This year I've invited several authors and book bloggers for a fun Christmas Interview. My third guest is blogger Jenny in Neverland:
What’s your approach to decorating the Christmas Tree: go big or don’t go / less is more?
Our house isn’t very big so we’ve had a kinda small fibre-optic white Christmas tree for a few years which sounds like a cop-out, I know! But me and my mum always spend a while decorating it and we usually go for a pink and silver theme. This year we’re going pink and gold instead -- upon my request! So we don’t “go big” but we do make an effort in regards to decorating the Christmas tree! We’re both very very tidy and organised though so it has to look smart!
Is there a movie or a book you always revisit during the holidays?
I always watch The Muppets Christmas Carol on Christmas and it’s usually on TV every, single Christmas day so that’s useful! I think that’s the best Christmas film ever. I also love Four Christmases with Reese Witherspoon, I think that’s so funny and a good choice for a more modern type of Christmas movie!
If you had to choose a book for a kid who's not a big reader as a Christmas present, which book would you choose?
Ooh this is a difficult question. I suppose it depends if it’s a girl or boy and what age they are. And whether they would enjoy more serious books or not. If so, I’d recommend The Age of Miracles or The Book Thief for a Young Adult aged person. For a younger kid, it has to be any Jacqueline Wilson book right?
What's the most disappointing present you've ever had?
Oh blimey I don’t know - probably socks! Nobody needs more socks but always gets them!
Who played Santa Claus the best:
- David Huddleston in the classic Santa Claus
- Richard Attenborough in the remake of Miracle on 34th Street
- Edmund Gwenn in the original Miracle on 34th Street
- Edward Asner in Elf
I am very, very, very ashamed to say that I have never watched any of these movies so I absolutely couldn’t judge. Please don’t hate me! I will try and make an effort to watch at least one of these this year!
