Are you a Christmas lover?
Not especially, I like the dark time in the year and the candles. But I don’t like to celebrate too much. 

Do you have any Holiday / Christmas traditions?
hmm, Family and if possible, snowboarding… 

What is your favourite food during the holidays?
I don’t have such a favorite… I would like to eat Thai this year.

What is your most vivid childhood memory of Christmas?
My mother was celebrating the christmastime very intense, I really liked it as child. The signing and the candles, the christmas tales.

I have a whole package of good christmas memories. 

What is on your wish list this holiday season / Christmas?
At least ones swimming in a hot spring...

What was your favourite Christmas present as a child?
It was a huge lion made of plush. I still have it. 

Which gift did you want but never get?
I don’t remember. I never had a important list of wishes.

If you have to choose the perfect gift for your best friend / loved one from your own collection, what would it be?
Oh, I think I would choose two of the marbled coffee cups, they are fine and precious but made for everyday use… its perfect to celebrate tea or coffee together. But honestly, for my loved one I would create something unique.
