Celebrities often seem like they have it all: fancy cars, closets overflowing with designer duds and invitations to Hollywood’s hottest parties, but during the holidays they’re like everyone else, savoring time with their families and enjoying Christmas festivities. From diva Christina Aguilera — who escaped Los Angeles for a decidedly cooler holiday in Colorado — to actress Zoe Saldana’s special Christmas gift and J.Lo’s family reunion, here’s a look at how some of our favorite A-list celebrities celebrated that special time of year.
Christina Aguilera knows what’s important this time of year — family — and escaped the Hollywood spotlight with a trip out to Colorado with son Max in tow. The “Your Body” singer tweeted an oh-so-cute picture of she and her four-year-old son in front of horses and a sleigh, making her holidays completely picture-perfect.

Eva Longoria is known for her red-carpet ready gowns and jam-packed schedule, but the Tejana actress slowed down to savor the holidays with her family. Longoria, who traveled to Texas for Christmas, tweeted about shopping and enjoying family time, even posting pictures featuring she and the rest of the Longoria clan during the holidays.
Wilmer Valderrama is just like the rest of us, indulging in his favorite foods during Christmas. The “Voto Latino” activist tweeted about enjoying Venezuelan specialities like roast pork, rice and tamales. Hey Wilmer – any leftovers?
Zoe Saldana spent some quality time with a new love over the holidays, but it’s not who you think: the 34-year-old adopted a rescue puppy just in time for Christmas. The new addition – named Mugsy – was introduced to the world by the “Avatar” actress via Twitter and seems to have fit right in as the family snapped a holiday picture under the tree.
Jennifer Lopez flew around the world as part of her “Dance Again” concert tour, but the Bronx-bred diva made it home just in time for Christmas. And it looks like Jenny from the block shares her good looks her family, as evident by the stunning photo she shared of she, her sister Lynda and several female cousins posing.
