Name a book you would like to see under your Christmas tree
To be perfectly honest with you all, I haven’t done nearly enough reading as I wanted to this year.I think my foreshadowing was correct. Eugh. I would however love to see Emma by Jane Austen? Also, The Second Sex by Simone de Beauvoir?
A book you’ll be reading during the holiday season!
BEING AND NOTHINGNESS BY JEAN PAUL SARTRE BECAUSE I AM A PHILOSOPHY NERD. I’ve also got my hands on a copy of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, with some of the original illustrations, and I love it.
Favorite Christmas movie?
I actually don’t watch that many Christmas films! (Do I get my festivity card revoked now?) I do, however, watch Love Actually almost every year, without fail (and giggle at the “massage them” part. I was seven when I first saw it, okay? I blame it on nostalgia.).
Do you like snow?
I’ve never seen snow (that I can actively recall)! It snowed in 2007 in South Africa, but I was in Nigeria at the time, so I missed it. I did see snow when I was a tiny tot in America, but I can’t remember that. I do like snow, though. I love the cold more than anything else (I’m looking at you summer, you awful season you) and I hope that when I do see snow, I will like it.
Name a character you would like to spend your Christmas day with
MMMM tough one. I’m going to break this up into a character from a show and one from a book –
TV Show Webseries wise, I’d say the gang from Carmilla (without the crazy demon time and all that), and in terms of books, I’d say The Golden Trio from Harry Potter in the Great Hall. I just feel like nothing really says Christmas like MAGIGALLY APPEARING FOOD does.
To give or receive?
Can I say both? Giving, for me. I like wrapping gifts and making people excited and hearing “oh this is exactly what I wanted!”. I really like giving. I wish I wasn’t so broke all the time.
What fictional place would you like to spend Christmas at?
Hogwarts. Hogwarts, or The Burrow, or a snowy version of London. A snowy somewhere.
Fondest Christmas memory?
I haven’t really got one! But last year, my family and I did a secret santa gift exchange for the first time, and everyone got really festive, and the asshole bit of my family wasn’t present (haha, present) and it was really a lovely time.
Can you say Christmas tree ten times fast, while pronouncing it correctly?
No. I said “shitmas free” twice. I’m not trying this again.
MERRY SIX DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS AJEUKFDSJGFJDSHFIYGHKGTHDG
