Question 1:      What is your favourite Christmas movie? 

I traditionally like to watch The Ref and Die Hard for Christmas but my favorite cartoon is Olive the Other Reindeer. 
Question 2:    What is your best Christmas memory.

Any Christmas with my children.
Question 3:    What is the best present you’ve received? 

A wooden dollhouse my sister made for me.
Question 4:     What is the best present you’ve given? 

I’m not sure. I think that would depend on the person receiving it. LOL This year I’m writing a book for my mom.
Question 5:     Santa Claus – real or fake? 

Real of course.
Question 6:     What is your favourite Christmas book? 

Night before Christmas.
Question 7:    Do you like eggnog? 

Now that I’ve gotten older I like the lite eggnog but I’m trying a vegan version for my son who’s turned vegan this year.
Question 8:     What do you eat at Christmas? 

We cheat and do finger foods so the kids can eat whenever they come up for air. It seems cruel to make them sit down to a formal meal.
Question 9:     Be honest, when do you put up the Christmas tree? 

We get a real one so we put it up a few weeks before Christmas so it doesn’t dry out.
Question 10:     When do you open your presents? 

Christmas morning…after coffee. It’s my one firm Christmas rule.
Question 11:    Do you have snow at Christmas? 

We live in Seattle so not usually.
Question 12: 1.       What is the best – all-time – Christmas song. Ever! 

Holly Jolly Christmas or anything by Bing Crosby.


  1. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas Amber :D

  2. How can Amber answer all those questions without once mentioning a dragon? Seriously.

  3. Merry Christmas, Amber.

  4. Short and to the point, I didn't expect that. Thank you for the interview and Happy Holidays Amber =)

  5. It's interesting that many people watch Die Hard during the holidays :) As always, great interview! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Coffee before anything is a definite must.

  7. Nice interview. Totally agree with you on Bing Crosby. His voice is one of a kind. Happy Holiday.

  8. Merry Christmas. Should I admit that I've never seen a Die Hard film?

  9. We do a real tree as well, I just love the smell.

  10. I love coffee so that's the first thing i have in the morning, i don't like to eat breakfast (i know that's not good) but i must have my caffeine shot when i get up LOL
    Thank you for another fun Q&A. Merry Chistmas and a Happy New Year!!!


  11. I liked your answer they were very short and sweet. Merry Christmas Amber and to your family too.

  12. I prefer to think of your answers as concise rather than short. I must confess the Die Hard answer puzzles me but you like what you like.

  13. I actually tried Almond Egg Nog today. I have to say it doesn't really compare to the dairy version (IMHO). If it was the only thing available I'd probably just opt for nothing. It wasn't really THAT BAD, but it wasn't THAT GOOD either. :-)

  14. I like Night Before Christmas too. Happy holidays, too!

  15. Merry Christmas Amber. Hugs. :)
