From quiet nights at home to raging parties, the last few days of the year had it all for these stars.
The holidays have come and gone, and we’re off to start a new year. But let’s rewind a bit and see how some celebrities celebrated the festive season.
Of Home and Christmas Trees
Many of our favorite celebrities opted to settle in at home and enjoy the holidays with their loved ones.
Stars like Olivia Rodrigo, Ariana and Frankie Grande, Lily Collins, Chrissy Teigen, Salma Hayek, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennie Kim posed in front of Christmas trees and shared the photos on social media.
Fun and Cheer
The holidays are also the perfect chance to spend time with loved ones doing fun activities. Paris Hilton took her baby on his very first Disneyland trip, which she described as a “dream come true” on Instagram.
“Watching his excitement and awe at every new sight and sound, it’s clear why this place is known as the happiest on Earth. These precious moments of pure joy and wonder will stay in my heart forever,” she continued in her caption.
On Christmas day, People reported that Taylor Swift was with her family at the Chiefs game. She cheered on Travis Kelce while wearing a Santa hat embroidered with Kelce’s number, 87. Her brother, Austin Swift, even dressed up as Santa Claus and gave the football player a present.
Later, Kelce talked about that day on the podcast he shares with his brother, New Heights. “He actually made me feel like a child because his gift to me was straight out of the bag,” Kelce said, talking about Austin Swift. “And [he] handed me a VHS of my favorite football movie of all time, Little Giants.”
Ringing In The New Year
Celebrities, singers in particular, were busy performing for their fans while counting down to the New Year.
At New York City’s Times Square, artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Tyla, Sabrina Carpenter, LL Cool J, and Paul Anka sang fan favorites as the crowd waited for the iconic ball to drop.
Meanwhile in Miami, Nicki Minaj got the New Year’s party started at the nightclub E11EVEN. “You made it. You got through 2023 even when you didn’t think you had it in you. Look at you being the best you you’ve ever been! Go easy on yourself. This is only the beginning. It’s ok. You can breathe. 2024 is your time,” the rapper wrote on Instagram.
Christina Aguilera also took to social media to thank her fans for supporting her, as she kicked off her Las Vegas residency on December 30 and 31.
“Tonight marks the beginning of a new chapter. I couldn’t think of a better way to bid farewell to this incredible year than to spend this night in LAS VEGAS with all of you, surrounded by your energy and enthusiasm. Cheers to the magical moments we’ll create, the music that will fill our hearts, and the endless possibilities that lie ahead,” she wrote.
