Everyone is obsessed with twitpics, or photos shared on Twitter for all to see. Tweeting pictures of users’ favorite foods, images and phrases has become so highly favored that an official Twitpic app has been introduced for both the iPhone and Android. Some of our favorite celebrities, however, are taking the time to tweet how they are celebrating the holidays this year. Here’s a few of our favorites.
Between this week and last, “White Chicks” and “Cougar Town” star Busy Philipps truly lived up to her stage name, having tweeted an image of her positive pregnancy test with the caption, “So this happened…” – making this her second child with screenwriter husband Marc Silverstein.
But in not-so-personal holiday twitpics, Philipps shared a photo last week of her making latkes for her daughter, Birdie’s, Chanuka party. Accompanying the photo of her frying the traditional food was the caption: “Like the good shiksa mom I am, making latkes for my kid’s school Chanuka party…”
“New Girl” star and one half of the always-cute duo “She & Him” Zooey Deschanel was also in the holiday spirit this weekend, having tweeted a picture of her lighting a menorah with a caption, “Happy Chanukah ya’ll!!!”
Mariah Carey has been taking to Twitter a lot over the last week, having tweeted a picture of her and Jimmy Fallon from their “festive shenanigans again, getting ready 4 Christmas!” a.k.a. their hilariously cute holiday video
of Carey singing “All I want for Christmas is You.” The diva was also particularly excited to get some Christmas shopping done this weekend, having tweeted a picture of her in a simple white top, fresh face and festive red nails with the caption, “Getting ready for some Christmas shopping! #ChristmasTimeIsInTheAir.”
She didn’t forget about all of her friends celebrating Hanukkah, though, tweeting that same day, “To all my lambs celebrating Hanukkah, chag urim sameach!"
Kristin Cavallari has been spending the holidays with her adorable little dog, Brando, who she tweeted pictures of twice over the last few days. The first time, a picture of him in an adorable reindeer costume complete with ears and a red collar with the caption, “My little reindeer,” and then yesterday she sent out this equally endearing photo of her pup cuddled up in a new Christmas sweater, with the caption, “Brando’s Christmas sweater. He’s so festive.”
Infamous talk show host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a picture last week to express her excitement to spend time with singer and “The Voice” judge Christina Aguilera this holiday season – in a very interesting, Madonna-inspired Christmas sweater. DeGeneres tweeted, “There’s no one like @TheRealXtina. Especially not in this sweater. She’s on Friday!”
She would sweep the competition in an ugly sweater party in that get-up.
Last week, “Modern Family” star and activist Jesse Tyler Ferguson tweeted a picture of him and Emmy award-winning British television producer Nigel Lythgoe with Santa Clause with the caption, “Lighting the @ChildrensLA Christmas Tree with Santa and @dizzyfeet. All this time I thought Nigel WAS Santa!”
And last but certainly not least is what may be many of our (a.k.a ladies’) favorite. Newlyweds Courtney Mazza, a Broadway dancer, and actor and show host Mario Lopez decorated their Christmas tree in an especially eye-catching way – with Courtney sneaking up behind her new hubby and taking a twitpic of him in his undies as he places the star upon the top of the tree as their daughter Gia holds a step-ladder below.
Courtney captions the picture with, “My husband looks hot rockin his @RatedMOfficial with his little elf…#lovethem.”
To see the rest of the risqué image, you’ll have to go see for yourself!
So from your favorite celebrities’ homes to yours, happy holidays!
