The Kardashians

Newly single Kim Kardashian dished to E!, “We all get together and have the same Christmas Eve party we’ve had since we were kids.” Sister Kourtney elaborated on the party to OK! Magazine, saying that friends and family come for a big turkey dinner, where there are carolers, elves, and even a Santa. The entire family then slips into matching themed pajamas and spends the night at Kris and Bruce Jenner’s house.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth’s mom, Blythe Danner, told PopEater.com that cooking is key to their Christmas celebrations, adding, “My daughter is a great cook. She cooked five ducks for my birthday two years ago, so who knows what delicious food she’ll have in store for Christmas.”

Mariah Carey

Since 1997, the Grammy award-winning singer has high-tailed it every year to Aspen, Colorado for the holidays—except last year, when she was five months’ pregnant with twins Monroe and Moroccan. No word yet if Mariah is returning to her traditional Yuletide spot with kids and husband Nick Cannon in tow, but we’re betting she makes it to the popular celeb destination.

Brooke Burke and David Charvet

Like many, this Hollywood couple celebrates a hybrid of Hanukkah and Christmas. With David growing up in a Jewish household and Brooke accustomed to a hodgepodge of holiday celebrations, the couple blends customs of decorating the tree with lighting the menorah. Brooke remarked about her family’s holiday traditions on CelebrityBabyScoop.com, “Hanukkah’s more intimate. We light the candles [and] say the prayer.” David adds that Christmas is a larger, more inclusive celebration, saying, “We try to fit everybody in. Both holidays are about being able to spend time together.”

Jennifer Love Hewitt

For Jennifer, the holidays are all about giving back. Last year, the Ghost Whisperer actress joined fellow actors Zachary Levi, BooBoo Stewart, and Alyssa Milano in serving hot meals to the less fortunate at The Los Angeles Mission. Jennifer told JustJared.Buzznet.com, “There are so many hurting people on the streets of our city, but when I’m here I get to see the smiles of the children and the great food for everyone. I come to give something back, but invariably I get more blessing than I give.”

Justin Bieber

How does the biggest teen heartthrob on the planet celebrate the holidays? In past years, Justin Bieber flew home to spend Christmas at his grandparents’ house in Canada. “They cook dinner….and I just hang out with all my cousins and everything,” he told reporters backstage at a concert in Chicago. But this year, we wouldn’t be surprised if the 17-year-old pop sensation brings a plus one—his girlfriend of a year, Selena Gomez.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

The jet-setting couple and their brood traveled to Namibia last year, soon after Angelina told Ryan Seacrest, “We’re going to travel with the kids and go to a random part of the world …I’ve got it all boxed and ready to go.” While no travel plans have yet to be confirmed, people are speculating that the Jolie-Pitt clan will again hit up an exotic locale this Christmas.
