They may have more pricey presents under the tree and go to much more extravagant holiday parties, but during the most wonderful time of the year, celebrities and their families honor annual holiday traditions just like we do — and many of them are likely the same, or similar to, certain activities you enjoy doing with your family every year for Christmas, Hanukkah, and other wintertime holidays.
You may like to sing carols or show tunes like Reese Witherspoon and Gabrielle Union-Wade; perhaps you love lighting the menorah and playing dreidel like Andy Cohen and Alicia Silverstone; you might enjoy creating a delicious meal in the kitchen like Anthony Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow, or you may look forward to Santa-related traditions that make the holidays all the more magical like the Hudson–Hawn–Russell family. Or, maybe you like to mix it up like Chrissy Teigen by ordering fast food on Christmas Day instead of having an elaborate, time-consuming meal — because why not deck the halls with McDonald’s? Fa la lala la la, with a fry on top!
Ahead, we’re sharing our favorite celebrities’ family traditions during the holidays — if you’re not in the holiday spirit yet, you just might be after reading this.
