I Heart XMAS! with Rosey Edeh

Rosey Edeh Christmas
Rosey Edeh will be co-hosting Toy Drive Live this year

 

Retro Festive: What is your favourite Christmas movie or TV special?
Rosey Edeh: My favorite TV Christmas special is Charlie Brown. The music by Vince Guaraldi is so smooth, so perfectly festive and that pitiful little tree! Linus puts his blanket around it, the gang shows it some love and voila! It looks amazing! Finally, Charlie Brown triumphs.

Does your family have a special or quirky Christmas tradition?
I don’t have any quirky family traditions, just eating Christmas dinner until we can barely move! Mom’s the best cook in the world! Seriously!

Which do you prefer: to give or receive?
I prefer to give. I am a serious shopper! I love a good bargain but love the hunt for that perfect gift even more.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters: Not a Chance – or – The Uglier the Better?
Ugly Christmas sweater? Does it come with a pair of black tights and a killer pair of pumps? If it does, bring on the ugly sweater!
Editor’s Note: For you Rosey – anything!

What do you want Santa to bring you this year?
Santa, please bring me skis and a handsome ski instructor! I’ve conquered the bunny hill and the double black diamond is next!

Rosey Edeh will be co-hosting Toy Drive Live this year.  Global News teams up with the Toronto Fire Fighters every year to support the Firefighters Toy Drive. This annual event will be broadcast live on Global  News at 5:30pm from the Shops on Don Mills on Thursday, December 4.  Bring a toy and join in the festive fun!

Retro Festive: What is your favourite Christmas movie or TV special?
Anthony Farnell: My favourite Christmas movie has become Four Christmases because Vince Vaughan is hilarious.

Four Christmases is Anthony Farnell’s favourite Christmas movie!

 

Does your family have a special or quirky Christmas tradition?
My family meets every Christmas at our warm cozy cottage in Vermont. We open gifts, have brunch and sometimes hit the slopes in the afternoon.

Which do you prefer: to give or receive?
If I’m shopping last minute (which I normally do) then I’d much prefer to receive.  I’ve been slowly learning to put thought into gifts!

Ugly Christmas Sweaters: Not a Chance – or – The Uglier the Better?
Of course, the uglier the sweater the better.

What do you want Santa to bring you this year?
Call me a nerd but I’m hoping Santa delivers a home weather station to put up on my roof.  Storm (my dog) is looking for treats and a squeaky toy so I think at least one of us won’t be disappointed this year.

I recently visited the Drake Devonshire Inn (in Prince Edward County) for the first time and their house robe was amazing.  It had a hood and sweater sleeves.  Yes, please.
