What Are Your Christmas Traditions?

This year, for only the second time ever, I’ll be missing Christmas with my family. My parents live in Germany and my husband and I decided to save our vacation time and travel budget and stay home in New York this year. I’m definitely sad to be missing my family, especially since I saw them only a total of three days this whole year, but considering all the weather-related travel snafus in Europe right now, it’s probably for the best we decided to stay put. So, since this is my first-ever Christmas in NYC — and my first with just my husband and me — we’re thinking about new traditions we can start as our own little family unit. Since Drew, my husband, is Jewish, we’ll probably honor his tradition of Chinese food and a movie either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. And if I can get my act together, I’ll roast a chicken and make some trimmings for a nice dinner. Any other suggestions for making the holiday feel more festive? What kind of traditions do you and your family have? Keep reading »

Emma Watson, who has supposedly taken up pole dancing on the set of “The Bling Ring” to learn how to dance like a stripper. Even though she never thought she’d like it, a source tells the UK’s Sun newspaper that Emma is “amazed with the results because it has toned her body so well [and] finds it quite liberating.” Our little Hermione is growing up! Read on to hear why more stars love the pole. [The Sun UK]
