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.
