Matt Damon Shares His Christmas Plans


Christmas presents two days in a row at Matt Damon‘s house!

“We do the Latin American Christmas Eve gift opening and we do the American Christmas morning gift opening,” the 42-year-old Promised Land actor tells PEOPLE about his blended family traditions. “We have this weird fusion for Christmas, but I think it just means more gifts for the kids, so they’re into it.”

Gift giving aside, the daddy-of-four is looking forward to laying low this holiday season with his daughters Alexia, 14, Isabella, 6, Gia, 4, and Stella, 2.

“I’m just going to hang out with my kids,” he says. “We’ve been on the Promised Land train a little bit for the last week or so, and we’re looking forward to just settling down.”
