Jana Kramer has revealed that she’s staying positive even though she won’t have her children with her on Christmas Eve after divorcing Mike Caussin.
The 39-year-old singer opened up about her Christmas plans on Saturday on Instagram Stories while answering questions from her fans.

‘So, I’ll come back from that vacation [on] Christmas Eve. But I’m just gonna pretend like it’s a normal regular day and not Christmas Eve because it’s gonna make me sad. But I’ll pick them up Christmas Day at noon, and then that’s going to be Christmas Eve,’ she added.
Jana told her roughly 2 million followers on Instagram that the children will then follow their normal Christmas Eve traditions.
‘So we’ll put out the cookies for Santa, we’ll leave him a letter and stuff for the reindeer, and Santa, because it’s magic, he’s going to come Christmas night. So the next day I’ll be able to see them run down the stairs, and they’ll see the presents Santa left for them,’ she shared.
‘So we’re making it our own this year, and I’m really excited about it,’ Jana added.

Jana also was asked by a follower about how her children felt splitting the holiday between their parents.
‘From the moment I signed the divorce papers, I was dreading this holiday. ‘Cause I knew the first holiday I had them Christmas Eve night and I always knew that this one was going to be the first [I was alone] and it was going to be extremely hard,’ Jana admitted while cutting a cucumber.
‘Santa’s magic and I have to have that frame of mind ‘cause I’d rather be positive and excited with them then be super sad on Christmas Eve not having them,’ Jana said.
