1. What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
Miracle on 34th Street
2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
There are so many, it is hard to choose just one! One Christmas Eve I actually ended up in hospital, the excitement was too much for me and I had an asthma attack! One would think that would be a bad memory, but I was delighted because Santa delivered presents to my home, and to the hospital. I remember being delighted thinking I had outsmarted him, but then worried in case he came and took the extra ones back! Dad and my sisters came in and spent Christmas day in the hospital with us so that was nice. Then I got to go home and play with all my new toys!
4. Favourite festive food?
My sister’s trifle. It is so delicious, and she only makes it at Christmas so it is extra special due to its rarity!
5. Favourite Christmas gift?
A barbie typewriter I got when I was eight or so. My sister got one too and we wrote so many stories on them.
6. Favourite Christmas scent?
Hugo Boss aftershave because I get it for Tom every Christmas!
7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Usually we do some of our baking, (well Mom and my sisters do while I watch) go to mass and then into our local pub for a drink or two, then home.
8. What tops your tree?
A star on one tree and an angel on the other. My younger sister always gets to put them on top of the tree, which is rather unfair I think!
9. As a kid, what was the one gift you asked for but never received?
I can’t remember- I think I got everything I wanted!
10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
The best part for me is the run up to Christmas. When I lived at home, my nephews would be over to visit almost every day, and we would give them early presents, we would do Christmas baking, watch Christmas movies and so on. I am missing out on all of that this year because I am in school until the 23rd. Triona is keeping the traditions alive and well though!
