Jon Gosselin Says He’ll Spend Christmas With Kate and the Kids

Sounds like it’s going to be a very special Christmas in the Gosselin household.

Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad Jon Gosselin tells PopEater that, despite the extremely messy nature of  his split with estranged wife Kate, he’ll be spending Christmas with her and the kids.

Jon reveals,

“Christmas Eve and Christmas day are joint-shared custody days, which means we’re both in the house. So we’ll be there.”

And how will the temporarily reunited clan be spending this no-doubt awkward holiday? Despite all the toxic water that’s passed under the bridge, Jon says that he hopes they’ll be able to hold onto their traditions, for the kids’ sake:

“We do stuff outside. I have landscapers, but I still tell them to leave leaves, so we can make a big pile and jump through it …We do stuff like that at Christmas, hanging the stockings. They do the stockings early Christmas morning. Kate makes sticky buns. We keep it all the same. Nothing has changed. That way they have the sense of security with everything that’s going on. But, this year, there’s a lot of paparazzi, so who knows? Every year it’s different.”

Oh, we’re sure it will be a little different this year. Especially if Jon brings his current girlfriend Hailey Glassman along for the ride!

Hopefully they’ll be filming this thing for a future air date. Oh, who are we kidding? Of course they will…
