THE HOLIDAY INTERVIEW
SANTA: Do you believe in Santa Claus?
TAWNY: I do! I believe so much that after my oldest daughter was born in December, I had to call my mother and tell her if there were any secrets she needed to fill me in on, she’d better do it ASAP. I believe in the magic of Santa Claus. I believe in the innocence and beauty of the spirit he embodies and I love how even in our often cynical world, Santa is still ‘real’.
SANTA: What’s your favorite Holiday cartoon special?
TAWNY: My favorite cartoon is A YEAR WITHOUT A SANTA CLAUS. I love the music, the elves and how fun Mrs. Claus is. But really, the reason it’s my favorite is The Heat Miser. I adore him! He’s such a funny character who became my all time fave when I was really young because he looks like my brother. Not the roundness, or that his eyes pop out, of course. But that flaming red hair and the temper... oh yeah. That was my brother...LOL.
SANTA: What’s your favorite Holiday Movie?
TAWNY: A CHRISTMAS CAROL with Patrick Stewart. I love the story itself, and have seen a lot of the different versions (Muppets rock) but I adore Patrick Stewart and he is so amazing in this role.
SANTA: Which Holiday film can you watch over and over without falling asleep?
TAWNY: I love to watch A NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS over and over. I’ve seen it so often, I don’t actually have to ‘see’ it to enjoy it anymore. I love having play in the background while I bake or craft holiday fun.
SANTA: What’s your favorite Holiday desert you’d share with friends?
TAWNY: I adore these yummy caramel pecan candies my mother makes. They are so wonderfully good that I’m very, VERY grateful she only makes them once a year. Otherwise, I’d be in big trouble. Since it’s her recipe, I can’t share. But I’d be happy to share an equally delicious and amazingly simple fudge recipe!
2 Cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 Snickers bars, chopped (I’ve made it with Peppermint Patties, HeathBars, etc)
1 can chocolate frosting
Line a pan with foil, then spray with cooking spray. Melt chips, stir in frosting and candy bar pieces. Spread in pan, then refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares and enjoy!
SANTA: What is your favorite Holiday tradition?
TAWNY: Oh – I have so many. I love decorating. The tree, the house, the presents. I adore the family time, getting together with friends and all of the social joy that’s shared. And I love baking, too. Cookies and candy and breads are always a yummy, but making them at the holidays is extra special. Maybe it’s that Christmas magic, maybe it’s the fun of baking with my daughters, or maybe it’s the idea that the goodies will be bringing smiles to loved ones tummies. But as much as I love those traditions, my absolute hands down favorite is that quite time after the tree is done, the house is decorated and everything is ‘holidayed’. With the treelights on, the houselights off and the music playing, my family gathers around and simply basks in the magic of the season. Now, sure, that basking usually only lasts about 5 minutes, since my kids are impatient, but those 5 minutes are magical.
SANTA’S GOTTA ASK: What’s your favorite gift Santa ever left under the tree?
TAWNY’S GOTTA ANSWER: Oh – I’ve loved so many that it’s hard to pick. Since it’s the most recent, I’ll say the diamond studs I found under the tree last year – because they include two of my favorite things; Diamonds... and Studs :-D
