LOS ANGELES (FOX News) - Stars certainly know how to set a scene, and that goes for Christmas too!
Steve Carell who stars in the new film Welcome to Marwen explains his family traditions during Christmas, “The kids are a little bit older now but we still go through the motions in terms of cookies for Santa and the carrots for the reindeer and we still do it because they prompt it. They’re like what about the reindeer Dad?” actress and singer LeAnn Rimes recalls, “They were 2 and 6 (her step children) when I first met them and one of our first Christmases together I left trails of candy canes from their door all the way to the Christmas tree and I do it still.”
Group activities are always a big go-to when bringing the family together. Country music star Martina McBride describes how she brings her family together, “Everybody will be under, together, under one roof and we’ll cook and do puzzles and play games and sit by the fire.” singer Shania Twain takes pride in her decorations exclaiming that, “I don’t let anyone else do the lights, because they never balance them out (laughs), once we’re almost done everybody else can join in; we like to cook together and we love to play games old fashioned style.”
Movie watching also makes the cut for holiday traditions as actress Ella Hunt explains what she enjoys, “I look forward to watching “The Family Stone” with my dad each year it’s his favorite Christmas film.”
And as always all are just happy to get in quality family time. Country singer Garth Brooks make his Christmas wish for the holidays explaining how, “Getting everybody in one place at one time is impossible, that’s the Christmas gift I ask for.”
A break from working gets Benedict Cumberbatch in the holiday spirit, he says, “I like to be with family and friends eating and drinking and just not working that’s very nice.”
Whatever festivities you put center stage, have a very happy holiday season!
