Christmas is the perfect time to spend with loved ones, and most celebrities were sure to do just that this year. Jessica Alba, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Jennifer Lopez were amongst the celebrities to share photos during their time of togetherness.

Entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey took time out of her busy schedule to hang out at her home in Maui with longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham, her best friend Gayle King, and King’s two older children Kirby and William. Prior to Hawaii, Oprah visited her all-girls leadership academy in South Africa which she founded in 2007, before heading to Paris for a short adventure.[[nid:1520498]]

Actress Jaime King spent time with fellow beauty Jessica Alba, who is the Godmother of her newborn son James Knight. The two snapped cute photos together as Albas father dress as Santa Claus, while her brother Joshua is dressed as a pink bunny. King made sure to don a Santa hat and festive red dress. Alba’s husband Cash Warren, and two children Haven and Honor, were also a part of the festivities.


Meanwhile, father Nick Cannon was the life of the party, dressing as Santa Claus while posing with his two twin children, Monroe and Morrocan.An adorable black-and-white photo shows Cannon holding his daughter while his son rests peacefully in his arms. Cannon and wife Mariah Carey spent their Christmas together in Aspen, Colorado.



Selena Gomez, who recently cancelled the Australian and Asian legs of her Stars Dance tour due to needing personal time, went back home to help cook Christmas dinner and spend time with her six-month-old half-sister Gracie Elliot Teefey  Last week, LiveNation released a statement from Selena last week:

“My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be. To my fans, I sincerely apologize and I hope you guys know how much each and every one of you mean to me.” Family time may be exactly what she needs to get back on her feet.



After revealing that she is happier than she has been in a while, after her engagement to Liam Hemsworth ended, Miley Cyrus spent Christmas with her family and her cute dogs, and made sure to share photos. Of course, the latest wild child could not keep things totally PG on the holidays, and tweeted the following message to her followers, 'merry christmas. I hope it's filled with love & Mary Jane like mine [sic].” Mary Jane is a term used for marijuana. Additionally, Cyrus posted a family photo of everyone jokingly beating one another up while her grandmother laughed and pulled her hair. Just another day in Cyrus' world.


While she is known to be a diva, Jennifer Lopez ditched her pop star status (and her make-up!) to have a down-to-earth Christmas celebration with her family and boyfriend Casper Smart. The 41-year-old showed off a picture of her and her family wearing pajamas while making pastels, a traditional dish in several Latin American countries. Her photo caption simply said, “Authentic #lanavidaboricua making #pasteles #christmaseve #nochebuena @beaucaspersmart @trios22 @drios818 @tdrios215.”[[nid:1520500]]
