Holly, jolly and still together! Your favorite Bachelor and Bachelorette couples celebrated the holidays this year with festive flair. While season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell spent time apart with their respective loved ones, season 12 Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and fiance Jordan Rodgers traveled from Tennessee to Texas to be with both sides of the family.

JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers

The couple, whose engagement was revealed this past summer, first celebrated the holidays with Rodgers’ side of the family in Tennessee. “Family vacations aren’t complete without embarrassing outfits,” the SEC Network analyst captioned a photo of the family ice-skating in Chattanooga. “This year mom picked everyone’s out #shittersfull Not fair my little elf @joelle_fletcher looks cute in anything!”

The pair then spent Christmas Day in Dallas with her parents. “First family Christmas photo,” Fletcher captioned a snapshot of herself with Rodgers. “(Mom accidentally (or not) bought all the guys womens onesies…Ended up being a highlight of the night 😂… See @benpatton photo for a good laugh).”

Fletcher’s big brother Ben posted an equally hilarious photo of the entire fam wearing coordinating pajamas and onesies.

The Bachelor and his fiancee seemingly spent the holidays apart this year. Bushnell shared an image of herself kissing Higgins. “Missin my honey,” she wrote on Christmas Eve. The blogger, though, wasn’t lonely as she was surrounded by her siblings.

Like Bushnell, Higgins shared a snap of his beloved fiancee to mark the season. “There was a @laurenbushnell sighting in the cold!” he wrote. “Merry Christmas weekend from @laurenbushnell and I.#LoveWins #jesusisthereasonfortheseason.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth

The season 11 Bachelorette and her winner shared the same risqué family photo from their home in Nashville. “Shirts optional Christmas at the Boothstowes,” Bristowe captioned a photo of herself shirtless with her future husband. Booth added, “Santa is good. #MerryChristmas.”
