WHAT IS ON YOUR CHRISTMAS WISH LIST THIS YEAR?
TOM: iPad apps! Nothing like an iTunes gift card!
WHAT GIFTS ARE YOU BUYING THIS YEAR?
MIKE: This year the gift I‘m buying is a plane ticket to spend time with my family.
TOM: I‘m giving…clothes. I like to pretend that I‘m my family‘s ―stylist‖ so I buy everyone clothes that I think they should wear. Hopefully it doesn‘t blow up in my face!
WHAT ARE YOUR HOLIDAY PLANS?
RACHEL: I‘m going to spend the holiday with my family in California and after Christmas, I‘m heading to New York to spend some time with my boyfriend and his family.
TOM: I‘m visiting my mom and dad in the snowy frozen tundra of northern New York state, then visiting friends in NC and then hanging with friends in Nashville.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAY DISH?
TOM: My mom makes a pretty intense arrangement of Christmas cookies every year…those are my favorite.
RACHEL: My family always duplicates Thanksgiving dinner on Christmas so I‘ll be looking forward to some turkey and pumpkin pie!
FAVORITE CHRISTMAS MEMORY/TRADITION?
RACHEL: I just love being with my family; they are funny and crazy and so loving—we have a lot of laughs! I‘m always on the road and being that they live in California and I live in Tennessee, I don‘t get to see them that often so my time at home is very important to me.
MIKE: My favorite Christmas memory was when I was younger and Santa got me power wheels.
TOM: My favorite family tradition– our whole extended family and friends gather together on Christmas Eve and party ‗til midnight, then we walk through the snow to midnight mass at church.
