by Matthew Wilson

Carrie Underwood has Christmas on her mind. The holiday season is making the country singer feel a bit nostalgic. Underwood reflects on Christmases past and her favorite childhood memories.

As a kid, Underwood would always go to her grandparents’ house on Christmas Eve. It’s the little things that she remembers like singing Christmas carols at nursing homes or Christmas stockings.

“Christmas was always just about family,” Underwood said in a press release. “One thing that we always did growing up that was one of my favorite memories. We would on Christmas Eve, we would go to my grandparents’ house. Us kids were always responsible for putting oranges and apples and bananas in little paper bags. And we would go down to the nursing home and sing Christmas carols.”

Another tradition that Carrie Underwood remembers is decorating the house the week after Thanksgiving. She hopes to create similar memories for her sons Isaiah and Jacob.

“For me growing up, Christmas was always just comforting,” Underwood continued. “We always had the same stockings and the same tree and the same decorations. And we would always decorate the weekend right after Thanksgiving. You know, flip the Christmas switch, put the tree up. Now that we’re adults and have kids, we can go to the Christmas tree farm and we can walk around. And we can pick out which one and ask Isaiah, ‘Which one do you think?’ Just things like that, making those memories. It’s just a joyful time of year.”
