Aerosmith star Joe Perry and his family celebrate the festive season by watching Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation movie and U.S. classic A Christmas Story.

The rocker admits the double film marathon has become a big part of his family's Christmas Day festivities.

He explains, " We always open a gift the night before Christmas. Now that the kids are older, we wake up and have brunch in front of the fire while opening the traditional Christmas stockings that were handmade by their grandmother and have hung on the mantle for years.

"We take our time opening gifts and do not rip through them, making the day last as long as possible. We usually eat appetizers Christmas Day because we normally have a big Christmas Eve dinner, although it varies from year to year. We usually end up watching Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation and A Christmas Story with our family later in the day."
