Christmas 2012 is here! So, how are the stars celebrating this year? Will it be a lavish all the family party, or just a day in bed unwrapping gifts and watching Home Alone? Most of these celebrities have made plans to be around friends and family for the holidays, and are making sure it’s an extra special event for their kids too. From baking mince pies to waking up at 6am to see what’s under the Christmas tree, these 6 stars are all set to enjoy a very fun festive season. Many are heading back home to be with their parents for the holidays while others will be spending it with their own young kids taking part in their own traditions.
Keira is now engaged to Klaxons frontman James Righton, so she’s torn over where to spend Christmas – with her own family or his: “It’s no longer ‘I’ but that big old ‘we’… I have no idea (where to spend Christmas); it’s a massive question. My family was just four and very simple. Now all of a sudden it’s breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go.”
Matt’s family have mixed traditions which means two days of present opening which his children love: “We have this weird fusion for Christmas, but I think it just means more gifts for the kids, so they’re into it. I’m just going to hang out with my kids, we’ve been on the Promised Land train a little bit for the last week or so, and we’re looking forward to just settling down.”
Spice Girls singer Mel will spend Christmas with her 3-year-old daughter Scarlett: ”Having a little one around I don’t want to get too drunk, but I’ll have a Christmas Spice Girls night out. We’ll go to someone’s house and buy for each other’s children. I’m going to be in London with my family and Scarlett. My mum’s doing the cooking and Scarlett and I will make mince pies with Christmas music playing in the background.”
Nicole plans to spend the holidays in Hawaii with boyfriend Lewis and her whole family: ‘Oh, that’s going to be fun. I totally forgot about that. I’m going to be with my whole family there. In Hawaii, our Santa Claus wears surf shorts, it’s so much fun. I spent one Christmas Eve travelling back from a tour in Europe to get back to my family in Kentucky, and I got stuck in the airport. It was devastating!”
Rob will be at his family home surrounded by the entire Kardashian clan: ‘Christmas is home, so everyone will be home and we’ll all hang out together. My mom has a really big Christmas party every year on Christmas Eve, We all sleep over at the house, and on Christmas morning we wake up at like 6 a.m. and do presents. They all make breakfast, all the girls. We watch basketball. It’s a family day.”
