Jack Osbourne said he and his family go all out for Christmas and have found a way to incorporate their traditions from England into their celebrations in the United States.

"With the family, Christmas is our big to-do. We do Christmas Eve, we do Christmas Day, and we still celebrate Boxing Day, so it's like a three-day event for us. We go all out," the "Special Forces: World's Toughest Test" contestant explained. "There's usually a fight at some point. There's usually some drama, something happens. Someone gets pissed off or whatever. It's just like a typical family. Politics come up, me and my sister disagree, and then it's like, you know, the average internet meme."

Actress and model Donna D'Errico admits that she loves to get into the holiday spirit.

"I really like to get festive. I really like to decorate," she said, adding that she tends to "go all out with the Griswold-type decorations on the outside" and "a big huge, really gaudy looking tree" inside.

One tradition she makes sure to uphold every year is baking cookies for her loved ones.

"I make Christmas cookies, and I box them up, and I give them to all my neighbors and I send them to my relatives. Dumb stuff like that, but I enjoy it, it’s what I like," D'Errico said. "I get a gigantic thing of all kinds of different cookies that my mom used to make when we were growing up, and I don’t eat them, but I want somebody to, so I give them all away."

"I want to start new traditions, maybe building a snowman in our backyard, if it snows enough.
