What is your favorite Christmas movie?
N: It’s definitely a tie between Elf and Christmas Vacation! Those two movies are on constant replay during this time of year!
C: Christmas Vacation!
H: Buddy the Elf!
I think Bruce Willis’ Die Hard is THE Christmas movie, do you agree?
N: I will agree that Die Hard is A Christmas movie (and a great one at that), but not THE Christmas movie. It does not compare to the holiday vibes as well as Elf does!
C: Yesyesyes. Die Hard, hard yes.
H: Die hard is good but I wouldn’t say it’s THE Christmas movie.
Do you do your Christmas shopping early, or do you wait last second?
N: Is it really even Christmas shopping if you don’t wait until the last minute? Otherwise, it’s just shopping.
C: I love to get my shopping done by the first week of December, so that I don’t have to stress last minute haha!
H: I always get my shopping done till last second.
What does Christmas mean to you?
N: Christmas means everything to me! It’s my favorite holiday. My sisters and I are on the road most of the year, so this is the special time we get to take off to soak up every moment with our family and friends. It’s also a very cheery holiday when it comes to giving back. I enjoy taking toys/clothes to the homeless shelters and blankets/food to the animal shelters.
Favorite dish for the holiday?
N: My favorite dish for the holiday is always my Pawpaw’s homemade dressing. I look forward to it every year! My pawpaw is my grandfather that has recently passed. He used to make dressing every year, but this is our first holiday without him, so I am making it with the recipe he gave me!
Do you enjoy decorating and are you typically full of the Christmas spirit?
N: Absolutely! I love decorating the tree.
C: Love decorating for Christmas anytime, any day!! Always in the spirit!
H: I love decorating for Christmas! Never not in the spirit.
Christmas dinner: ham or turkey?
C: Turkey all the way!!
H: I love Turkey
Are there any Christmas tunes you like to put on to set the Christmas mood?
N: Honestly, anything from Michael Buble’s Christmas album gets me INSTANTLY in the Christmas mood. However, one of my favorite holiday songs is “That’s What Christmas Means to Me”!
C: I’m obsessed with the old-timey Christmas tunes. Preferably played on a turntable with a nice side of crackle!
H: All the classic Christmas music
What are your plans this year for Christmas? Where will you celebrate?
N: WE will be celebrating Christmas in our hometown of Cleveland, MS
Does snow really make it feel Christmas or could you live without snow?
N: Since we live in the Mississippi Delta, snow is very rare. We have spent many Christmas mornings in shorts/short sleeves; however, snow would DEFINITELY make it feel more like Christmas!
C: I wish it would snow for every Christmas
H: I wish we would have snow for 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?
N: Personally, I am more of a chocolate lover when it comes to anything sweet, so I wasn’t really one to favor pumpkin spice. But I do love the smell of it!
C: Bring on all of the pumpkin spice and holiday flavors!! Tis the season am I right?!
H: Bring it on with the pumpkin spice and gingerbread flavors!!
