It has been quite a year for Hannah Brown. She was crowned the winner of Dancing With The Stars Season 28 just two weeks ago. Now The Bachelorette beauty is ready for some family time.
The reality TV star is literally counting down the days until Christmas because it means she will be back in Alabama with her family. Brown is looking forward to enjoying some time away from the spotlight to hang with those nearest and dearest to her.
“I’m just excited to go back home. We always have a pickle, where you have to find the pickle on the tree. My mom’s really into Christmas ornaments and our tree’s lavish and beautiful. You find the pickle on Christmas day. It’s a whole thing. It’s a pickle ornament,” she shared with E! News at iHeartRadio’s 102.7 KIIS FM 2019 Jingle Ball.

I don’t think I’ve ever been as happy for another human. Winning DWTS became a dream that I never thought I would have. For Alan, this is something he has dedicated his life to and it was really special to be hugging his neck while this dream came true. Thank you for your passion, your time, and your hard work. Thank you for caring so much about me and choreographing dances to make me shine. This really was an incredible experience and I’m very grateful to have you in my life— Now I guess we are stuck bugging the crap out of each other and hugging it out when we are over our stupid arguments. Woooo! #teamalanbamahannah forever
The 25-year-old admitted there is one family tradition she looks forward to the most. It is a tradition Brown has loved since she was a child.
“We still have Santa. Santa still comes to my house, you know, if you believe, you will receive. Waking up on Christmas morning and seeing what Santa brought, we still do that, and it’s so fun,” Brown revealed.
On Christmas, the reality star and her family spend the night playing board games. Brown called it the “perfect way to end the holiday season.” Another favorite tradition of hers is, of course, watching those cheesy Christmas movies.
“Watching those Hallmark Christmas movies while I have to wrap all the presents because mom has put me in charge of that, that’s pretty fun too,” the Bachelor Nation beauty admitted.
Hannah Brown is looking forward to having a good old-fashioned Christmas with her family but what about after the holiday season? What is next for the TV personality, who spent part of the year looking for love and part of it dancing in the famous ballroom?
Next up is an appearance on Peter Weber’s season of The Bachelor. Promos are teasing her return but do not give away if she is back for the long haul or just a quick, dramatic minute. Then she will embark on a Dancing With the Stars tour, which will keep her busy for the first part of 2020.
After that, the sky is the limit for Brown, who has made a splash in the reality TV world this year.
