Christmas celebrations all over the world may look a little different this year, with some being smaller or involving less travel. Luke Combs, however, says his Christmas will most likely be the same this year, as he and his wife Nicole often opt for a smaller gathering.
“I think this year will be — I don’t know if it will be any different than any other year, I guess, that we’ve had,” he says. “Hopefully I have, you know, both sets of our parents in town and my wife’s sister I think. That’s usually what we do, you know, keep it small.”
While the Christmas celebration at his home is often low key, he and his family do sometimes travel to North Carolina for the holidays to join a bigger celebration with his extended family. Combs says has has fond memories of being with his loved ones for Christmas ever since he was a child.
“My mom’s side of the family always has a big Christmas party in Charlotte and me and my wife always go to that every year too,” he says. “Couple traditions, that’s really it, we like to keep. We were always very family oriented in that sense when it came to the holidays, so I have a lot of fond memories of growing up with my cousins and hanging out with my grandparents and my aunts and uncles. That’s the thing I think I look forward to most about the holidays. It’s not getting gifts or getting drunk, which is also cool, but I think just hanging and seeing people you haven’t seen in a while and catching up with them I think is what I look forward to the most.”
