THE 10 QUESTIONS TO ANSWER:

What’s your favorite thing about Christmas?
JESUS! Absolutely everything Jesus! And finally the world joins me in celebrating Him, even if they think they’re “just enjoying the holidays.” His love is contagious!

What’s your favorite Christmas memory?
My favorite Christmas memory is a season life when all of us in my family were grown, doing extremely well, with several friends at all times, mom, dad, and gran just as much a part of our group, active in church, family communion at the altar with our friends, making sure we were together by midnight when we started opening gifts, as we passed foods and drinks around. We always had extra friends or strangers down to the last minute, but always had plenty to share with whoever the Lord sent our way… even presents. We loved sharing God’s blessings. Anthoni was everyone’s little buddy.

Are there special traditions your family has for Christmas?
We did communion at 6pm and gathered together to open presents at midnight.

What’s your Christmas wish? (Can be personal or general)
 That everybody everywhere somehow would take even one moment to say, “Happy Birthday, Emmanuel!”

What’s your favorite Christmas dish?
Always banana pudding (or as we say in these part nana pud’n 😉 )

What’s your favorite Christmas decoration?
The Nativity and the Star

What’s your favorite Christmas song?
Happy Birthday, Jesus ❤

Where do you usually celebrate Christmas?
Church and home

What does the ‘Christmas Spirit’ mean to you?
Being filled with the peace and joy of God’s love sent to us through His only Son. The Spirit fills us with such awe and wonder, and yet with a childlike faith. We have hope because of His coming, and we know He WILL come again! 🙂

Who out of anybody in the world would you want to spend your Christmas with?
Jesus. It’s always about Jesus! I love Him! Because He first loved me!
