"We're instituting it this year because when the kids are [younger than] one, it doesn't really matter", she said, adding that last year, when Wyatt was a toddler, it was all just "too much". Now they've spoken out about their feelings on Christmas, and specifically Christmas presents.
Kunis told Entertainment Tonight the children are too young to truly comprehend getting a ton of gifts on one day. She explained that when she came to the U.S.as a kid, despite being Jewish, she and her family were welcome to participate in Christmas traditions. The couple is big on teaching their kids life lessons early on, and Kunis said she's passing those values on to little Wyatt: "What I want my daughter to learn from me is the value of hard work". They're all about taking advantage of family time-but unlike past year, when the kiddos were spoiled rotten by their grandparents, the stars' plan is to Kondo their kids' Christmas with a genius new rule.
The Bad Moms star said it was the children's grandparents that go wild over Christmas presents and who like to spoil them. "Who cares? My kids are healthy, I'm happy". Growing up in Soviet Union-era Ukraine, Mila's own Christmases were somewhat subdued, and that's contributed to motivating her to make holidays a special family experience. "Whether it's Easter, which we've now all accepted into our Jewish household, or Christmas, it doesn't matter", said Kunis. We didn't give her anything - it was the grandparents.
But while she has it down pat now, in an interview with TODAY, Kunis admitted that it was very different the first time around. According to her, "the children do not appreciate more the gifts". They don't even know what they're expecting; they're just expecting stuff. We know their Christmas is going to be filled with a lot of love. "There's enough a**holes in this world!" she joked.
