Today we have the honor of celebrating with Christine Feehan! Let’s see how this amazing author spends her holiday!
Christmas with Christine Feehan
We take Christmas very seriously in my house! I have four Christmas trees.
The tree in the kitchen is for my grandchildren, but started with my darling little Shylah’s suggestion. It was 2 feet tall when we started and it is 6 feet tall now! All of my grandchildren help to decorate this tree and it warms my heart to see it.
This is the I-spy tree. We have so much fun playing I-spy, looking for certain ornaments with the children. This tree is located in the living room with a train that circles around its base.
This is my beautiful peacock tree and I absolutely love it! I love peacocks and peacock colors. This is located downstairs in the rec room and it’s the tree we put all the gifts under.
My Favorite Holiday Memory
I have so many wonderful holiday memories, but the one that stands out and really makes me happy happened many years ago when my brothers and sisters and I were all children. My Mom was always very good at guessing what we got her each year, so one year my Dad, who was quite the prankster, put weights in her gift boxes, to weigh down the presents and made each box the same exact size to thwart her attempts to guess what they were by simply lifting them and shaking. That year we caught her late at night checking out the gift boxes when she thought we were all asleep. She got busted! Dad made all of us kids take turns guarding the gifts so Mom couldn’t check out what she got ahead of time.
Favorite Holiday Ornament
My Mom gave me my very first set of Christmas ornaments. They were a set of early Enesco ornaments and even after all of this time a few of them have survived numerous moves, children and grandchildren. I also love the ornaments that my readers send to me. I have received ornaments from all over the world and those are very special to me.
Favorite Holiday Tradition
By far, my favorite holiday tradition is playing I-spy with my grandchildren. We gather around the I-spy tree looking for specific ornaments as part of our game.
