Rojo told United's official website he was aware of the tradition of festive football matches in Britain and was anticipating a "special" atmosphere.
"Obviously, it would be lovely to have a little rest and spend some time with my family, but I understand the tradition during this time. The atmosphere is particularly special in the stadium, so it's something I enjoy."
Rojo said he was targeting trophies next year, with United having been in fine form over recent matches.
"Looking towards 2017, we must play as well as we can and, hopefully win a trophy at some point," he added.
