My favorite Christmas movie is Home Alone. It’s such a classic, funny movie to watch. Home Alone makes me laugh so much. I just love it.

Have You Ever Had A White Christmas?

No I haven’t. I live in Florida so it doesn’t snow here. To be honest I don’t think I want to experience a white Christmas. It’s cool to see on TV but I don’t like the cold so I don’t think I would like snow.

I usually spend the holiday at home with my family, but really I’m mostly in my room. To escape some of the insanity that goes on.

What Is Your Favorite Christmas Song?

I mean all I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey is a classic. So I’m an online reading tutor and sometimes I play quiz games with my students. We played a holiday trivia game. I’m disappointed to say these kids do not know who Mariah Carey is and it’s a shame.

Do You Open Any Presents On Christmas Eve?

What Holiday Traditions Are You Looking Forward To This Year?

So what I was looking forward to this year was the gift exchange My sisters and I did. For years our parents didn’t really get us anything so we decided to change that.

Be Honest, Do You Like Giving Or Receiving Gifts Better?

I honestly don’t know. I spent a lot of Christmases without presents, which would make you think I would want to receive gifts and I kinda do. But at the same time because I didn’t really get gifts I’m bad at planning gifts for people.

What Is The Best Christmas Present You Ever Received?

So even though I said I went a lot of Christmases without gifts there was one that made up for it. One year my mom’s employer got my sister’s and I some presents. We got a Wii gaming system as a family present. My older sister got a PSP, I got an IPod and my younger sister got a Keyboard. The Christmas before that was bad and so were the Christmases after. But that was a good year.

Oh that’s a hard one. Like I said I don’t really want to see snow like that, but I think it would be cool to visit Paris during the winter.

Are You A Pro Present Wrapper Or Do You Fail Miserably?

I think I’m pretty good at wrapping presents. It’s like an arts and crafts project for me.

Most Memorable Christmas Memory?

What Made You Realize The Truth About Santa?

I think I learned early on. Like I said I didn’t get many gifts to even have an illusion to believe in Santa. 

What Makes The Holidays Special For You?

Even though I’ve had a lot of bad Christmases, what makes the holidays special is the idea of the Christmas spirit and trying to make the best of it. I try to do things with my sisters and my friends. This is the second year my friend and I are sending each other holiday care packages. So I’m always trying to make new and special memories.
