Carrie Underwood opened up about her Thanksgiving traditions and why she’s lucky enough to have two Thanksgivings a year. The mom of two spoke out about how she celebrates the holidays with her family in a new interview where she admitted that she doesn’t have too many traditions but, thanks to her Canadian husband, sees Thanksgiving once in October and again in November.

“I’m kind of lucky,” Carrie told her record label in a new interview, per 93.1 WPOC radio. “I get two Thanksgivings because I also get to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with my husband’s family.”

Carrie married Canadian hockey star Mike Fisher back in 2010. The athlete heads home to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, which takes place on the second Monday in October every year. This ends up working out really well because Carrie is sure to never miss the family gathering one way or another. Due to her very busy work schedule, sometimes Carrie only gets to celebrate Thanksgiving once, she explained.

“If I don’t hit one [Thanksgiving], I’ll definitely be able to get the other one,” she said, as she noted that her thriving career as one of the biggest stars in country music sometimes means she can’t head to her home state of Oklahoma for the holidays to spend time with her family.

“I find myself a lot of time working on or around Thanksgiving or unable to get home or whatever,” the “Something In The Water” singer, who now lives with her husband and two children in Tennessee, said. “We try to be together, but sometimes that just doesn’t work out.”

Carrie also revealed that she and her family back home in the Sooner State don’t tend to have too many traditions that they do every year without fail when it comes to Turkey Day, but there is something that she never misses year after year whether she’s home in Checotah, Oklahoma, or not.

“We eat. I eat a lot every year on Thanksgiving,” Carrie joked of the one thing that never seems to change for her at this time of the year, as she quipped, “I never skip that tradition.”

There is no doubting that the stunning star has a whole lot to be thankful for this year.

Carrie recently became teary as she listed many of the things she is giving thanks for during an appearance at the 2019 American Music Awards while she accepted two awards.
