Hollywood gets quiet this time of year, as the stars tend to go back home to be with their families. Before taking off, though, celebs shared their holiday wishes and traditions with ET.

"We've got a 2-year-old boy at home, so we're going to shower him with presents," Chris Pratt told ET. "He's just getting old enough now to start enjoying this stuff, so we're actually going to the grandparents' house in Washington state."

The Guardians of the Galaxy star has a son, Jack, with wife Anna Faris.

"We're gonna celebrate in Miami this year with my boyfriend," said Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez, who's riding high on Golden Globe nominations for her and her show. "It's a Cuban thing, so it's a lot of pork, which is great."

John Stamos, whose mother died earlier this year, told us, "My wish is going to come true this year. I'm getting to spend the holidays with my family. I usually spend time with them, but [this year] we're going to go away to the mountains."

"I think the wish is just to have some down time and celebrate with family," Nick Jonas said. After starring in -- and stripping down for -- the show Kingdom, he's ready for a break. "It's been a pretty busy couple of months, so having a low-key week or two would be ideal."

Kristen Bell had a baby girl last week and ET spoke to her not long before little Delta was born.

"[My wish is] for the baby to come out happy and healthy," said Kristen. (Wish definitely granted!)

"I think it's important to stay as far from your family as possible," joked Kathy Griffin, who will once again co-host New Year's Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper on CNN. "Once my mom is halfway through a box of wine, she's uncontrollable, so I think it's good to act like the holidays are a regular day because we put too much pressure on the holiday."

"I love watching movies so I just want a day off and curl up with the people I love," said chef and talk show host Rachael Ray.

Rachael's holiday tradition seems to be popular among most of the celebs we talked to. Kristin Chenoweth told ET her favorite is Christmas Vacation. "I watch White Christmas every year," said Glee's Amber Riley.

"I'm into Home Alone," said ABC News anchor Robin Roberts. "He's such a cute little kid."

ET's Nancy O'Dell also had the honor of lighting the Christmas tree at Los Angeles' The Grove with Maria Shriver and Brooklyn Decker. Watch the video to see Nancy pry out of Santa Claus who is on his nice list and who was naughty.
