    4) Carrie Underwood was asked what Christmas is like around her house.  She seems to enjoy toiling in the kitchen.  She cooks turkey for everyone, and tofurkey for herself.  She also does cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole.

    And her family has a new tradition.  Quote, "For the past few years, we all get matching PJs.  My husband, myself, my sons and our dogs.  And getting my German shepherd into a Christmas sweater is no easy feat."  (UMG)


    5) This week, Tom Brady posted a montage on Instagram of himself hitting some golf shots on the driving range, with Morgan Wallen's songs "Broadway Girls" and "Whiskey Friends" playing in the background.

    Morgan noticed it, and reposted it on his Instagram story, asking the question:  "When we playing a match??"  And Brady responded:  "LFG," which of course is a colorful way of saying, "let's go!"  (TMZ)


    6) This Christmas will be special for Jon Pardi and his wife Summer now that they're a family of three.  Their daughter Presley was born last February.  During a recent interview Jon talked about his expectations.

    Quote, "She will not know what the hell's going on.  She's gonna love the lights. She's gonna try to eat everything, but it'll be very magical [and] I'm glad I have an album now I can play for her."  ("Merry Christmas from Jon Pardi" came out last month.)  (UMG)
