping 22 feet.  

“Kylie is making sure Kim knows who’s the bigger star!” the source added. Sounds a wee-bit petty, if you ask us. Then again, can we really be surprised? After all, the tension between the Kardashian family surrounding this year’s holiday season has been building for quite some time now.

From lingering issues between Kim and  Kourtney Kardashian to ongoing awkwardness between the entire family and Khloé Kardashian‘s once-cheating NBA star boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, there’s more than enough drama to go around. “It’s shaping up to be a hellish holiday season,” an insider recently revealed to Life & Style magazine. “There’s a huge family divide with everyone taking sides.”

Last year, Kim and Kourtney famously fought just before the family’s annual holiday card photo shoot. (Kim rudely branded Kourt the “least exciting [sister] to look at” in a move that shocked fans when the KUWTK episode dropped earlier this year.) Now, it’s getting even worse.

“Kourtney started questioning Kim’s taste and said she didn’t want the family looking like Christmas strippers,” revealed the insider. “Kim lost it. Then Kourtney said she wasn’t the only one who felt this way and threw [little sister] Kendall [Jenner] under the bus, too, saying she agreed with her.” Added the insider, “If they put a card out, it will be a miracle.”

The Kardashians will, of course, take to social media to make it appear they’re having the best holiday ever. “But that’s the furthest thing from the truth,” warned the insider. “This family has some major issues. Christmas is a huge mess.”
