Does Beyoncé Cook Christmas Dinner For the Carter Family?
She’s a singer, dancer, activist, and the mother of three children. Thanks to one interview, fans learned how Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, Blue Ivy, and Sir and Rumi Carter celebrate the holiday season. (Spoiler Alert: it includes decorating Christmas cookies together.)
Beyoncé often shares her love for the holiday season
Even before she was releasing music as a solo artist, Beyoncé was sharing her love of Christmas with fans, releasing the Destiny’s Child album 8 Days of Christmas. Now, Beyoncé uses her superstardom to donate and raise money during the holiday season.
That’s not to say she doesn’t spend time with her family during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thanks to her yearly “Bey-Cap,” fans saw the Carter family visiting the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center and singing together.
Beyoncé’s mom cooks her family’s Thanksgiving meal
It’s unclear if this artist is the main cook behind her family’s Christmas Day feast. When it comes to her Thanksgiving meal, Beyoncé shared that she’s normally not the mastermind behind the main dishes. During a 2008 interview with Express, she said that her mom normally cooks, with the artist contributing some kind of dessert.
“Hopefully I’ll try to make some type of pie. I’m not the best cook, but I think I’m ready to try something,” she said. Of course, the holidays in 2020 look different for most families, the Carters included.
For a period of time, Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, wasn’t quarantined with her daughter, meaning she couldn’t spend time with her three grandchildren.
Since then, however, she’s spent time with Blue, doing science experiments, Halloween makeup, and everything in between. As a result, it’s unclear if this family will be all together for Christmas Day.
Beyoncé decorates Christmas cookies with her children
She may be a Grammy Award-winning artist, but Beyoncé still has time to do traditional Christmas activities with her three children. During one interview, Beyoncé shared some of her family’s Christmas favorites, including decorating cookies.
“My twins are three and now they are old enough to understand Christmas,” Beyoncé said during her cover story with British Vogue. “I love Christmas. We decorate cookies and ornaments. We also collect ornaments with everyone’s favorite things. We decorate while jamming to Christmas music.”
“Blue leaves milk and cookies for Santa, and always leaves the most beautiful letters for him,” she continued. “We get up early and open presents and then we have a big lunch with all of our family. I love the joy and wonderment of children on Christmas. It makes me feel like a kid.”
Music by Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, including “Brown Skin Girl,” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and most major streaming platforms. Beyoncé’s recently released visual album, Black is King, is available exclusively on Disney’s streaming platform.
