Here’s what Michelle shared for our 12 Days of Christmas Project…
What is your favorite childhood Christmas memory?
MICHELLE: In our family, gifts from Santa are always wrapped in white paper with color-coordinated bows for each child. Waking up on Christmas morning to see the new, white packages everywhere is absolutely magical.
What is your favorite Christmas food?
MICHELLE: I love family traditions like my mom’s oyster stuffing and pumpkin pie, and my grandmother’s date pudding. My brother is an amazing cook, so anything he creates is a treat. And my raspberry almond thumbprint cookies are seriously addictive. (Want the recipe? Email me HERE.)
What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
MICHELLE: We go to church on Christmas Eve and then celebrate with our best friends.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
MICHELLE: O’ Holy Night brings me to tears every time, without fail.
Have you been naughty or nice this year?
MICHELLE: Nice! Always nice! (And busy!)
What is on your Christmas list this year?
MICHELLE: Quiet, quality time with my family.
What is one way you give back during the holiday season?
MICHELLE: My husband and I decided years ago that we would be the couple to host a big, annual Christmas Party. (This year, we hosted our 18th consecutive one!) As part of the celebration, we choose a charity to honor each time. Together with our friends, we collect items that bring joy to others. Some of my favorites include Birthday Blessings, Emile’s Packs of Hope, and The Pajama Program. This year, we collected warm socks for area homeless shelters.
What is your best piece of advice for our customers during the holiday season?
MICHELLE: Be present with your friends and family, and spread some Christmas cheer to others!
