In our special holiday issue, on sale Monday, December 20, Soaps In Depth has gathered up some of your favorite stars from CBS Daytime for exclusive family portraits and to share what the season means to them and their loved ones.

What should your character get for Christmas?

"A new love, maybe?"

What should your character's New Year's resolution be?

What do you want for Christmas?

"An extremely prosperous 2011 for my family and friends."

What is your New Year's resolution?

"To continue learning that balance of working and being a dad. Prioritizing. They grow so fast, so I want to take advantage of spending time with my children."

RICK HEARST (Whip)

What do you want for Christmas?

"Every year my boys get me the newest version of [the video game] Call Of Duty. I'm not a gamer, but once a year I hunker down for 24 hours straight and I play this game until I beat the novice level. Then I watch the sun come up the next morning. My boys know I love that, so they always give it to me, and I look forward to it."

What is your New Year's resolution?
"My goal for the next year is to get back into the shape that I was prior to my injury. I had a really bad shoulder injury last season snowboarding and it put me back a bit. So I'm hoping to be back in fighting shape by the spring."

MARCY RYLAN (Abby)

What should your character's New Year's resolution be?

"Opening up more in terms of love. The thing she has going with Daniel is it's great and sexy and fun. But she doesn't want to go further than that. I don't think she's being super-vulnerable, and letting herself fall for someone. I want Abby to give in to love and experience all that. That's what I'm looking forward for this character, to let her guard down."

What is your New Year's resolution?

"My resolution is to get to know Los Angeles a little bit more. It's hard to move, and I moved from New York. I'm having a little New York homesickness. When I first moved here I was totally in all baby mode, on maternity leave, and not really getting out and getting to know the city and building a life here, so I think that's going to be my focus for next year is putting down roots and getting to know L.A. There's no reason me and [son] Jackson can't go and take L.A. by storm!"

KATE LINDER (Esther)

What should your character's New Year's resolution be?
"She has a few - to be a better grandmother, to eavesdrop less."
What is your New Year's resolution?
"I want to see my glass as half full - not half empty."

JOSHUA MORROW (Nick)

What do you want for Christmas?
"I can always use tennis shoes. Or tennis clothes. You can never have enough of those things -- tennis shoes and tennis clothes, workout clothes. And books. I like books, too."
