An interview with Father Christmas

Yes, you read that right. I managed to track him down and ask him some questions at this busy time of year. :)

Thank you for taking time out at this busy season to answer my questions.
1. Do you prefer Father Christmas, Santa or St Nick.

I prefer Father Christmas

2. Where do you live?

I have an ice palace at the north pole.

3. What are you reindeer called? Do you have a favourite one?

Their names are Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and Blitzen. My favourite is Prancer because he is so lively and full of spirit.

How do you manage to deliver all the presents in one night?

It needs a lot of organisation, and I rely on lots of Mums and Dads to get it all done.

What do you do on Christmas Day?

I go to the Christmas services at my local Church.

How many elves work for you? Do you pay them? Do they get a day off each week?

There are 9 elves and they all get the national minimum wage, with Sunday off each week.

Where do you go for your summer holiday?

Lapland (quite anonymously, of course)

If you could redesign your outfit (seeing as how its based on the colours of a certain fizzy drink), what colour would it be?

It would be purple and gold. I really fancy royal colours!

If you weren't Father Christmas, what job would you rather be doing?

I love the  pleasure on the children’s faces when they open their presents. No other job would come close!

What would you like for Christmas?

An Amazon voucher.

Would you rather we left out cookies or mince pies, milk or coffee, carrots or sugar cubes for the reindeer, roast dinner or fish and chips

Fish and Chips

Finally, what would you like to say to everyone out there?

Remember that Christmas is the Birthday of Jesus

thank you for your time.

PS. I'd really like an office this year... and more book sales... and chocolate... and socks. I only have three pairs of socks that don't have holes in them.

A Tuscan Legacy book 4 - Ti Amo by Marion Ueckermann

She never wants to get married. He does. To her.
The day Alessandra Rossi was born, her mammà died, and a loveless life with the father who blamed the newborn for her mother’s death followed. With the help of her oldest brother, Rafaele, Alessa moved away from home the moment she finished school—just like her other siblings had. Now sporting a degree in architectural history and archaeology, Alessa loves her job as a tour guide in the city of Rome—a place where she never fails to draw the attention of men. Not that Alessa cares. Fearing that the man she weds would be anything like her recently deceased father has Alessa vowing to remain single. American missionary Michael Young has moved to Rome on a two-year mission trip. His temporary future in the country doesn’t stop him from spontaneously joining Alessa’s tour after spotting her outside the Colosseum. And being bold enough to tell her afterward that one day she’d be his wife. God had told him. And he believed Him. But Alessa shows …

A TIME TO PUSH DAISIES by Marion Ueckermann

Not every woman is fortunate enough to find her soulmate. Fewer find him twice.
JoAnn Stanson has loved and lost. Widowed a mere eighteen months ago, JoAnn is less than thrilled when her son arranges a luxury cruise around the British Isles as an early birthday gift. She’s not ready to move on and “meet new people”. Caleb Blume has faced death and won. Had it not been for an unexpected Christmas present, he would surely have been pushing up daisies. Not that the silver-haired landscape architect was averse to those little flowers—he just wasn’t ready to become fertilizer himself. To celebrate his sixty-fourth birthday and the nearing two-year anniversary since he’d cheated death, Caleb books a cruise and flies …

A Tuscan Legacy book 8 - Dolce Vita by Autumn Macarthur

La dolce vita, a sweeter life of love, awaits Rachel. But can she accept it?

Rachel Golding loves her uncomplicated life in Wales. Teaching art, a close-knit group of friends, and a strong and loving bond with her mother. But the trip to Italy to meet her Italian grandmother for the first time stirs unwelcome emotions — reluctance to forgive Nonna for a lifetime of rejection, and longing to know more about the father who died before her birth. Between her cousin’s accusation she sent a series of mysterious unsigned paintings to get revenge on the family, her mother’s wedding, and her realization she feels way more than she should for her best friend Jonathan, Rachel’s carefully planned life is spiraling out of control.

Always ready for adventure, especially with the woman he loves, Jonathan Davies gladly accompanies Rach on an impulsive return journey to Tuscany. Okay, so he also hopes the time together might give him the chance to tell her how he really feels. But now she needs his f…
