Carrie Underwood’s Christmas Traditions Involve Traveling and Food
Carrie Underwood says that her Christmas hadn’t changed much from when she was a young girl. She usually still gets together with her family, which includes her parents, two sisters, and their families, as well as her husband, Mike Fisher, and sons Isaiah and Jacob.
Carrie says some of her Christmas traditions include a lot of traveling to visit her family and her husband Mike Fisher’s family but also cooking and celebrating the season. She told us, “My perfect Christmas; generally, we do a lot of traveling around Christmas. We’ll go see either my family or my husband’s family.” Underwood added, “I’ll spend all day cooking. I’ll make a small turkey, even though I don’t eat turkey. I’ll make some turkey, cranberry sauce, of course. Of course, sweet potato casserole. You have to have that. That’s one of my favorites because it’s a side dish and dessert, but I’ll just make a ridiculous amount of food. Just celebrate, have a fire, wait for Santa, and open our presents, then we’re off to see the next group of family. It’s all about watching it through my sons’ eyes and just getting to spend time with family.”
The mother of two loves to cook, especially at Christmas, “I do love to cook, and I love to go all out for Christmas. I don’t do anything super fancy – lots of casseroles and stuff like that, like broccoli rice casserole and some sort of macaroni dish, and there’s always deviled eggs. I don’t know why we eat deviled eggs every holiday. It’s like the holiday thing to do is make deviled eggs. What else do I do? There’s pecan pie—that’s my husband’s favorite. I love pumpkin pie, so I’ll always make that. My son and I will make Christmas cookies and things like that, green bean casserole. That’s another one. I don’t know, I might be the only one who eats green bean casserole, but it’s the kind of thing that you just have to have it.”
