Recently, we learned that Blake Shelton’s favorite holiday is Christmas. In celebration of the holiday season this year, The Voice judge took the festivities to an all-new level by releasing a “Not So Family Christmas” special starring some of his closest friends and family. He even co-wrote and sang a song with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, fulfilling a long time dream of hers. During the holidays, Blake and wife Miranda enjoy simple Christmas traditions. Keep reading to find out more.
According to US Magazine, Lambert said one of their holiday traditions is wrapping presents together. “We usually have one night where we are by ourselves before Christmas when we wrap all the gifts,” Lambert said “We started [it] three or four years ago … Now it’s our date night!”
While some men leave wrapping presents, decorating, and getting things ready for the holidays, Lambert said of Shelton, “He actually helps me,” then admits they both prefer gift bags over traditional wrapping paper. “It’s easier,” said Lambert, “and you can use them next year, too.”
But it isn’t just friends and family of the humankind who receive gifts around Blake and Miranda’s house. Their six rescue dogs, Delilah, Delta Dawn, Jessi, Waylon, Dixie, and Molly also receive a gift. Miranda explained, “All the dogs get their individually wrapped gifts,” she said. “They’re spoiled.”
After all the gifts are wrapped and the day of Christmas is here, Lambert said, “We spend Christmas with my mom on Christmas Day and his [Blake’s] mom the day after Christmas.” She added, “It’s a time where we slow down for the year and we can look forward to being normal people and hanging out with our families.” She explains, “Those times are so few and far between right now. Thanksgiving and Christmas are our light at the end of the tunnel every year.”
