When the holidays roll around, celebrities are just like us (believe it or not). They start decorating once November hits, holiday hits are playing around the house non-stop, and family traditions are passed down to their children.
If you're celeb-obsessed and curious about what those in the Hollywood hills are up to this holiday season (or maybe you're just looking for new family traditions to take on), take a look at what some of our favorite celebrities do once the jolliest time of year hits.
10 BLAKE LIVELY GOES ALL OUT ON THANKSGIVING
As popular as actors Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are, they like to keep their family life on the down-low. They don't post pictures of their children and wait months and months before releasing their child's name after they're born.
Come the holiday season, fans want to know what this private couple is up to on their downtime. And according to InStyle, Blake cooks a 12-course meal on Thanksgiving. With so much food to make, it's hard for her to pick a favorite but if she had to pick one, she says it would be "sweet potato casserole."
9 FAST FOOD IS A LATE NIGHT SNACK FOR CHRISSY AND JOHN
Unlike Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Chrissy and John don't hold back when it comes to their private lives. Now that their parents to two kids, Chrissy and John's lives seem even funnier. So what does this family of four do for Christmas?
According to Postmates, the pair goes to Kris Jenner's Christmas Eve party (more on this below) and then grab McDonald's as a late-night snack!
8 THE JONAS BROTHERS LIKE IT SPICY
The Jonas Brothers have been in the public eye since they were kids performing on the Disney Channel. And now that all three of them are married (with Kevin being the only one with children right now), their family traditions are expanding.
However, according to InStyle, Nick says the family eats tamales every Christmas morning. There's no real reason why but it's something their mother passed on to them.
7 JESSICA ALBA PERFORMS CHRISTMAS CARROLS!
Actress and businesswoman Jessica Alba can do anything she puts her mind to. As a mother to three kids and a wife, she tries her best to make the holidays a special place for the home. According to Alba, she has all her friends and family over for Thanksgiving, with her, her husband, and her dad making the best turkey legs.
And then for Christmas, she gets the kids and they go Chrismas caroling. "We love Christmas caroling with an improv version of '12 Days of Christmas' that’s always pretty epic," she said, according to Blasting News.
6 JENNIFER GARNER'S GRATITUDE TREE
Jennifer Garner is a true treasure. Thanks to Instagram, we get to see how adorable her #MomLife is with her three kiddos. To instill good morals in her kids, they have a "gratitude tree" alongside their Christmas tree.
While decorating the gratitude tree, members of the family write things they're thankful for before hanging them on the leaves. What's even cuter is that they add one thing they're grateful for every day in November, having a full tree by the end of the month.
5 CARRIE UNDERWOOD ORDERS BREAKFAST TO THE HOUSE
Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are also another private couple that we would love to see more of. While Carrie may be blaring her own Christmas songs through the speakers, on Christmas morning the family of four actually orders breakfast in so they can relax. With all the hustle and bustle that the holiday season brings, Christmas morning is one of those days she doesn't feel like cooking.
"It's such a hectic time, and I don't feel like making breakfast on a day that you're just making so much food anyway. So we order breakfast and leave a ginormous tip," she said, according to People.
4 BROOKLYN DECKER IS AN EARLY RISER
Actress Brooklyn Decker is incredibly raw on Instagram and fans can't get enough of her and her adorable life to former tennis player, Andy Roddick. With two kids at home, Brooklyn gets up at 3 a.m. to get prepared for the day.
US Magazine reports that she puts on all the Christmas lights and lets the kids open everything up because she wants it to be dark and cozy when they open their gifts. By the time 6 a.m. rolls around, everyone goes back to sleep.
3 JOANNA GAINES GOES SENTIMENTAL
Only one can imagine what Christmas morning is like for the Gaines' family. Both Chip and Joanna are so nostalgic and sentimental that their home has to be as beautiful as their traditions.
As she told Magnolia Journal, Joanna wakes up on Chrismas morning and starts baking her famous cinnamon rolls. As for gifts, she gets her family special ornaments and writes "their name and the date on the bottom, so as they get older, each one of them has a little collection that’s all their own."
2 KATE HUDSON LEAVES TREATS FOR SANTA AND HIS REINDEER
Kate Hudson always looks like she's having a great time. And now that she has three kids, the holidays just became even more fun!
"Every year, Santa comes and leaves presents for the kids out in the open. Sometimes Santa likes to wrap a couple of them but usually he leaves them open so the kids can see what they are," she said, according to Cafe Mom. She also notes that Santa leaves the adults gifts as well!
1 THE KARDASHIANS AND THEIR GLAMOROUS PARTIES
As anyone who follows the Kardashian-Jenners know, Kris Jenner typically throws an annual Christmas party every Christmas Eve. It's star-studded, lavish, and very expensive. It's catered and everyone goes all out for it.
What's even more adorable is that everyone's kids are invited and they all play together. "It's all our closest family and friends celebrating the holidays with a night of food, fu, and dancing," Kim told EOnline.
