while car­ol­ers are singing about hav­ing a white Christ­mas, GH’s Steve Bur­ton (Ja­son) and his fam­ily are look­ing for­ward to a snow-free hol­i­day now that they have moved back to Cal­i­for­nia. “Liv­ing in Nashville for the past five years, we got to en­joy all of the sea­sons dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son,” says Y&R’s for­mer Dy­lan. “Now, we’re happy be­ing on the beach and it be­ing 70 de­grees out­side!”

Christ­mas will find Bur­ton’s fam­ily loung­ing in their pa­ja­mas and en­joy­ing some good, old-fash­ioned home cook­ing cour­tesy of his mom. “I tried con­vinc­ing her that we should go to a restau­rant or or­der ev­ery­thing from Whole Foods,” says the ac­tor, “but she wasn’t hav­ing it! She likes to cook, so I said, ‘Okay, great… cook!’”

Will Bur­ton be lend­ing a hand in the kitchen? “I prob­a­bly won’t this year,” he ad­mits — then quickly amends his state­ment with a laugh: “I will def­i­nitely help by eat- ing ev­ery­thing!”

What mat­ters most, he says, is that the fam­ily will be to­gether. “Our faith is a big part of our lives,” he shares, “and to cel­e­brate that means a lot to us. I know we shouldn’t need re­minders to count our bless­ings, but that’s what the hol­i­days are: a time to re­flect on all the bless­ings we have and how for­tu­nate we are. Some­times, you need to slow down and ap­pre­ci­ate the peo­ple around you.”

Come Christ­mas morn­ing, Bur­ton and his fam­ily will be dressed farless for­mally.
