Are you a Christmas lover?

Do you have any Holiday / Christmas traditions?
My uncles create little funny plays and in the end everybody gets lots of chocolate.

Christmas was always celebrated at my parents' house but the real party was always on the 25th, starting at lunch with no time to finish. Family and friends came from all over.

What is your favourite food during the holidays?
In my parents' home, a Brazilian dish called Farofa. In my home the goose that Sergio made three years ago.

What is your most vivid childhood memory of Christmas?
Waking up on the 25th almost at lunch time and the house already full of people for a big party. 

What is on your wish list this holiday season / Christmas?
I don’t have a wish list. 

What was your favourite Christmas present as a child?
We did not receive gifts at Christmas but sometime during the season. My father gave me a beautiful book about Amazonian plumage. It was also a surprise coming from him.

Which gift did you want but never get?
The Falcon's helicopter. But we did not get Christmas present ... (I got it on my sister's birthday in January.🤪)

If you have to choose the perfect gift for your best friend / loved one from your own collection, what would it be?
The trapeze necklace 18karat gold.
