For Keanu Reeves, Christmas is a time for family and friends to get together. "I love Christmas shopping, actually," says the star of The Matrix trilogy. "I save it 'till the last second and do some mad dash through the streets, but I really enjoy that part of it. As a kid, I used to try to unwrap gifts (early) and my parents had to hide them, but then I got over that. I grew up in Toronto, Canada, so there was always the winter climate and I really enjoyed getting together with friends and going out in the snow tobogganing and stuff, and it meant no school. I really liked that there was no school."
