Luke Bryan’s dreams of a white Christmas are coming true this year as he and his family are plotting a Christmas vacation full of winter fun.
Rather than stick around Tennessee where it rarely snows, the superstar and his family, which includes his wife, Caroline, sons “Bo” and “Tate,” their two nieces and their nephew, are heading north for a guaranteed a winter wonderland.
“This year, we’re excited. We are insuring ourselves of a white Christmas. We’re going snow skiing on Christmas,” Bryan recently revealed. “So, snowmen, chestnuts roasting by an open fire, the whole Jack Frost thing, snow skiing, chapped skin, busted lips…”
While their Christmas vacation may not be very traditional, the Bryan family will likely continue their long-standing tradition of having chili dogs on Christmas Eve.
“My mother comes up and we go shop. She makes me go shop with her, so we have to pick out all the right stuff. We have to get the proper buns, the proper wieners. It’s very important. All beef wieners for the chili dog cooking. It’s a ritual,” he once explained of their Christmas Eve custom.
The “What She Wants Tonight” singer and his wife Caroline recently adopted a new tradition in which they’ve dubbed “The 12 Days of Pranksmas.” Fans can follow Caroline on Instagram to watch the craziness go down every day until Christmas.
