What is your go-to holiday drink? My Auntie Kristine’s sangria! It’s a sangria with a special (and yummy) twist.

What is your favorite Christmas present that you have ever received? When I was 8 years old, Santa brought me my childhood puppy, Noel. She has since passed on, but this was the greatest gift ever.

What were your Christmas traditions when you were younger? We’ve always had the same traditions! Christmas Eve with my dad’s side and LOTS of fun presents and holiday cheer and then Christmas Day dinner and gift exchange with my Mom’s side. It’s always so amazing to see all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents and family during this time.

How have your Christmas celebrations changed since becoming an adult? I’m lucky to say they have been able to stay the same. My family values time together and the holidays.

How do you spend the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day? Recovering from the food, drinks and overstimulation of Christmas LOL.

How do you spend New Year’s Eve? When I was growing up, my parents and I would always to a trip to NYC to see broadway shows and do a New Year’s Eve dinner with my Auntie Kay Kay (who lived there at the time). Nowadays, my best friend’s birthday is on 12/31, so we have no choice but to HAVE to celebrate him LOL (shoutout to Daniel).

What do you typically eat on New Year’s Day? Leftovers!

Do you have a New Year’s Resolution for 2022? To continue wake up each day and live life to the fullest. This is always my resolution. Also, this year – I would like to try new foods and say yes to more things that scare me!
