It was all about family for Jenna Bush Hager, who gathered with her husband, Henry, twin sister Barbara, and her parents, former president George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush, for a joyous picture with daughters Mila and Poppy.

Same selfie, different year. Love to yours. Xx

Carson Daly paid a touching tribute to his parents after a difficult year in which his mother, Pattie Daly Caruso, died at 73 in September and then his stepfather, Richard Caruso, died a month later from bone cancer.

Carson left some red wine on the mantel for mom and some scotch for the man he called "Pops" as his three children opened their gifts.

Dylan Dreyer's baby boy, Calvin, who celebrated his first birthday eight days earlier, wasn't so much interested in opening his presents. He was more about eating Cheerios and looking like an adorable Christmas cherub.

Christmas is also all about family traditions. Al Roker carried on one started by his father when he made some scrumptious-looking cinnamon rolls from scratch for his family. He also watched the family dog frolic in the snow.
