We've been asking GFW Writers and guests to share their fondest holiday memories and traditions. This week we have Theodore Rork (Ted). Check out his ideas on Christmas.
If you love Christmas, can you say why?
Christmas to me is like a love lost. It's wonderful while it lasts, but is soon just a memory.
What’s one thing you’d like to get rid of during the holiday season?
What’s the best Christmas present you ever received?
A rubber band shooting rifle when I was a kid.
What’s the best Christmas present you ever gave?
A clown cookie jar for my mother when I was eight years old. She kept it full of cookies and seemed to love it.
The old English film of “Christmas Carol”.
What’s your favorite Christmas carol?
What’s your idea of a perfect holiday season?
Standing out in the snow in the Bavarian Alps on Christmas Eve; watching all the people coming down from the hills with lighted candles in their hands and the quietness of the night.
Peppermint schnapps (you decide the amount)
or ground up peppermint sticks (1-2 tsp).
Sip and enjoy.
