When do you usually know and feel that it’s finally the holidays?
When I spend time by the pool, reading a book and don’t feel guilty that I am ‘bunking’ off work.
What do you want for Christmas this year?
For the ‘elephant in the room’ to go away.
Do you go all out with decorations?
We have a Christmas tree in our lounge and I have a few treasured ornaments that I use on and around my lunch table.
What are you doing Christmas Eve?
As much of the cooking and preparation as I can for Christmas lunch.
What are you doing Christmas Day?
We’ll have family time in the morning, opening gifts and then friends are coming over for lunch; table for 8.
It’s Christmas time. What are you reading?
I re-read Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray every December. I am also reading People of the Sand by Desiree Lourens and A handful of honey by Annie Hawes.
Favorite movie to watch during the holidays?
The BBC Lifestyle chanel.
Favorite Christmas song?
None, I don’t like Christmas songs, I especially loathe Boney M.
Favorite holiday drink?
Bubbly: Robertson Winery has just released their Vendange Vin Rouge and I’ve recently fallen for Solms-Astor’s Cape Jazz Shiraz.
How is your Christmas shopping going?
If you could spend Christmas Day anywhere else, where would you spend it?
Any holiday traditions?
No specific ones, just a big lunch always.
Favorite thing about the Holidays.
They eventually end…
I’m not tagging anyone, go ahead and do it if you feel like it.
