Formidable winter storms can't chill these celebs' spirits.

Emma Thompson, who stars in Netflix's Matilda The Musical, recently shared what she loves most about Christmas.

"I like it all," Thompson says. "I like decorating the tree. I like singing carols. I like going to do carol services. I'm going to do a reading at Westminster Abbey (in London). There isn't much about Christmas that I don't like."

Her actor husband Greg Wise, on the other hand, would prefer to avoid yuletide cheer altogether: "He'd rather go away somewhere else," Thompson jokes. "A cave, basically. Undecorated."

Here's how other stars are ringing in the holidays this year:

Celine Dion wishes 'love, happiness, the best of health' this Christmas

The About Damn Time singer celebrated Christmas Eve by sharing a candy cane-inspired photo shoot with her Instagram followers.

In the sexy snaps, Lizzo rocks a red-and-white-coloured wig and garland-adorned bustier against a red curtain backdrop.

On Friday (Dec 23), the beauty mogul posted pictures of her visit to the shelter, where she was joined by sister Khloe Kardashian, daughter North West, and nieces True Thompson and Dream Kardashian.

"We were also able to provide many essentials they would need this holiday season along with a beauty day and family portraits with their families and headshots for job interviews," Kardashian captioned the Instagram post.

"We also met with women in Start Up Sisterhood, a program that helps give these women the tools and mentorship they need to start their own small businesses."

Duff is sending out an SOS. On Dec 21, the Come Clean singer shared a playful snap of her family Christmas card, where she and her husband, musician Matthew Koma, are tied up in Christmas lights and strapped to chairs with tape over their mouths.

Duff's 10-year-old son, Luca, holds the lights, while their young daughters – Banks, 4, and Mae, 1 – smile mischievously in the foreground. "Happy holidays," the card reads. "All is not calm." – USA Today/Tribune News Service
