The holiday season is officially upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with your friends and family, and your favourite holiday tradition.


Moments Magazine caught up with some of your favourite local celebs and asked them to share their Christmas/Holiday traditions.

Here’s what they had to say:
Media Personality, Liezel van der Westhuizen: As a family we normally celebrate Christmas a week earlier as most of us are either travelling or working. So our Christmas Tradition is combined with The Day of Reconciliation.

Professional Rugby Player, Justin Geduld: Braai, family, giving back, and seeing old friends! My house is never empty!


Actress, Nicole Bessick: We have quite a special Christmas tradition that’s been in our family literally since I was born. My extended family and I go to midnight mass on Christmas Eve. After mass has ended and the clock has hit midnight, we go to each family members house and open the presents under each tree. We start with the matriarch of our family, my grandmother, and work our way down the family tree from there.







Model and Author, Sasha-Lee Taylor: As a family each Christmas we give to an animal shelter, this year we plan to give to the animal shelter “Claws”- just to make their Christmas special as well.

Professional Rugby Player, Steven Kitshoff: Every holiday we head down to Langebaan and enjoy some watersports out on the Lagoon! We just love spending Christmas with family.

TV Personality, Michelle D: I am all about the TREE – so we put up my big-ol-tree…. And I love Christmas eve where we play Pentatonix (my fav Christmas Carols) and ceremoniously put the Angle on top of the tree.


Professional Rugby Player, Dillon Smit: We don’t have any particular traditions except for spending this time with family and really get your mind away from everyday life. It’s maybe a good time to start one!
