How long did you believe in Santa?
Bobby: I don’t understand the question?? I’ll ask Santa what that means. 😊
Do you do your Christmas shopping early, or do you wait last second?
Bobby: When I’m shopping I start months earlier…
What does Christmas mean to you?
Bobby: For me it’s always been a happy family time. A time for joy and being with the ones that mean the most to me. Even though it’s a religious holiday, it’s never been at the forefront of the season for me despite the fact that I went to Catholic school…😊
Favorite dish for the holiday? Bobby: Turkey and Stuffing
Do you enjoy decorating and are you typically full of the Christmas spirit?
Bobby: Yes, I LOOOOVEEE decorating, especially when there is someone special in my life and I’m not on the road…So much Christmas spirit that I have Holiday Favorites on Sirius/XM from the beginning of November.

What are your plans this year for Christmas? Where will you celebrate?
Bobby: I WAS going to go to London to celebrate, but I’ll just stay in Colorado with my friends…
Does snow really make it feel Christmas or could you live without snow?
Bobby: For me, it’s the season…snow or no snow doesn’t enter the equation. I went to the Cayman Isoands for Christmas once and it was as great as being in NY in a Christmas snowstorm…I just love Christmas.
We see it every year, something new is made smelling or tasting like pumpkin spice. What are your thoughts? Overkill, bring it on, or really do not care?
Bobby: I don’t like pumpkin anything, so I really, really, really don’t care….LOL
