iStock/ThinkstockChristmas finally is here and, just like so many other people around the world, plenty of famous musicians will be spending quality time during the holiday with their loved ones.
Veteran singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins says he and his teenage daughter have fun with an annual activity that they enjoy doing together.
"My 16-year-old daughter and I have been putting up a Christmas village of those little ceramic Dickens houses," Loggins explains. "We usually add one each year, so it stretches across the entire dining room/living room area. And it's really the way that we emotionally bring in the holidays."
Jefferson Airplane spinoff group Hot Tuna has had a busy touring schedule that kept them on the road through Thanksgiving, but singer/guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady will have a little break at Christmas. "We'll be home for Christmas, which is going to be nice," Kaukonen tells ABC News Radio. He adds, however, "We have a tour that starts on the 2nd of January, so we're zipping in and out."
Yes drummer Alan White, meanwhile, tells ABC News Radio that he and his wife, Gigi, likely will visit "quite a few people around the area," referring to their home city of Seattle. He adds, "We just have fun and enjoy the festive season."
La La Brooks, who was lead singer of the Phil Spector-produced girl group The Crystals, tells ABC News Radio that she's planning to have a very laid-back holiday.
"I just go with the flow," says Brooks, who sang the classic Crystals hits "And Then He Kissed Me" and "Da Doo Ron Ron." "Whoever comes over's fine. Wherever I want to go, I just go...I want to go where the good food is and where I can just chill and rest."
La La, who's a New York City native, adds, "I just love the holidays. I love the…scenery and the sounds of music and Christmas sounds. So I just have a ball just walking down the street looking at the trees and [I also] love the smell of the men that are selling the trees outside."
Lastly, ***** Blues frontman Justin Hayward tells ABC News Radio that he's planning a similarly relaxing holiday. "I think I'm gonna flop down over Christmas and not do anything at all," the singer/guitarist declares. "That's my plan."
