Christmas is always a big deal around Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert's house, especially for Blake.
Miranda says, "Blake loves Christmas. He always has. He's the type that plays Christmas music all year long."
Blake and Miranda make sure to spend time with both sides of their family in Texas and Oklahoma each Christmas. The holiday gives them a chance to just relax at the end of a very busy and successful year.
"It's a time when we slow down for the year every year," Miranda explains, "and we can look forward to just being normal people and hanging out with our families and those times are so few and far between right now. "
This will be Blake's first Christmas since losing his father earlier this year, but he has a precious memory to hold on to from last year. Blake hung out in his dad's hospital room last Christmas, and they ended up laughing through the night.
Says Blake, "We watched a marathon of Dumbest Stuff on Wheels together on Christmas Eve this past year, and man, I wouldn't trade that time with him for anything. It's something I'll never forget."
