What is your overall favorite holiday memory?
While we were dating, my (now) husband gave me a lovely rhinestone pin that said “I Love Christmas.” I had told him it was my favorite holiday. He found it under a floorboard while remodeling a house and he said it made him think of me. For the record, Christmas is not his favorite lol.
What is your fondest holiday memory in Kenosha?
Taking my kids through Christmas Lane every year has always been a special time together.
Where are some of your favorite places to shop for the holidays?
I moved here when I was 18. As an adult, I always made sure to check out Andreas at the holidays and have already made a visit to Coopers this holiday season.
What is the best holiday gift you ever received?
My family chipped in two years ago and got me a remote start for my car. Such an amazing gift during our long winter months in Wisconsin!
What is the worst holiday gift you ever received?
One year I got an un ugly golfing Santa figure that doubled as a stocking hanger. Family member unidentified.
Do you think you’re on Santa’s nice list or naughty list this year?
That depends on who you ask. However, I tend to veer towards the naughty side despite my best efforts.
