Whether it\u2019s parties or church events or cooking (oh my!), shopping or wrapping or snow shoveling (oh why?), the stars of \u201cGeneral Hospital\u201d and \u201cDays of our Lives\u201d will be quite busy this holiday season! But don\u2019t worry: Before the casts took off for their fun-filled Christmas break, Soap Opera Network managed to catch a few actors and get the scoop on how they plan to spend their holiday vacays!\r\n\r\nQUICK JUMP:\r\n\r\n\tGalen Gering (Rafe Hernandez, "DAYS")\r\n\tThaao Penghlis\u00a0(Victor Cassidine, "GH")\r\n\tShawn Christian\u00a0(Daniel Jonas, \u201cDAYS\u201d)\r\n\tKate Mansi (Abigail Deveraux, \u201cDAYS\u201d)\r\n\tLauren Koslow (Kate Roberts, "DAYS")\r\n\tParry Shen (Brad Cooper, "GH")\r\n\tCasey Moss (JJ Deveraux, "DAYS")\r\n\tMeredith Scott Lynn (Anne Milbauer, "DAYS")\r\n\tWally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis, "DAYS"; ex-Ned Ashton, "GH")\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGalen Gering\r\nRafe Hernandez, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"I just finished traveling, so I\u2019m going to stay here. I\u2019ve got all kinds of family coming into town, [my wife's] mom and my father-in-law, and then my dad and his wife. I\u2019m still trying to track my mom down, so we\u2019ll see. So they\u2019ll all be here. And we just got a puppy, so that\u2019s making things a little crazy. We have the tree up and around the tree is a train set, a holiday train set, that we always set up, and it\u2019s cool. And it has a village you set up, and we usually add something to that every year. And the kids totally love it. And then we have this ornament tradition where we introduce a new and meaningful ornament depending on what happens that year. Our tree is kind of this lineage tree. And we\u2019ll be cooking Christmas Eve and Christmas Day,\u00a0 because we just can\u2019t get enough!"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThaao Penghlis\r\nVictor Cassidine, "GH"\r\n\r\n"[I'll be] visiting [my] sister in Australia."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nShawn Christian\r\nDaniel Jonas, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"I am flying my mother in and will be taking her to the beach, getting her out of the snow in the Midwest. And I think I\u2019m going to take her to Disneyland, too. They\u2019ve got a fun holiday theme."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nKate Mansi\r\nAbigail Deveraux, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"My family lives here, so we go all over: San Diego and then La Jolla and Calabasas, so we kind of do the stopping everywhere to visit grandparents, that whole thing. So that\u2019s really fun. And my mom just got two new puppies, so we\u2019re going to stay there, which will be fun. And then I\u2019m going to Cabo [San Luca, Mexico] over New Years with friends."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nLauren Koslow\r\nKate DiMera, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"We\u2019re going to be home for the holidays, at home on the farm. We have a lot of animals, so for us to leave home is a very special, involved event. So we\u2019re home this year, and it\u2019s beautiful because we have the time to just chill. We\u2019ll cook and have extended family come. But I think on New Years Eve, we\u2019re going away for one day to the beach, just to get away and be in a hotel."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nParry Shen\r\nBrad Cooper, "GH"\r\n\r\n"Finding different spots in the house to hide that darn 'Elf on the Shelf'!"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCasey Moss\r\nJJ Deveraux, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"I believe on the 23rd of December, I\u2019m going to Mammoth, California, for a snowboarding trip. And then I believe for New Years, I\u2019m going to Belize!"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nMeredith Scott Lynn\r\nAnne Milbauer, "DAYS"\r\n\r\n"This year, I\u2019m going to be housesitting for a really close friend with a fabulous house up in the hills. I\u2019m just going to stay in town while my sister and mother and nieces all go to Hawaii without me. That\u2019s the family trip, but I\u2019m going to stay here in town. The house I\u2019m going to be staying in is pretty fantastic, and when everyone leaves town, Los Angeles is a very fun, livable city, when it\u2019s less crowded. So I like to be here. You can drive down the 405 at more than 11 miles an hour. It\u2019s a treat!"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWally Kurth\r\nJustin Kiriakis, "DAYS;" ex-Ned Ashton, "GH"\r\n\r\n"We\u2019re going to be having Christmas here, and then for New Year\u2019s we\u2019ll be going to Montana. We\u2019ll be heading to Big Sky, Montana, where I grew up, and we\u2019ll be spending New Years up in 'the North Pole,' as my son calls it. We\u2019ll be up about 9,000 feet in the mountains. I grew up in Billings, and in the summertime, we used to spend summers up there, and I used to go up there and ski and stuff. So it\u2019s sort of a white Christmas, but on New Years. I really miss it. Just the mountains and the solitude and the space."
