Set out the menorah and turn up the Mariah Carey tunes—it’s the most wonderful time of the year. Over the next couple of months, 46 million turkeys will be consumed at Thanksgiving, 93% of Americans will celebrate Christmas—purchasing between 25-30 million Christmas trees in the process, and one in every 14 revelers will observe the festival of Hanukkah. That’s a lot of festivity.
Regardless of which holidays you choose to celebrate, it’s likely that you have a number of traditions that are an important part of the season. After all, it’s the observance of these traditions, whether adhered to as a larger society or as individual families, that sets these weeks apart from the rest of the mundane year.
In honor of the holiday season, Sunday Citizen compiled a list of celebrities’ favorite holiday traditions, using information taken from interviews, personal blogs, and social media posts. Some of them are more common—one celebrity loves making veganized Hanukkah treats, while others are a little more out there—like the country crooner who cooks up a big Italian feast on Christmas Eve. Regardless of where they fall on the scale, a peruse through these traditions is sure to leave you inspired to add something new to your own holiday rituals.
