When it comes to celebrating the holidays, celebrities are just like us. They put up a Christmas tree, buy each other gifts, and spend time with their families … but that’s where the similarities end.
Some stars decorate their homes with unusual and extravagant decor, buy each other wildly expensive gifts, and plan lavish vacations.
Take a look at how some of the biggest stars celebrate their Christmases.
The Kardashian-Jenner family is known for their famous Christmas Eve parties. Their celebration in 2018 cost an estimated $1.3 million.
In 2018, the famous Christmas Eve party moved from Kris Jenner’s house to Kim and Kanye’s mansion. For the event, the house was transformed into a winter wonderland with fake snow and a $35,000 snow hill for sledding, according to People. There was also a tunnel made of 10,000 lights for selfies.
Inside, the house was completely redesigned to look like a minimalistic Whoville with fluffy clouds hanging from the ceiling.
This year, the party is off due to increasing cases of COVID-19, Khloe Kardashian confirmed on Twitter earlier this month.
In 2019, Kourtney Kardashian hosted the famous party, which included a performance from Sia. It cost an estimated $440,000.
Although Kourtney’s party was less expensive and elaborate than the year before, it still had extravagance. For example, Kourtney lined the entranceway with poinsettias that cost $12,000, according to People.
“When Kourt throws a party, we glam up,” Khloé wrote on Instagram. “Merry Christmas and abundant blessings from my sister squad and I.”
This year, Kim Kardashian decorated her home in all-white, minimalistic decor that was similar to her Christmas party two years ago
This year, Kardashian took to her Instagram stories to show off her home’s hallway, which was lined with white trees made of plush fabric that cost $10,000 each, according to People. Her living room also had a large tree that was frosted with fake snow.
“If you didn’t think I would bring back Whoville in the house,” the reality star and business owner said in the Instagram story.

Celebrities also celebrate the holiday by buying each other extravagant gifts, like when Nick Jonas gifted Priyanka Chopra a snowmobile
In 2019, Jonas bought his new wife Chopra an extravagant snowmobile, and the pair showed it off on Instagram.
