Jolie-Pitts think of Christmas as travel time

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt don't like to spend Christmas in one place.

The Hollywood couple raise six children together, Maddox, 11, Pax, nine, Zahara, seven, Shiloh, six, and four-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, and when it comes to the festive holidays, they like to travel around the world instead of buying them expensive gifts.

She said: "I love to travel in the holidays, because I feel like I'd rather give the kids the gift of a new country than a box of presents. But I still give them some presents!"

The family are known for their globe-trotting adventures but Angelina says she and Brad have a pact that only one of them will be away from the children at one time so they fit their work schedules around that.

She added: "I have a great partner in Brad and before we had all of our children, we agreed that in order to have a big family, we would never work at the same time.

"When he is shooting a film, I am not filming and I'm home and I'm just focusing on the kids and on occasion I take trips and I do my UN work. Then when I'm working, he does the same, so I don't do all of these things all of the time."
