Be it Christmas, Channukah, Kwanza, Festivus, Winter Solstice or "just because," every mom has an annual tradition or two with their kids this time of year -- and Hollywood moms are no different!
From a standing appointment with the Rockettes to some serious time in the kitchen, Us Weekly rounds up what just a few celebs have been up with their families this holiday season.
For Naomi Watts and partner Liev Schreiber, "We get as much family together as possible -- grannies and uncles and everybody," the Diana actress, 44, told Us recently. The parents to sons Sasha, 5, and Kai, 4, are also starting new traditions at home. "They're getting into the whole Santa Claus thing now," Watts says. "So we've got the Elf on a Shelf!"
Anne Heche puts her sons Atlas, 3, and Homer, 10, matching pajamas! "It's so cute," the actress, 43, gushes of her little guys with current partner James Tupper and ex-husband Coley Laffoon.
It's baking season for newly single Jennie Garth and Luca, 15, Lola, 10, and Fiona, 6, her daughters with estranged husband Peter Facinelli. "We make cookies for their teachers," the Little Bit Country star tells Us.
Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa Gorga, meanwhile, crosses the George Washington Bridge with Antonia, 7, Gino, 5, and Joey, 2, her kids with hubby Joe, for some yuletide entertainment in NYC. "We see the Radio City Christmas show," the Bravo star, 33, says.
Switched at Birth actress Constance Marie and yoga instructor hubby Kent Katich, meanwhile, make it fun for their daughter Luna, 3: Leaving a candy trail from the chimney to the Christmas tree "to show where Santa was!" Marie, 47, explains.
