What is your favourite Christmas movie or TV special? 

Chuck Jones’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, with Bailey’s and coffee in hand of course.




Does your family have a special or quirky Christmas tradition?
Growing up, my brother and I were always allowed to open just one present on Christmas Eve. We’d always pick the biggest ones.

Which do you prefer: to give or receive?  

Who doesn’t love getting a great gift! But picking out the perfect present for someone you care about, and watching them unwrap it on Christmas morning is so wonderful.

Which Peanuts character do you think your friends and family would say reminds them of you?
I asked: Woodstock. Thanks friends!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters: Not a Chance – or – The Uglier the Better?
Count me in for any obnoxiously-decorated festive attire. Last year I made this four-person sweater for our Morning News team!

What do you want Santa to bring you this year?
A flight somewhere tropical to escape a prairie winter, but I’ll settle for a new blow-dryer.
