Q: What do you enjoy most/least about the holiday season?

A:  Most: so many people being in a cheerful mood; least: crowded stores and over-hype in commercials.

Q: f you were given a superpower, as a gift for one day, what would it be and what would you do?

A:  I would want the power to grant perfect understanding–to all the people of the world (i.e., the beauty pageant answer: world peace).

Q:  Do you call the jolly old fat man – Santa Claus, St. Nick, Kris Kringle, or something else?  If something else, what do you call him?

A:  Mostly Santa Claus, but occasionally St. Nick.

Q: If Santa was real and lived at the North Pole, would you want to visit and why?

A:  Of course–the logistics management alone would be worth a trip–not to mention, a peek at the “naughty and nice” list.

A:  World tour–stopping off to meet my online writer friends along the way.
