For The Real Housewives of Orange County star, the best part of the holidays is having daughters Sophie, 21, Stella and Adaline, both 18, back home in California for Christmas Day.
"All my girls are in college right now for the first time," Shannon told E!, "so I have three girls coming home. I'm super excited about that."
Teresa Giudice & Luis "Louie" Ruelas
She and husband Luis “Louie” Ruelas will reunite with her ex Joe Guidice this holiday season.
"We're gonna spend it with Joe in the Bahamas," The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed to E!. "We told the kids and they were so excited."
Joe—who was deported from the United States in 2019 after serving nearly three years in federal prison for fraud—is even introducing Teresa to the new lady in his life and inviting her costar Jennifer Aydin's family along for the festivities.
"We're gonna meet his girlfriend," Teresa added, "and the Aydins are coming also and their kids."
Tamra & Eddie Judge
The Real Housewives of Orange County couple is also heading away for Christmas—but not too far.
"We recently bought a house in Big Bear, so we’re going to be spending the holidays in Big Bear," Tamra told E!. "Our little happy place, a little escape from reality TV and L.A. and Orange County. We’re like mountain people with flannels on and sweats and boots and just living the good life."
And, yes, husband Eddie Judge helps with the holiday traditions. And she noted, "We cook together, we do everything together."
Despite Kyle and Mauricio Umansky's ongoing separation, they will be celebrating the holidays as a family in Aspen with their daughters Farrah, 34, Alexia, 27, Sophia, 23, and Portia, 15.
When it comes to the holidays, only one thing matters to The Real Housewives of Orange County alum: Family.
"We usually do matching pajamas with them," Vicki said of kids Michael Wolfsmith, 38, and Brianna Culberson, 36. "They don't want to wear them anymore. But Christmas Eve, always Christmas service at midnight. And then family Christmas Day."
Surprisingly, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star and husband Seth Marks are escaping Utah's snowy weather for a warmer climate this year.
"We’ve been living in Miami for a few months," she revealed to E!, "so we’re staying there through the end of the year."
Nearly one year after her brother Conner's sudden death, the Southern Charm star admitted that now the "holidays are definitely difficult."
"We're a very tight-knit, close family so we're pulling through and holding tight," the reality star shared. "We'll get through it."
Despite Conner's absence, Olivia will still try to embrace her favorite Christmas traditions with her mom and dad.
"My favorite part is just family time and the movies of course," the 31-year-old noted. "Home Alone, that's the favorite. I'm just looking forward to being in Texas, that's where I am right now, and family time."
Larsa Pippen & Marcus Jordan
The Real Housewives of Miami star and her boyfriend will be celebrating two special occasions this Christmas.
"Marcus’ birthday is Dec. 24th, so we’ll be in L.A. for his birthday," Larsa told E!. "We’ll be in L.A. for Christmas with my kids, and then, for New Years, we’ll be in Miami."
Emily embraces Christmas traditions with her and husband Shane Simpson's daughter Annabelle, 10 , and twins Luke and Keller, 8.
"I have little kids, so they like the Christmas tree up and they love that damn Elf on the Shelf," The Real Housewives of Orange County star revealed. "We have to do that every day. Then I make the mistake of when you do something creative with Elf on the Shelf, then you set yourself up to do it every freaking time."
Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker
"For Christmas, we're thinking about going out of town," the singer shared with E!. "We want to get a little vacation in before the New Year gets started."
"This coming year is going to be a big year for our family," The Real Housewives of Atlanta star added. "Todd and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary. My daughter Riley will be graduating from college. So, it's a big year for our family."
Paige DeSorbo & Craig Conover
If Craig knows what's good for him, he'll leave Charleston behind and celebrate Christmas with his girlfriend of two years in New York.
"I have a big Italian family," Paige told E!, "so if I went anywhere other than their house, I would be exiled. With my family for sure."
But does the Summer House star lend a hand when it comes to making their impressive holiday feast?
"I do the eating," she cracked. "My mom takes care of all the cooking. She always asks for help, but when you help her she says she can do it better."
