Sarah Michelle Gellar is gearing up for another fun Christmas with her family!
In a new interview, the 38-year-old actress dished on how she's spending the holidays with her husband, Freddie Prinze, Jr., 39, and their two kids, Charlotte, 6, and Rocky, 3 — and revealed their special tradition for trimming a Christmas tree!
“Each family member and dog gets an ornament engraved with the year and picks a special picture to put in it,” Sarah Michelle told Us Weekly. “I have to be honest, though — I pick the dogs’!”
“Once [the kids are] older, we will all have trees with beautiful photographs of our family," she continued. Sarah Michelle and Freddie — who married in September 2002 — welcomed Charlotte in September 2009 and Rocky in September 2012.
The Cruel Intentions star also shared her brood's tradition of helping families in need over the holidays. “I don’t want [my children] to focus on presents. That isn’t what Christmas is about,” Sarah Michelle said, adding she picks up letters written to Santa by underprivileged children at her local post office and encourages her two kids to help fulfill their wishes.
"It’s heartbreaking because so often they ask for diapers and formula, things my kids are fortunate enough to think are always accessible," she said. And what do the Gellar-Prinze clan give one another for Christmas? “Everybody buys funny socks for each other. We use them year-round. My daughter just had crazy sock day at school!” she shared.
