The holidays are all about spending quality time with family and friends. But sometimes, as you’re scrolling through your Instagram and Twitter feeds and seeing all of the fabulous things celebrities are doing, you kinda wish you were hanging with them instead. We figured why not make you (and ourselves) even more envious you didn’t get to spend the day unwrapping presents and drinking mimosas with all the famous faces out there and roundup all the holiday shenanigans our fave celebs got into on Christmas day?! Take a look at what the jet set were up to this year!

3. Britney Spears: Brit and her boys all dressed in matching plaid, all hail the Queen of Pop (and Christmas).
4. Reese Witherspoon: An actual Wreath Witherspoon. How meta.
5. Miley Cyrus: In typical “WTF Miley?” fashion, we have no idea what’s going on here. But we do approve of all the Christmasy, ’90s accessories.
6. Lauren Conrad: Spreading Christmas joy in the cutest way possible, as only LC could.

10. Allison Williams: When she’s not playing Peter Pan, this girl sports tacky Christmas sweaters like the rest of us for the holidays.
11. Solange: The Knowles ladies couldn’t be bothered by Christmas back then. Guess visions of sugar plum fairies and future jet setting and champagne popping was lookin’ way better.

23. Joe + Nick Jonas: Our invite to spend the day on the mountains with the JoBros must have gotten lost, maybe we didn’t make the nice list after all…
24. Drake: We were hoping for one of his signature sweaters under our trees, but we’re also down with this animated, somber Christmas wish from Drizzy.
25. Blake Lively: Our fave soon-to-be mom knows just how to preserve the holidays.
26. Kylie Jenner: A puppy? This famous K won Christmas by default because OMG LOOK HOW CUTE.

43. Ciara: You may need to do the one-two step, Ciara, because baby Santa’s got your nose.
