Christmas is normally a time of cheer for families – a time when we come together to celebrate and take part in family traditions. Unfortunately, when you’re a celebrity, some of those traditions can get completely ruined by people you don’t even know…
An Interview About Tradition
During an interview with CMT Radio host, Cody Alan, Carrie Underwood was asked if her favorite Christmas tradition was going back to Oklahoma.
Her Family Is All Spread Out
Carrie told him that her family has “kind of lost traditions, which I feel a little sad about. We are always traveling and none of our family lives here.” Carrie then went on to talk about how her husband, Mike Fisher’s family is in Canada and hers is still back in Oklahoma while the couple resides in Nashville. With little Isaiah and another baby on the way – all that traveling would be very difficult!
Her Favorite Tradition Was Taken From Her
Carrie then continued on to explain that there was one specific tradition that she wished she still had in her family. Unfortunately, that tradition was ruined by a stranger years ago.
She told Cody Alan, “Growing up, um, at Christmas, we would go to my grandma’s house. They lived down the street,” said Carrie thoughtfully. “We would go there, and all the kids, on Christmas eve, would put apples, and oranges, and bananas in little paper bags. And, then, we would all go to the nursing home and we would sing Christmas carols up and down the halls and pass out fruit to all the people who didn’t have any visitors on Christmas eve.”
An excited Cody told her to “Bring it Back!” But Carrie went on to explain how “We tried. One year, back home, and somebody who was at the place told everybody. All of the sudden there were all these people that weren’t members of the nursing home who were just there. It kind of backfired, but we did try.”
You could tell Carrie truly missed being able to participate in this special tradition. You can watch her full interview in the video below.
