Q: Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Our whole family (I have a big family) get together and open gifts on Christmas Eve, it gets a little a little crazy with all the little ones running around but we love it.
Q: What is your favorite Christmastime tradition?
My family does a gift exchange that is based on the letter of the alphabet, this year we're on 'F'. Then we play a game to exchange. P.S. Anybody have any gift ideas that start with F? Asking for a friend
Q: What are the Top 3 Christmas movies?
The Grinch, Miracle on 34th Street, The Family Stone

Somebody gifted me a teddy bear when I was far too old to receive a teddy bear!
Q: What is your favorite Christmas season recipe (drink, cookie, meal, etc)?
Im a sucker for classic Christmas sugar cookies (obviously the decorating is my favorite part). Im also excited to try this new fun recipe this year:
Q: Do you prefer eggnog or hot chocolate?
Hot Chocolate, but the good kind, not the water and powder mix type. With marshmallow, but the good kind, not the dehydrated baby marshmallows that come in hot chocolate packets. But really Chai tea wins everytime ;)
Q: Do you like colored lights on your tree or white? Big or small?
White. Both sizes. Our Christmas tree is flocked and the white lights compliment it so well!
Q: Favorite holiday memory as a child?
There used to be a section of my home town that everyone called candy cane lane and all the houses would really go all out on decorations. I loved driving through the neighborhood and seeing all the lights.
Q: What is on your Christmas wishlist this year?
I'd say an iPad but I splurged on Black Friday and got myself one, so now all I need is an Apple Pencil to create some beautiful artwork.
Q: Real tree or fake tree?
Fake and flocked. I'd love a real tree but let's be real nobody wants to do that kind of clean up.
Q: What was your favorite gift?
When I was 8, I had a massive crush on Leonardo Dicaprio and my mom gifted to me the Titanic soundtrack on CD and a Titanic t-shirt. I was way more excited than necessary!
Q: What is the most important thing about Christmas to you?
Spending time with my loved ones.
Q: Christmas letter, card, photo card, or nothing?
Our family has yet to make one (I know I know, I'm a designer I should have the best Christmas card around), but we love having all of the cards we receive hanging in our living room.
Q: Do you have a charity you serve or give to at Christmas?
We've participated in Angel Tree and other various kid-based charities.
