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 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 …

For as long as she can remember, Keri Jackson has despised the hype and commercialism around Christmas so much she seldom enjoys the holiday. Will she get her wish and be free of the angst to truly enjoy Christmas this year?

A devout Christian at heart, Jeremy Hinton, a Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Spiritual Mentor and Energy Medicine Practitioner has studied all of the world’s religions and homeopathic healing modalities. But when a rare bacterial infection threatens the life of the woman he loves, will all of his faith and training be for naught?

Excerpt: She turned to face him, took his hands in hers and stood on tiptoe to brush her lips across his. “Thank you. I’ll bet you do wondrous work with your patients. You sure have made me feel better.”

He caressed her cheek with the back of his hand. “I’m not the Healer, love, just the vessel. Not the Source of Wisdom, only the messenger.”

Keri’s insides turned to mush at his use of the term ‘love…

Christmas, Yes!
Christmas is a wonderful time of year—the most wonderful if the song can be trusted.From Thanksgiving to December 25th, we overload the DVR with Christmas movies.Carols, albeit beautiful, are played exhaustively, and we regale the traditions of family and all manner of wonderful things.Even for Christians, the holiday has become so commercialized and sappy (don’t get me wrong, I love a good dose of sap every now and again—my DVR is full) that we sometimes forget that Christmas brings with it some serious messages we shouldn’t forget. One of those messages is the importance of saying, “Yes” to God, even when we don’t know what consequences will come because of it—or even when we do know.
We’ve heard the annunciation story: once upon a time an angel came to Mary; she said yes. Joseph wasn’t convinced until he received his own angelic visit, and then everything was ab-fab until there was no room at the inn and the baby Jesus was relegated to the barn…
And they all lived hap…
