Hilary Duff posted a new message to fans over at KOL on Thursday (December 22). The teen queen writes, “Getting ready for Christmas @ the Duffs is an experience that is fun and joyous. Let me begin with the outside. It takes my dad 6 hours, 3 ladders and a tool set to put the lights up. I love how he does it. He doesn’t put up tons of tacky conflicting colors. He’s classy – he uses only the clear lights. It looks like a work of art.”
“Going inside, we have a huge tree decorated with ribbons and lights and Radkos’. (My aunt Roz started a tradition with Christopher Radkos ornaments, they are special collectible tree ornaments and one-of-a-kind). Every year, we get a new one. We also have our little house set with a snowman, elves and Santa! We went all out this year. The house is so full. If we add another thing, I think it will be too much. (I think I might want a train track.)
“Moving on, since my mom cooked Thanksgiving, Haylie is going to make her special homemade guacamole and chips. I will prepare a special chicken dish with orange citrus. I can’t cook everything, but I have specialty dishes mastered. My dad makes the best skillet cooked steaks. He uses peanut oil and a special rub from Texas.
“This Christmas is special because we don’t have to work and I get to spend time with mom dad, sis and my nana. I absolutely love Christmas Eve! I peeked under the tree and saw a few Louis Vuitton boxes… (I’ll be good and wait. I promise I won’t open them until Christmas Day).
“Gotta go! Have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
