• 17 years old. • From New Har­bour. • Favourite Christ­mas mem­ory — When I was young, my dad worked away, and was gone for Christ­mas. So, my mom, brother, and I spent Christ­mas with my Nan and Pop at their house. So we wrote Santa, telling him that we wouldn’t be home, and spent Christ­mas to­gether as a fam­ily. This was a Christ­mas I’ll never for­get. • Your Christ­mas wish — My Christ­mas wish this year is for ev­ery­one to spend their hol­i­days with the ones they love and make ev­ery mo­ment count. • What do you miss most about Christ­mas as a child — The thing I miss most about Christ­mas as a child is the big sur­prise Christ­mas morn­ing when you run out to the tree and have no idea what to ex­pect. Now that I’m older, there are no sur­prises any­more. • Fun­ni­est Christ­mas story — The year I got my first phone, I opened the box to find my mom’s old re­cy­cled phone inside. As I teared up to the thought of what my friends might think, I heard an un­fa­mil­iar ring­tone. I looked around and found my phone be­hind a pic­ture frame. When I turned around I saw my dad stood in the door­way of the liv­ing room call­ing my phone. My re­ac­tion was price­less. • Mean­ing of Christ­mas to you — The mean­ing of Christ­mas to me is spend­ing time with loved ones and mak­ing ev­ery mo­ment spe­cial by cre­at­ing mem­o­ries to last a lifetime. • Favourite or­na­ment or dec­o­ra­tion for Christ­mas — My Favourite dec­o­ra­tion is the big cross my great-grand­fa­ther would put up on the hill in White­way ev­ery year. Since he passed, my pop car­ried on the tra­di­tion.
