Paul Pierce Of The Boston Celtics Talks Holiday Traditions
“We even put reindeer outfits on the dogs!”
On Sunday, Dec. 9, Paul Pierce teamed up with American Express outside Faneuil Hall in Boston to raise money for the Toys for Tots Foundation. Bleacher Report was lucky enough to be granted some time with the Celtics’ superstar before he was inundated with autographs and photos from a never-ending stream of fans and supporters. For every American Express Gift Card sold at the event, $10 was donated to Toys for Tots. Pierce was on scene from 12:30-2:00 p.m. greeting a slew of Bostonians out doing their holiday shopping. We spoke with Pierce, who is spending his 15th holiday season in Boston, about what kind of traditions he enjoys most during the holiday season.

So Paul, we know you can get really into Halloween. You’ve dressed up with your family and teammates as the Power Puff Girls, a frog and Buzz Lightyear. Do you ever don costumes at this time of year?
Actually, I do. I dress up as Santa and my daughters dress dress up as little helpers and we even put reindeer outfits on the dogs!
Awesome! So what is the No. 1 thing on Paul Pierce’s Christmas List?
Oh man, the top thing on my Christmas List is probably just to win another NBA Championship.
