Hi all, and happy Friday! I'm pleased to continue the Christmas interview fun with author Anna Kristell. Please help me welcome Anna here today!
Hi Anna! So glad to have you on the blog. Thanks for taking part of my Christmas interview fun.
What is your best Christmas memory? Various Christmas Eve’s at my parents’ house with all the family there, Santa always paid a visit. It was a good time and I miss those days.
What is your favorite gift ever received? An anniversary ring tied around a teddy bear’s neck from hubby
What is your favorite gift you've given? The Christmas Story could have been written about my husband and his brother…so one year I got him a Red Ryder BB gun, just like the one in the movie, priceless.
What are some of your traditions? Midnight Mass...most of the family is gone or moved to other states now so our Christmas traditions have changed over the past few years…we still do stockings for the grandbabies and breakfast on Christmas morning
What is the most creative gift you've ever given? Probably a wreath that I made one year…I went through a crafty stage but it didn’t last long…LOL
Most creative gift ever received? A friend made the most original and beautiful ornaments for my kids when they were small.
How early do you start listening to Christmas music? November
When do you decorate? Thanksgiving weekend
Do you love to read Christmas stories? Yes!
Favorite holiday song? Mary, Did You Know?
Favorite holiday movie? There are so many…I can’t say that I have an all time fave…love them all
What is your Christmas wish this year? I wish for good health and happy times for my family and friends.
Is there anything you'd like to add? The past year has been filled with good and bad for me and my family and I’m hoping that 2013 will prove to be a year filled with many good things.
Thank you for being here with me today!
