Interview

1) What's your best Christmas memory?

When we had to have a late Christmas because my Dad was in Japan with the airforce. We went on a christmas shopping spree when he came back and we played mouse trap together.

2) What are your 3 favourite Christmas reads?

Holly Martin's Christmas at Lilac Cottage is my absolute favorite. I haven't read much more then that.

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

My Grandpa on my mother's side. He died when I was twelve, I would like to know him better.

4) What are your thoughts about Santa?

A creepy guy that always wants me to sit on his lap and gets too much pleasure out of it if I do. Yes, there's a story.

5) What are your best and worst Christmas gifts and why? 

My Best Christmas gift was from my husband on our first Christmas together he sent me on a hot or cold hunt for the whole set of Twilight which I really wanted. My worse was the present I had to buy myself and the guy I was seeing at the time reimbursed me and called it his present from him. He's not the man I'm married to now.

6) Your favourite Christmas song?

O Holy Night

7) Your favourite Christmas movie? 

Love at the Christmas Table

8) Top 3 books that you're giving as Christmas presents?

Ellie Alexanders Meet your Baker
Holly Maritn's Christmas at Lilac cottage
On the Go Flower coloring book

9) Most favourite and least favourite part of Christmas? 

My favorite is getting to spend time with family and friends with all the festivities. My least favorite is you spend weeks and weeks preparing and it's over in a blink of an eye.

10) I must ask, sorry - the best Christmas food is...?

 In our house Prime Rib.

My gift is going to be a cozy Christmas gift pack with movie, book, socks, mug, Starbucks hot chocolate and candy.

  32. Most favourite and least favourite part of Christmas?
    Most favorite:
    -Going to church and learning the meaning of Christmas all over again (Even that I am not religious yet, it is something meaningful to me)
    -Holidays and spending time with family and friends. Can't deny I love that a lot.
    Least favorite:
    Living in a busy city, Christmas has always been portrayed to me as a very commercial holiday- all the lights, the Christmas shopping, and so on. Having those stuff is nice, but then when it gets to the point where it becomes overwhelming, it just kind of ruins Christmas for me.

  33. My favourite christmas move is a muppets christmas carol

    ReplyDelete
  34. Most favourite and least favourite part of Christmas?
    My most favourite part is when the whole family reunites on the Christmas table and we eat and drink all together, maybe yell a little bit, laugh, cry, sing, I love these memories!
    My least favourite is when this all ends and I have to wait another whole year for these moments to come again!
