1. What is your favorite Christmas story & why?
My favorite Christmas story is The Little Match Girl. Writer Hans Cristian Anderson. I just fell in love with that story when I was a young girl, it didn’t just teach me the meaning of Christmas but the meaning of life. It’s just a beautiful story that I recommend for everyone to read.
2. What's your favorite Christmas song?
I have so many, I´m a true Christmas child and I love music so picking one is very hard for me but I have one song that I listen more to now than others both last year and this year but it’s an Icelandic Christmas song and it’s called No Christmas Without You it’s so beautiful and one of our best artist that sings it Stefan Hilmarsson.
3. What to you is the true meaning of Christmas?
True meaning of Christmas? Lots of presents so many that you don’t know from who you got what from and you just want more. Just kidding. Family, family, family spending time with everyone, dressing up, playing cards, talking, laughing and just having a good time, it happens so seldom so that’s what true meaning of Christmas is to me.
4. What's your favorite Christmas memory?
It’s when I was 8 years old, we were spending Christmas with my aunt in the us and at that time I believed in Santa Claus. My aunt told all the kids that Santa was coming and I was so excited, my God my dream was coming true Santa was in our house. My heart was exploiting of excitement then I saw Santa in the living room everyone got the change to sit on his lap and it was finally my turn, I walked over to him and I looked into his eyes I was so shy but he asked me what I wanted for Christmas and all kinds of great questions then suddenly I knew I had seen those eyes before so I asked him "Are you the real Santa?" Of course he said, then I asked him again "If you are the real Santa where is Vince?" (He is my aunt’s husband) he told me that he was taking care of the reindeers but I wanted proof and asked him to show me Vince and the reindeers but he said we couldn’t see them because they were invisible. Then I knew from that moment that there was no Santa in the house and I told all the kids that Vince was the Santa I destroyed Christmas for everyone hehehe but he was the nicest and best Santa I had ever met. This is my favorite Christmas memory.
