Agi and Suze's Christmas Countdown: Interview with Anniek & Giveaway!

Interview with Anniek

What’s your best Christmas memory?

I actually love every Christmas I have ever had. I'm a family person and I love to be with my family on these special days. We are all very close. There is nothing like a real Christmas tree in your home with presents underneath and the warm and cozy feeling from just being with one another.

What are your 3 favourite Christmas reads?

A Christmas Carol from Charles Dickens is a book that everyone should have read once in their life! Love that story. 
Unexpected gifts by Elena Aitken. I have reviewed this book before. The magic of Christmas combined with love it doesn’t get any better than that. (This book is also still free on Amazon).

Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale. I have also reviewed this story not long ago. The book really warmed my heart and I absolutely love the way Jenny Hale tells a story.

If you could choose one person, dead or alive, to celebrate a one time special Christmas with, who would you choose and why?

No need to think about this one. Without a doubt: James Bay. I am addicted to his album and to his beautiful voice. He could just sing for me and I would be perfectly happy.

What are your thoughts about Santa?

I love the thought of what Santa represents. My son is too young right now but I absolutely see him on Santa’s lap surrounded by elves and having a wonderful magical time. It would be great to start a new tradition to write a letter to Santa each year just so we could create this magical time for him.

What are your best and worst Christmas gifts and why?

We always have a lots of presents under the tree. My birthday is right after Christmas so it’s double fun for me. My family and close friends know me so well. I am blessed to be given the most incredible gifts. I can’t think of one present that would be the best because even if the gift is a little bit more out of my field of interest it's always the thought that counts. I am not forgetting the fact that I'm blessed with my life and that there are also lots of people and children who are experiencing Christmas in a completely different way. 

Your favourite Christmas song?

When I hear Bianca Ryan with Couldn’t it be Christmas every day I always get a smile on my face and sing along with all I got. (looks a bit funny when I’m driving)

Your favourite Christmas movie?

It isn't really a Christmas movie but it is shown during Christmas every year. All the movies of Harry Potter. In the Netherlands they show them all around Christmas so I love to curl up on the couch and watch them again and again.

Top 3 books that you’re giving as Christmas presents?

Magic Shifts by Ilona Andrews. I didn’t know about this series before but I will definitely be reading this one myself as well.

A Christmas book from Tummy Tom and The very hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Obviously I love to read so I give my son books as well (hoping he will pick up my addiction to books as well) and I also love to give books to my loved ones.

Most favourite and least favourite part of Christmas?

Choosing and decorating the tree is my favorite part. We always have an 'ugly’ tree. One way or the other my husband always comes home with probably the worst looking tree of that year. I don’t mind though because I tell myself that even the less pretty trees want to fulfill their Christmas destiny. Their destiny is to shine bright and proud in people's houses, so we have a place for the trees that are likely not picked.

My least favorite part is to clear out all the Christmas stuff. If it was up to me I would keep all the decorations and the tree all year round!

I must ask, sorry – the best Christmas food is…?

I don’t have a special food connected to just Christmas alone. My biggest weakness is Pizza. I could eat this all day every day (if it wouldn’t fatten me up so much). So whatever time it is during the year pizza will probably be on the menu or will at least be present in the freezer.


One very lucky reader of this blog will receive a kindle copy of one of Anniek's favorite books:

Good luck!


  1. my favourite song is Driving home for Christmas by Chris Rea

  2. Love your thoughts on the Christmas tree. My husband tells people that I move ornaments around daily, but really I don't.

  3. My favorite Christmas memory: I remember when dad would say to us kids, "It’s time to look for the Christmas tree." We would bundle up in our warm snow boots and ski pants, with big scarves that mom made for us around our neck and face,. We would walk out in the deep snow and into the woods to find a tree. Then, happy as a lark, we'd watch dad cut down the most beautiful tree ever. We all dragged it home, falling in the deep snow, and laughing all the way with the dog trailing behind us. To this day, every time I smell pine, I think of dad cutting down the Christmas tree.

  4. Harry Potter makes for ideal Christmas viewing. I had not thought of them in this way before.

  5. the best Christmas food has to be Turkey with stuffing xx

  6. cant beat a marathon of the home alones on Christmas day
