Katie Holmes’ Hol­i­day Night­mare: Her ex, Tom Cruise, is fight­ing to take Suri for Christ­mas.

FOR Katie Holmes, there’s no time quite as mag­i­cal as Christ­mas. “The hol­i­day sea­son means so much be­cause it’s all about fam­ily and mak­ing sure that the peo­ple that you love know how much you care for them,” she said last year. “We have so many tra­di­tions in our house. We play a lot of board games and we hang out as a fam­ily, and that’s so spe­cial.” But this year, things will be very dif­fer­ent. Katie’s ex Tom Cruise is push­ing hard to re­unite with their daugh­ter, Suri, 12, over Christ­mas — and Katie isn’t happy, a source tells Star. “Katie’s ab­so­lutely pan­ick­ing over the fact that she may lose Suri for the hol­i­days,” says the source, adding that the Daw­son’s Creek alum, 39, is stunned that Tom, 56, has cho­sen to in­voke his re­ported 10-dayper-month vis­i­ta­tion rights now. “Tom’s been com­pletely ab­sent from Suri’s life for years. She has no idea why he’s walk­ing back in now — es­pe­cially since he knows how im­por­tant Christ­mas is to Katie.”

A CHRIST­MAS MIR­A­CLE While Katie’s rep de­nies our story, our source says Tom has plans to spend the hol­i­days with Suri and in­sists that the Mis­sion: Im­pos­si­ble star is pulling out all the stops. “He al­ways sends Suri a truck­load of ex­pen­sive Christ­mas gifts. But this year he wants the big­gest sur­prise of all to be him­self,” dishes the source, adding that Tom — who hasn’t been pho­tographed pub­licly with Suri since 2013 — is plan­ning to rent a luxe pent­house in NYC to cel­e­brate. “Katie had al­ready ar­ranged to take Suri back to her par­ents’ place in Ohio for Christ­mas, so it’s caused a huge up­roar among her Toledo rel­a­tives.” But Katie can’t bring herself to stop him, since she knows it would mean so much to Suri af­ter miss­ing her daddy for so long.

How­ever, Tom’s in­ten­tions may not be so pure. “The buzz is that the Church of Scien­tol­ogy is push­ing for this re­union,” warns an in­sider close to the ac­tor, ex­plain­ing that the con­tro­ver­sial religion’s im­age has taken a beat­ing since Katie left Tom in 2012, re­port­edly to pro­tect Suri from the cult­like religion. “They don’t want to force them back into Scien­tol­ogy. It’s more like they’d like Katie and Suri to be seen as pas­sively co­ex­ist­ing with the church, and maybe then po­ten­tial fol­low­ers would be less sus­pi­cious.” As a re­sult, “Tom has been in­structed to give Suri the best Christ­mas ever,” says the in­sider, adding that the Top Gun star has promised to make that hap­pen. While the tween is sure to have the time of her life with her dad, “you have to feel for Katie,” notes the source. “It ob­vi­ously hurts to be ripped away from your daugh­ter, but it’s even worse dur­ing this time of year.”

To­tal Shock “Katie would never stop Suri from see­ing her dad, but she can’t be­lieve Tom would do this to her dur­ing the hol­i­days,” says a source.
