In October and November, I took part in St. Martin’s Press holiday blog tour. I’ve read and reviewed all the books from that blog tour, but we also got the chance to ask the authors some questions, all Holiday-related of course. Next is Donna Grant!
When do the holidays officially start for you?
I’d say October 1st because I get ready for Halloween. Then November 1st to get ready for Thanksgiving, but the day after Thanksgiving, it’s all Christmas!
What’s your favourite thing about the holidays?
The decorations. I love to see it all!
Are there any holiday traditions you do every year without fail?
We spend Christmas Eve at my parents’ where there is a bunch of finger foods. Then Christmas Day everyone comes to my house where we have gumbo (Cajun tradition). Then we head to the movies at about 2.
What’s your favourite holiday movie?
Do you have a favourite holiday book?
No. I’m an equal opportunist for holiday books. 🙂
What’s your all-time favourite holiday song?
What’s your favourite activity during fall or winter?
Around me, we have the Texas Renaissance Festival, which is the largest in the US. It always begins at the end of September and runs until Thanksgiving weekend. It always signals the begin of fall for us.
What’s your favourite gift you’ve ever received or given?
I received my long-haired Chihuahua for Christmas. She was unexpected but so amazing!
Do you have any items on your wish list this year?
Walls. The flood from Hurricane Harvey took everything, but I’d like walls and doors for privacy again. lol
Any resolutions or goals for next year?
I try to make some improvement each year. For 2017, it was balance. I’m not sure what 2018 will be yet. I might still need to work on balancing everything.
