Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have gifted fans with the perfect Christmas present.

A surprise wedding? Not quite.

Although we wish.

Instead, the famous and adorable couple posed together for a number of very cute and cuddly photos over the holiday weekend.

These aren’t an exchanging of vows, but we’ll take what we can get!

Despite being an A-List pop artist who is never afraid to speak her mind, and an actor who starred in one of the highest-grossing movie franchises in history, Miley and Liam typically choose to stay far below the celebrity gossip radar.

They don’t make public declarations about their love or even make public appearances very often.

But that appears to be changing a bit of late, as the stars posed for a hilariously awkward photo as part of a bigger group late last week.

And now they’ve taken us behind the scenes of their Christmas celebration.

First, as you can see above, Cyrus and Hemsworth rocked some seriously ugly sweaters for the occasion.

Which we mean in the nicest, most complimentary way possible.

We especially love Miley’s light bulb-based tribute to her Lord and Savior.

“Happy birthday Jesus,” Hemsworth captioned the image above, which also featured himself in a garment covered with images of candy canes and Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.

The photo appears to have been taken at a family gathering with Hemsworth’s older brother Chris and his wife, Elsa Pataky.

Because the latter shared the following picture on her Instagram account:

“Fun Christmas Party with my family ! Fiesta de Navidad con mi family!!! 😜🎉 happy Christmas! Feliz Navidad!” Pataky wrote as a caption.

Miley and Liam their romance in January of this year after calling off their engagement in 2013.

The artist has been seen spotted out often with her Neil Lane engagement ring since they reconciled, even confirming that the engagement is back on during a recent chat with Ellen DeGeneres.

She told the talk show host at the time that she doesn’t always wear the ring because it isn’t “my aesthetic,” but that she’ll do so occasionally “because you love me,” speaking of Liam.

AWWWW, right?

Along with the precious photo above, Miley and Liam shared one more… along with an important message.

“Thinking about how lucky we are to spend Doras first Xmas together as a fam!” Cyrus captioned the following snapshot adding:

“Our big and beautiful rescue! What a perfect holiday present for your family to ADOPT & SAVE a life! Think about it! If you go for it send me pictures you know I am obsessed with animals! Obvi! #adoptdontshop.”

What a perfect holiday message.

We hope many people out there follow it.
