1. Where is the furthest you have traveled for Christmas and will you be traveling this year?
The furthest I ever traveled for Christmas was from Sacramento to Los Angeles, over 20 years ago. This year the celebrations are at my home, so I'll be staying right here.
2. Do you celebrate any other holiday this month? Kwanza? Chanukah? Festivus?
No other holiday per se, but December 21 has much significance. On that day in 1985 I moved from Sacramento back to my home town, and exactly six years later on that same day, I met Sam, so that date is a big on in our life.
3. Who is the hardest person to shop for on your Christmas list and why do you think they are so hard to buy for?
The hardest person to shop for are Sam's daughters. Not so much because they are difficult to shop for, but more because each year we buy them jammies, which they open on Christmas Eve. They both like a particular kind, and the stores just don't stock them like they once did.
4. How old were you when you stopped believing in Santa? Extra credit if you have a picture of you with Santa!
Stopped? Hmmm, I never stopped believing. I'll be back to post a pic of me and Santa. Customers have just arrived at the Christmas tree lot and I need to help them.
5. Fill in the blank; For me Christmas just wouldn't be the same without _______?
Christmas just wouldn't be the same without Sam. I've celebrated so many with him and his family now it has become a part of my life. Christmas wouldn't be the same without the spirit of the season. I love wishing people a 'Merry Christmas' both vocally and in my cards. For me, those words always come with a smile.
