“It’s Christmas Time, It’s Christmas Time” and we are bringing you MORE of your favorite artist to talk about their most favorite time of the year, CHRISTMAS! Okay we have country star, Max Ater!
Ryan: Christmas is a time for joy and happiness to spend with friends and family. How do you plan to spend your Christmas this year?
Max: I love keeping Christmas simple and spending as much time as I can with my family at home in Bath, Maine! We’re all so busy so it’s nice having everyone under one roof for a day or two.
What are your favorite festivities surrounding Christmas?
Is eating a festivity? Because there’s no food like my mom’s Christmas dinner! Also my hometown of Bath goes all out with decorations, so walking downtown with family and friends is always a blast.
Let’s settle the debate: when should someone put up their christmas tree?
The minute Thanksgiving is over, obviously!
What is the best gift you’ve received for Christmas?
I got a telescope when I was twelve or so and it totally sparked my curiosity about space and the world around me. I still have it.
What song(s) get you in the Christmas spirit?
The classics and Michael Bublé’s “Christmas”.
Would you consider creating a Christmas album? If so, what songs would you include, or would they be originals?
I totally would! There’s something so simple and sweet about Christmas music and I love that. As a songwriter, I’d love to write my own tunes for a Christmas album.
Rank your top favorite Christmas themed movies
#1. The Grinch
#2. … watching the Grinch again.
Does your family have any Christmas traditions that are unique?
My mum always makes this food called “monkey bread” which is like a giant sticky bun but somehow even better. We always eat it for breakfast on Christmas morning and await the inevitable sugar crash.
With Christmas comes cold weather and snow. Do you like enjoy the cold weather? Snow?
Nope! But I try to not let it get the best of me. Thankfully, Maine makes up for the frigid Winters with incredible other seasons.
Did you build a snowman when it were a kid?
Of course! Not the best though. I’d tire myself out too quickly with a gigantic bottom piece and just quickly throw the rest together!
