Soap opera stars share their Christmas plans and discuss favorite Christmas movies.

Christine Fix asked Molly Burnett (Melanie Kiriakis, Days of our Lives) what she has planned for Christmas this year. Molly discusses her plans, a family tradition and her favorite Christmas movie. “I plan on going home and sitting in front of the fire with my family. My family and I get white Russians at The Brown Palace on Christmas Eve after the candle light service. So much fun!”

Molly’s fave Christmas movie? “Chevy Chase in “Christmas Vacation.” Easy.” She tells us her favorite part. “When they’re trying to cut down the tree and Ellen goes, “Clark, Audrey’s frozen from the waist down,” and Clarke says, (like my dad used to) “That’s all part of the experience, honey.”

Lexi Ainsworth (Kristina Corinthos Davis, General Hospital) told Christine Fix, “Traditionally we always spent Christmas with my Nana in Oklahoma but last year after her death we decided to spend it with an exchange student of ours from France. After our Italian exchange student and his family’s visit to us in California this summer they invited us to do the same again this Christmas especially now that we’ve sold our home in Ok and haven’t purchased one here in CA yet. We hosted over a dozen exchange students in Oklahoma so we could make that our new Christmas tradition for quite a while.” [laughs]

Lexi’s favorite Christmas movie? “How the Grinch stole Christmas,” and Lexi tells us her favorite quote. “He puzzled and puzzled ‘til his puzzler was sore, then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before. Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a ‘lil bit more.”

Casey Diedrick (Chad Peterson-Woods, Days of our Lives) tells Christine Fix, “For Christmas I’m flying home to Colorado to play in the snow. Thinking of having a mountain day and hit the slopes on my snowboard.” His traditions? “My traditions include unwrapping all the gifts on Christmas Eve, then re-wrapping them because I’m too excited. We always have a big Christmas Eve feast, that end up being left-overs for the remainder of the holidays.”
