From the slopes of the ski resort, the actor, his daughter Ella, and his son Benjamin shared their Christmas greeting with the world.

As part of his Christmas celebrations, John Travolta is taking his family on an exciting vacation to a winter wonderland.

While spending time with his two children, daughter Ella Bleu, 23, and son Benjamin, 13, the movie actor, who has been nominated for two Academy Awards, posted a holiday greeting on Instagram on Christmas Day. Additionally, he shared the message with his followers.

As the three individuals, all of whom were dressed in winter attire, snuggled up against the cold while spending the holiday on the ski slopes, they stood together for a snapshot that would make their family seem very happy.

“Merry Christmas to everyone, we love you!!” Travolta served as the caption for the touching photograph.

Kelly Preston, Travolta’s late wife, passed away in 2020 after a long and courageous fight with breast cancer. Travolta and his late wife are the parents of their two children.

Travolta disclosed a near passing incident that inspired his engagement with the initiative during a screening of his new Disney+ film The Shepherd, which took place one month prior to the publication of the wholesome Christmas message.

During the journey from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Rockland, Maine, on Thanksgiving Day in 1992, Travolta encountered “a total electrical failure” when he was piloting a business aircraft with his family on board. The route went from Rockland to Fort Lauderdale.

“I knew what it felt like to absolutely think you’re going to pass away,” the actor, who is 69 years old, recounted (via Variety) at the screening that took place in London. Despite the fact that I had two decent jet engines, I did not have any instrumentation, electronics, or anything else. I had the impression that it was over.

According to The Washington Post, Preston was on board with their son Jett, who was seven months old at the time of his loss that occurred in 2009 as a result of a seizure. The occasion was Jett’s first Thanksgiving, and they were on their way to their island vacation house in Maine to celebrate there.

Travolta said that a “miracle” took place at the precise moment when he was under the impression that he was about to crash the Gulfstream II turbojet. After that, as if by some miracle, we plummeted in accordance with the regulations to a lower height. When I spotted the monument in Washington, District of Columbia, I realized that Washington National Airport was located just next to it, and I decided to make a landing there.

Travolta was 38 years old at the time of his near-passing experience, which served as the impetus for him to adapt Frederick Forsyth’s book The Shepherd, which was published in 1975, into a film that was produced by Disney+ and titled The Shepherd. The narrative of the novel follows a young pilot in the Royal Air Force who is returning home for the holiday season. In a manner that is analogous to the horrific story told by Travolta, the young pilot, Freddie Hooke, who is represented by Ben Radcliffe, likewise experiences a complete electrical breakdown. What is Freddie’s miracle? It is a pilot, portrayed by Travolta, who suddenly appears out of nowhere and leads the rookie pilot to a safe landing.

“When I read [Forsyth’s] book, it resonated even more because of this experience I had personally had,” according to Travolta.
