How do you and/or your business get into the spirit of giving?
For me personally, this time of year brings about the inclination to give. I look around at how blessed I am, that I have a good job, a wonderful family and a roof over my head and I think about those that aren't as fortunate. The holidays can be an especially tough time for many as they try to provide a good Christmas for their kids or miss family that's not there, etc.
It makes me want to help and give back.
What is your favorite part about this time of year?
The love and warmth. I feel people are more nice and talk to each other more often. Everyone is smiling and in celebration mode.
What is your local family “must attend” holiday event?
Every year we go to LaSalette "Festival of Lights" in Attleboro. We're also making a habit of going to Edaville Railroad around this time to see their lights and Santa.
Would you share with us a family tradition?
Our family does a "gag Yankee Swap" every year. We all bring something that we don't particularly want (or that no one would particularly want) and wrap it up for a Yankee Swap. It's a lot of laughs.
If you could have one wish this holiday season, what would it be?
For good health and happiness for the following year.
This year I also wish for success with my new LuLaRoe business.
What are your words festive words of advice for our families during this special time?
Don't let family disputes ruin your holidays. If someone has beef with someone else, ask them both to agree to put their differences aside for the sake of others, especially the children. This is a magical time for them and it's important to keep civil and cordial. I have no issues calling out a family member or friend who is bringing too much negativity to gatherings. It's not about us,
it's about Jesus, giving, and the kids.
What is your favorite holiday dessert?
Christmas cookies and egg nog.
Do you have a favorite holiday song?
If so, which one and why? I could listen to the Elvis Christmas album over and over again. My mom has been playing it around Christmas for as long as I can remember.
To me, those songs are as much a part of Christmas as the tree.
