Favourite Christmas food?
Sarah: Both of our mums cook a really good trifle. It’s the best on the table at family Christmas and it’s a tradition.
James: The ham which lasts for three or four days, so it’s not just on Christmas Day that you have it – it’s the next morning with eggs, at lunch in a toasted sandwich and at night with a salad.
Best Christmas skill?
James: I’m a good cleaner-upper. That’s an important skill!
Sarah: I used to make gingerbread houses.
Favourite Christmas Carol?
Sarah: I really love Mariah Carey’s Christmas album. It reminds me of family time growing up.
James: “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid. It’s so good.
New Year’s resolution?
James: To follow through.
Sarah: I have a list of things I’d like to do, like picking up my Japanese again and singing more. I don’t want to be like a Nike commercial, but maybe my New Year’s resolution should be Just Do It!
What are you hoping Santa will bring this year?
James: I’d love a song from my daughter. I want her to stand and sing me a song – it’s the cutest thing in the world!
