Given the fact that the stars of The Vampire Diaries spend so much time together while filming their hit CW series, we expect them to remain inseparable throughout the holiday season. But when production halts so that everyone can spend some quality time with friends and family, that means the sexy actors and actresses can escape Atlanta and head home. So who exactly is Nina Dobrev spending Christmas with?

It looks like Nina has jetted off to spend some time with her bestie Julianne Hough and the rest of the Hough family. Nina has been filling up her social media with photos of her with Julianne and her former beau (and Julianne’s bro) Derek Hough, hitting the slopes and having a grand time. So it doesn’t surprise us that Nina posted a photo of her and Jules trimming the Christmas tree.

We have to admit that we’re a little surprised that Nina isn’t spending time with a certain someone. There have been reports that Nina is back together with ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder. And while that would fill us with glee, it’s seeming more and more far-fetched. Not only is Nina not spending Christmas with her Vampire Diaries co-star, but she didn’t spend Thanksgiving with him either. We’re clinging to the fact that she was present for the birth of his dog Nietzsche’s puppies.

And, hey, there’s always New Year’s Eve!

Are you surprised Nina isn’t spending the holidays with her Vampire Diaries family or rumored boyfriend, Ian? Hit the comments and let us know!
