For many of us the festive season is the only time we get to relax after a stressful year.
This makes December the best month to go on holiday.
Last year, however, the Covid-19 pandemic hindered travel like never before.
Many local celebrities, who usually use this time to go overseas and share envy worthy images on Instagram, had to change their vacation plans.
Some of our faves, took this opportunity to travel locally before we went back to level 3 of the lockdown.
While others went to the beautiful Mother City and basked in the sun, some preferred to spend time in nature and visited some of the most beautiful parts of the country.
See where some of your favourite celebs spent their holiday and down time this past December.
