With Christmas just around the corner, V.Rose shared with us her favorite Christmas traditions, memories, and more. Plus, hear her cover of the Christmas classic “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”!
What is your greatest Christmas memory?
My greatest Christmas memory is from when I was 9 or 10. I remember laying on the dog bed next the fireplace with my dog while my brothers danced in the kitchen with my dad to Nat King Cole Christmas music. We were all together and it was perfect.
What is your favorite Christmas song and why?
My favorite Christmas song is “The Christmas Song” some might know it as “Chestnuts Roasting On an Open Fire” by Nat King Cole. I think I love it so much because it reminds me of so many things I love about the holidays.
What Christmas tradition have you carried with you from your childhood?
There are so many but an interesting one is that I have always slept under the tree on Christmas Eve. When I was a kid we all did and there are 7 of us. I still spend Christmas Eve at my dad’s house every year and my 10-year-old little brother Lucio and I sleep under the tree.
What is your favorite Christmas meal?
My family pretty much makes the same food on Christmas as we do on Thanksgiving but I would have to say I love the stuffing and mashed potatoes the most and I could eat only that and be totally satisfied.
What is your favorite Christmas desert? Is it something you make every year?
My favorite is pumpkin pie with tons of whipped cream or Cool-Whip or both depending on my mood. I made it for the first time last year and I am looking forward to my grandma to show me how to do it right this year haha!
What is your favorite Christmas album and why?
My favorite Christmas album is called “The Christmas Song” by Nat King Cole. My dad is totally the one to blame for this. We always listened to it at Christmas time. Nat King Cole has more Christmas albums that I love too, but this one is my favorite.
What is your favorite Christmas movie and why?
My favorite Christmas movie is “Home Alone” and of course “Home Alone Lost In New York”. I can’t choose! It is a movie I have always watched at Christmas time and I play it over and over November through December. I also love “The Polar Express”.
What is the Christmas story you remember being told as a child and do you share it now?
Every year we would read the nativity story from the bible on Christmas Eve. It is found in Luke Chapter 2. We still read it every year.
What do you want for Christmas this year?
This year I would really like to see my younger brother for Christmas. He lives in Texas and I haven’t seen him in over a year. That would be the best gift ever.
What are your holiday plans this year?
I am spending as much time with my family as I can. I want to bake, go ice-skating and see a holiday play if I can.
Do you have any New Years resolutions?
My New Years Resolution for 2016 is to be consistent with my YouTube vlogs. I always have so much going on but I love doing them and I am going to make it happen. I also am going to cook dinner the days that I am not on the road instead of microwaving my life away.
