Countdown to Christmas Day 13: Festive Fun Q&A with Aven Ellis

This morning I am joined by author Aven Ellis who's answering a few festive questions in today's Countdown to Christmas feature. 

Do you do the whole traditional Christmas dinner or have alternative? 
The night before we usually have Tex-Mex: fajitas. On Christmas day either turkey or ham.

What’s your favourite Christmas song or carol? 
What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve by Barbara Streisand.

What film do you hope to curl up and watch on Christmas afternoon? 
Since I have a seven year old, we watch a lot of cartoons. And sports! All three of us are sports nuts.

Do you have a favourite Christmas book that you read again and again? 

Which singer/band would you like to turn up carol singing at your door? 
Barbara Streisand! 

Which celebrity would you like to snog under the mistletoe? 
Benedict Cumberbatch. If he wasn’t available, Henry Cavill. 

What’s top of your wishlist this Christmas? 
Workout DVDs and whole foods cookbooks. Need to kick start 2014 right! 

Now a few quickfire questions to close... 

Tree: real or artificial? Artificial.

Fairy Lights: White or Multi-Coloured? White.

Drink: Mulled Wine or Bucks Fizz? Neither. Glass of cab please!

Food: Mince Pies or Xmas Pud? These are not popular in America. But I am going to order one of your English Christmas Cakes this year!!

Games: Monolopy, Trivial Pursuit or something else? We don’t do games. We watch TV!
