FROM Christmas celebrations to weddings for the boys.

The Melbourne players spread far and wide on their holidays, making the most of their time off amidst a gruelling pre-season.

While plenty of training still had to be done, the AFL and AFLW players took the chance to get away for a couple of weeks before returning to the club.

Check out exactly what the Christmas break entailed below.

Christian Petracca made a young fan's Christmas one to remember,
as plenty of fun was had all-round,
ending with Alex Neal-Bullen taking home 'Best Dressed'.
Libby Birch went on a trip with the family,
and Nathan Jones took his kids overseas.
Harry Petty caught some monster fish,
Kade Chandler hit the farm,
Maddy Guerin took to the road,
and Kyle Dunkley trained in the sun.
Max Gawn tied the knot,
as did Michael Hibberd,
with plenty of the boys enjoying the occasion.
A baby is on the way for Jack Viney,
while Daisy Pearce is working hard after having twins last year.
Unfortunately, Katherine Smith's break ended on a sour note,
while the boys started a chain of donations to a worthy cause.
