Hi Rachel and welcome to Alba in Bookland's festive feature. Let's start! Tell me, what was your best Christmas present from your teens?
By my teens, I was declared too old for presents my most of my family. So I normally even back then was receiving cash. If I recall for most of my teens, my parents agreed to buy me a couple of video games of my choice for Christmas, even if it took until the middle of the next year for the ones I wanted to be out. I loved my Nintendo consoles and handhelds. There is no present unfortunately that sticks out from my teens which thinking back is a bit of a sad thought.
A Christmas Carol you know by heart (but wish you didn’t):
The Christmas Carols I know by heart are all ones I like, hence having learnt them that well over the years. Possibly Silent Night if I had to chose just because I find it a slow, boring carol.
Best present for a bookworm:
If your bookworm doesn't already have an ebook reader, then that would be the best present. However if your bookworm is someone like me, a large Amazon voucher works well, as I would use it to buy a whole bunch of heavily discounted books at bargain prices in the Kindle Christmas sale.
Mince Pie, yay or nay?
Nay, I can't stand them. I'd love some Yule log though if you are offering!
Who played Santa Claus the best?
- Tim Allen in Santa Clause
- Tom Hanks in Polar Express
- Paul Giamatti in Fred Claus
- Jack Skellington in The Nightmare Before Christmas
The Santa Clause trilogy is amongst my favourite Christmas films of all time, so I have to go for Tim Allen. He is very believable as Santa, especially in the first two films.
Thank you Rachel for stopping by and answering all my festive questions! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
