There were some pictures of them celebrating from about five years ago. I would presume that they celebrate it together, but they don't release pictures every year.

If we want Christmas photos of the Luxembourg royals we need to look for pictures from December 6th each year. Holidays are different in each country and St. Nikolaus day which is when the real Christmas type celebrations happen in Luxembourg. They attend concerts, auction Christmas trees, attend mass and spend time with families on December 24/25 but in Luxembourg it is not what we in various other countries consider to be "Christmas" celebrations.

In a magazine I saw that they tape-worm a chalet in Swiss, and they were passing the Christmas there

Could be wrong but it seems this Christmas rather than recording a message The Grand Duke gave an interview instead.

RTL.lu - Lëtzebuerg - "2015 war kee richteg schéint Joer"
Intervention de Son Altesse Royale le Grand-Duc à la veille de Noël - Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg - Décembre 2015

And a print out of the interview
Intervention de Noël de Son Altesse Royale le Grand-Duc (version FR) - Cour Grand-Ducale de Luxembourg - Décembre 2015

Amongst other things discussed:

The Paris attacks and also (interestingly IMO how they spoke to their children about staying safe)
The Refugee crisis in Europe
Luxembourg's Presidency of the EU
The Paris Climate Change Summit
The Grand Duke 95th birthday - apparently Grand Duke Jean is doing "extremely well"
