How would you say "are you going anywhere for Christmas"

How would you say "are you going anywhere for Christmas?".

My guess is something along the lines of:

Nǐ shèngdàn jié yào qù nǎlǐ?
你圣诞节要去哪里?

But that really translates to "where are you going to go on Christmas?"

Here is a variant of your question from Yoyo. "How do you plan to spend Christmas this year?"

jīn nián shèng dàn jié nǐ dǎ suàn zěn me guò?
How would you say "are you going anywhere for Christmas"

I wanted to add the Hanzi:

jīn nián shèng dàn jié nǐ dǎ suàn zěn me guò?
今年圣诞节你打算怎么过

Since 打算 (dǎ suàn) means to plan or to intend, I am guessing this is like saying "what are your plans for this Christmas".

What does the 怎么过 (zěn me guò) mean exactly?

A literal translation of zěn me guò would be "how to spend". In this case, guò means the spending (or passing) of time.
