+++ What is so special for you at the Advent and Christmas time?

When I had no kids I never liked X-mas, but now I like it very much, because it’s a warm period with a special atmosphere which speaks to the kids imagination. So I like it to decorate and create stuff together with my kids. And I like to make special food with them.

+++ Do you have a Christmas tradition?

Since we have kids we have the tradition to visit the 2nd x-mas day a theatre show. On the first day we always go to our family.

+++ Do you have a Christmas style?

+++ What is your favorite memory as a child  about Christmas ?

My best memory is the X-mas show I ice-skated in when I was a little girl. I was a motivated ice-skater and love to do shows, especially in X-mas style!

+++ When you place on your Christmas tree and how it is (he) decorated?

I place it around the 15th of December and it is a totally non styled tree, with all kind of balls, little puppets, paper-folded objects in it. No concept just hang in what you like. The fuller the better!
