The holidays are finally upon us — Hanukkah kicks off on the 24th (and lasts throughout the week), Christmas on the 25th, Kwanzaa on the 26th (and lasts throughout the week), New Year’s Eve on the 31st… The next week or so is gonna be like the gift that keeps on giving, and we are PUMPED!

To celebrate the festive season, we caught up with one of Disney Channel’s newest stars, Jenna Ortega, from Stuck in the Middle and Elena of Avalor.

“Being part of the Disney Channel family is a blessing,” the 14-year-old actress told us over the summer. “Ever since I was younger, it was my dream to be on a Disney Channel show. I would tell my parents, ‘Just you wait, I’m gonna be on a Disney one day.’ They thought I was crazy, but they still supported me and allowed me to follow my dreams.”

And now, she’s capping off her year with some fun insights into her celebrations. Read on to find out all about her holiday favorites:
