Jada Pinkett Smith Says Will Smith Thinks She Does ‘Too Much’ When It Comes To Family Holiday Activities
It’s safe to say that Jada Pinkett Smith loves everything about Christmas. During a 2018 episode of Red Table Talk, the actor opened up about her yuletide traditions and how much she enjoys spending the holiday season with her family, even though they don’t share the same excitement as she does.

If there’s anyone who loves everything about Christmas, it’s Pinkett Smith!
During a 2018 holiday edition of Red Table Talk, the actor gushed over the most wonderful time of the year while opening up about some of her go-to Christmas traditions.
The episode kicked off with Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Jones (aka Gammy) entering the room dressed in Christmas-themed outfits, which just so happens to be one of Jada’s favorite holiday pastimes.
“One of my Christmas traditions is making sure everyone has Christmas pajamas that everybody has to wear Christmas Eve,” she said. “So that when we wake up in the morning everybody has on Christmas pajamas.”
Pinkett Smith’s other holiday traditions include throwing ugly Christmas sweater parties and taking sleigh rides with her loved ones.
Though all of these activities sound like the perfect way to get anyone into the Christmas spirit, Pinkett Smith says that not everyone in her family is fond of her holiday traditions.
Will Smith has called out Jada Pinkett Smith for doing too much for Christmas
Though Pinkett Smith just wants her loved ones to get into the holiday spirit with her annual traditions, Will Smith believes that she goes a little overboard with her Christmas activities.
During the Red Table Talk episode, the actor revealed that her husband isn’t a huge fan of her holiday traditions.
“In our household, Will is not always for my traditions,” she said before rolling a clip of a grumpy Will from 2017 complaining about her doing “too much for Christmas,” like forcing the family to take a sleigh ride.
But the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star’s complaints didn’t stop there.
On Instagram, Smith put his wife on blast for hosted an ugly Christmas sweater party at their house and getting the kids involved.
“Somebody Please Help! Jada makes us wear these Ugly Ass Sweaters for Christmas… She’s Doin’ Too Much! And she’s just gettin’ Started,” he captioned a photo of himself looking miserable in his festive Christmas sweater.
But despite not being a fan of Pinkett Smith’s holiday doings, Smith still made the most of their family activities as he was filmed singing Christmas carols with everyone else while on the sleigh ride.
Still, Christmastime brings out the best in Will Smith
Though he wasn’t about the holiday festivities in 2017, it seems Smith had a change of heart in 2018 as he got into full Christmas mode while celebrating the festive season.
In a hilarious video shared to YouTube, the Men In Black star filmed himself and his loved ones getting into the Christmas spirit.
First, Smith put his wife on “full blast” for buying every Christmas light Costco had and hanging them in the living room. (Although, shout-out to Pinkett Smith, because that living room was nothing short of magical!)
The actor then turned his attention to his kids — Willow and Jaden, 20, who weren’t as enthusiastic about the holidays as he was.
“Willow! Willow!” Smith shouts before locating his daughter and trying to hug the holiday spirit into her. “Willow, it’s Christmas, come on.” The “Whip My Hair” singer then playfully responds, “You’re crazy.”
Smith then finds Jaden, who he orders to put on some Christmas clothes and store away his video game, stating, “I’m not liking your attitude about Christmas… y’all going to get into the Christmas spirit whether you like it or not.”
Eventually, the actor slips into a green Santa-face suit, a bright red hat, and a necklace with blinking, vintage-style Christmas lights. “This feels right for me,” he says in the video.
The video ends with the entire Smith family gathering in front of their Christmas tree to create a living Christmas card. “From our family to yours,” they say in unison, “Merry Christmas!”
