Renowned entertainer, Trisha Yearwood, revealed what the annual Christmas traditions hold for her and country musician husband, Garth Brooks.


It's the yuletide season, characterized by lots of laughter, merrymaking, and, most importantly, it's a time when all the family gets together to share some quality time.

For Yearwood, the season involves different types of celebration. First, Thanksgiving, inviting lots of people over to celebrate, and it is referred to as the "misfit Thanksgiving."

However, Christmas includes family visitations, and it's a "quiet" moment for everyone. In her words:

"I have family in Georgia, and we have family in Oklahoma, so it's kind of like a progressive Christmas where go to everybody and see everybody. it's a lot more quiet."

Amid the whole events, the pair never misses an opportunity to share some quality time with their girls August, Allie, and Taylor.


Both Yearwood and Garth set up the Christmas tree yearly without decorating it. They wait on their children, and when the whole family is complete, they fix the hangings on the tree.

The food show host sees this time as a special moment for her family, even though Trisha's stepchildren live away from her house.


Family isn't the only set of people she hangs out with, or neither is the crowd she hosts. Another unique set of people are her close buddies, who she hosts, as they come with ingredients to make cookies.

She said:

"We have a Christmas cookie party where all my friends come over and bring their recipe foot Christmas cookie or dessert that their whole family has made."


Celebrating Christmas isn't the only bonding time between the couple. Even when Yearwood is on stage, she finds a way to bring out the emotions in her husband, which she did following her performance at the Kennedy Honors Awards last month.

Garth, who is a seasoned country sensation, can also bring a woman to tears with his heartwarming performance. During an episode of Kelly Clarkson's talk show, he appeared as a guest and serenaded the host with his tunes, which made her cry.

Garth Brooks' expertise in entertainment has also earned him big wins. At the just-concluded Country Music Awards, he bagged the award for the best "Entertainer of the Year." 

Although this caused an uproar among fans of Carrie Underwood, who thought, the "Jesus Take the Wheel" singer deserved the win.
