Thomas Rhett is like most dads, he wants his kids to have a good time at Christmas and during the holiday season, but he also wants to make sure that the meaning of Christmas is not lost on them.
Thomas says “I do think there’s a lot of us that really just look at Christmas in the wrong light. And so yeah, we definitely want to get them what they want and get their gifts and talk about Santa Claus and all that kind of mess. But I really, from a young age, would love to try to ingrain in their heads, like, what Christmas truly is about. ”
Thomas adds, “We say that, but then all we really think about is the gift giving. You know, I know a lot of families that don’t even do gifts anymore and literally they go out and, like, serve on Christmas Day. In theory, that sounds super cool. I’d hope that we can as a family get to a point where that is what Christmas is to our family rather than all the stuff.”
Spreading a little holiday music cheer, here’s Thomas Rhett from this year’s CMA Country Christmas TV special, which he hosted with his wife Lauren, singing his track “Christmas in the Country.”
