Christmas is nearly here and tons of celebs are taking vacations and breaks from their busy lifestyles to spend quality time with friends and family. This is an especially good time to keep your eyes peeled for local stars who grew up in or around your area. Not all Canadians are coming back though because Shania Twain's Switzerland home is where she'll be spending her holidays. 

The country singer was born in Windsor, Ontario with the name Eilleen Regina Edwards. She was raised quite a bit away up north in Timmins with her mother and two sisters following her parents' divorce.

Twain has been in the music industry since she got discovered as a teenager fresh out of high school. She's been on four tours starting in the late '90s and her current residency in Las Vegas is her second one. 

Let's Go! began on December 6 and will run until 2021 so the 54-year-old will be living in Nevada for the next year or so. 

She recently shared on Instagram that she's back in the country that her husband Frédéric Thiébaud is from.

The caption says "Home" with the Swizterland flag emoji. She continued with "now it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit."

The Come On Over singer lives with her hubby of eight years and their pups in La Tour-de-Peilz, according to a recent interview she had with L'Illustré.

In mid-October, the superstar posted a photo of her "Leaving the Ontario fall leaves" likely after visiting her family in her small hometown. 

The Canadian stays true to her roots and often posts photos showing love to the country.

When she's back at her Las Vegas residency, you can find Twain at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood.
