The Questions For Me

1. How do you celebrate Christmas?
A. We have a mixture of responses to Christmas, simple gifts usually charity based offerings (buying something for a developing community), a very simple meal these days (it’s usually hot here 30 – 38 C), Mass has been part of my life for as long as I can remember as a celebration. Gathering with family and friends. Conversation is the main feature and there’s always good wine and whiskey.

2. Do you have a favourite Christmas carol or hymn?
A. Yes, O Come, O come, Emmanuel – this version by Folk Angel (Enya too)


3. Do you like snow?
A. Yes, I grew up with it in England, technically there’s no snow where I live now, but I’m not sure I want to live with it again.

4. What is your favourite contemporary song?
A. ‘Joy To The World’ as sung by the late Aretha Franklin.

5. What does your Christmas dinner table look like?
A. Lunch is more the Aussie focus with salads and cold meats for us, good wine, craft beers. Dinner, also mainly salads, comes with pudding and/or Christmas cake if anyone has room.

6. What is your favourite Christmas memory?
A. So many. An early one was that my dirt poor parents had saved for Christmas one year and I got a railway set which I know now cost a fair bit.

7. If you could take a paid two week break this time of year, what would you do and why?
A. I generally do take that break and we catch up with friends and family as this is a fabulous time here for lunching and BBQs and lounging over conversation.

8. Do you have a favourite Christmas book or piece of literature?
A. ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens.
