Heidi Klum: Neighbors think you are crazy because of German tradition

Heidi Klum likes to celebrate Christmas in Los Angeles with German traditions. Your neighbors can’t do much with a custom in particular.

Los Angeles – Christmas is important to Heidi Klum. As the 48-year-old now reveals, the shooting for the new season of “Germany’s Next Top Model” will pause during the holidays. But how does the mom of four actually celebrate Christmas with her family in Los Angeles? RUHR24 * knows more.

Heidi Klum loves Christmas: shooting for GNTM is interrupted

Not least with her Christmas song “Wonderland”, Heidi Klum * has proven that she is a big Christmas fan. In an interview with the news agency spot on news , she added: “We all love Christmas!”

Not even Heidi Klum’s heart project “Germany’s Next Top Model” can shake it. During the Christmas season, there is no work on the GNTM set so that “everyone can visit their family,” says Heidi Klum. For the model, who was born in Bergisch Gladbach, this means: back to her adopted home in Los Angeles.

But how does the family around husband Tom Kaulitz and the children Leni, Henry, Johan and Lou actually celebrate Christmas in California? With German traditions, as Heidi Klum revealed. First of all, it is decorated. “We squeeze cloves into oranges, the windows are sprayed white, stars cut out, cookies baked and a lot of mulled wine is drunk.”

And who thought the music video for Heidi Klum’s Christmas song “Wonderland” with a white carriage and children’s choir was already kitschy: There is more. Because, according to Heidi, the Klum family also includes Christmas pajamas and pointed hats (more celebrity news * at RUHR24).

The neighbors of Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz can only make limited use of these German traditions, as the 48-year-old admitted. “By the way, the Americans think that the oranges and cloves are crazy. Just like our chandelier with blown out Easter eggs. “

Oranges and cloves are part of the Christmas tradition for Heidi Klum.

And as if that weren’t exotic enough, the Klum family celebrates a day earlier than the entire neighborhood. Because in the US most people don’t celebrate Christmas until December 25th. Here, too, Heidi Klum remains true to her roots. As usual in Germany, the family opens the presents on Christmas Eve.

Heidi Klum about Christmas in Los Angeles: Regardless of the weather, the fireplace is burning

“We all get up very early because the youngest cannot wait. Then we unpack the presents and spend the whole day with them, says Heidi Klum. There is also “a lot to eat” and the fireplace is burning – despite the not so wintry temperatures in Los Angeles.

In an interview with spot on news , Heidi Klum also revealed the riddle about the re-release of her song “Wonderland”. The 48-year-old doesn’t want to fill her pockets with the digital version that has now been released. “I will donate all of the proceeds,” said Heidi Klum.

There is a completely different thought behind the re-publication. “If at some point I am no longer there, my grandchildren can later say: ‘This is the song that grandma once made for Christmas.'” * RUHR24 is part of the IPPEN.MEDIA editorial network.
