Stability is Key

Johnson could spend his holiday season anywhere in the world, but he focuses on stability for his girls during the holidays. Johnson is an actual girl dad to Simone, 22, Jasmine, 8, and Tiana, 5.

When looking at the importance of the holiday season for his family, Johnson wants to ensure his girls’ stability. Because of this, his family spends Christmas at home.

Stability in the Johnson household means having a few family traditions. Johnson explained how Christmas Eve works for the girls.

“So on Christmas Eve, the little ones do their best to stay up as long as they can, so usually around 11:00 or 11:30.” He continued, “They finally fall asleep, and then Santa comes. And then when Santa comes, that’s a whole couple-of-hour process. So that’s our tradition now: to wake up and live Christmas and the holidays through the girls.”

It isn’t about how many gifts they receive or what exotic location they can visit; instead, it is all about stability and security for Johnson and his family during the holiday season.

Johnson’s History

During the same interview, Johnson explained where this focus on stability comes from. Christmas was different every year for his family growing up since they moved around a lot.

“Sometimes it was a small tree, like a small tree, and then sometimes a little bigger tree. And I’m an only child, so it was a small family, a small group,” he continued. “So our tradition was just to be together on Christmas.”

Now that Johnson has his own family and can create stability for them, he makes that the focus of the holiday season.

As we prepare for the holidays, Dwayne Johnson’s story is an excellent reminder of what is truly important this holiday season.


About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
