It is Christmas Day and what is more attractive than cookies and gifts during this time of the year is pictures that show how your favourite stars are celebrating the day. 

Many celebrities, from Brazilian model Adriana Lima to "Safe Haven" star Josh Duhamel, have shared their very own Christmas pictures on social media.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima topped our list of the best celebrity Christmas pictures. The picture she posted on Instagram hints that the model, who announced separation from husband of five years basketball player Marko Jarić in May 2014, is in a flirty mood.

She wore crimson lipstick to match the Christmas theme and also donned a Santa Claus hat that had "Naughty" written on it. She shared a second picture of her giant and beautifully decorated Christmas tree, in front of which stood her two daughters, 5-year-old Valentina and 2-year-old Sienna who were dressed as elves.

"It is adorable!" Adriana captioned her picture: "Feliz Natal! Merry Christmas! I love you all! Thanks for support!".

Another Victoria's Secret angel Alessandro Ambrosio, in her Christmas picture, was surrounded by a number of Santa Clauses. She looked elegant and happy as she posed with them. Ambrosio captioned the photo: "?????? I guess I'm getting lots of gifts this year !!! #hohoho #FelizNatal #MerryChristmas #Erechim,' Alessandra wrote in the caption."

Meanwhile, Channing Tatum and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum showed how festive they were feeling by sharing a close-up snap, in which Jenna and Channing Tatum wore twin Santa outfits. They are seen sitting in their car, most probably headed to a Christmas party. "Happy holidays from the Tatums!"Jenna captioned the photo.

"Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain showed off her baking skills posting a picture of her self-baked vegan cookies. "Gotta leave something out for Santa #Christmas #vegan #cookies #favoritechristmastradition," Chastain wrote. 

Seems like actress Bella Thorne is also trying to prove something about her baking skills as she shared a picture of herself baking with her friends. The trio are seen wearing Santa hats and visibly in a Christmas mood.

Josh Duhamel, in his Christmas picture on Instagram, is seen posing with life-size toy soldiers in front of a huge fully-lit Christmas tree.

"Troy" star Diane Kruger shared a picture of her partner Joshua Jackson relaxing on their sunny patio, which she captioned: "The calm before the storm...sous-chef Jackson having a drink at sunset...plonk..my heart might give out #heaven#bestchristmas#."

Meanwhile, Denise Richards went skiing with a friend. She shared one picture of a snow-covered mountain that was captioned: "Gonna be a white Christmas!" Another picture that she posted was a close up snap of herself with her friend, wearing ski headgears. The picture was posted with the caption: "Off we go..."

And if so many stars are actively contributing to the social media, how can Kim Kardashian lag behind. She posted a throwback snap of her and her sisters wearing matching outfits and accompanying the picture was her short and apt message: "Merry Christmas!"

Neil Patrick Harris of the "How I Met Your Mother" fame did not share his own picture, but of his adorable twins. Dressed in formals, Harper Grace Burtka-Harris and Gideon Scott Burtka-Harris are seen munching on some Christmas delicacies at a party.
