Festive Q&A with Sharon Atkinson!

What sits on top of your Christmas tree?

I have a gold star. I used to have Winnie the Pooh standing on his Honey Pot.

Favourite Christmas song?

It would have to be “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas”.

Favourite Christmas movie?

I love far too many to mention but my utmost favourite would have to be “Miracle on 34th Street”.

Favourite festive foodie treat?

Chocolate coated pretzels and chocolate coated marzipan. I can’t help it, they just seem to call to me.

The best part of Christmas is…

Is watching everyone’s faces when they open their Christmas presents.

The worst part of Christmas is…

Would have to be taking the tree down and of course untangling the lights and beads, even though when you packed them the previous year there was no way they could get tangled.

Your best, and worst, Christmas present?

Worst would have to be padded coat hangers, but the best so far was unwrapping my kindle.

When do you do your Christmas shopping?

If I am totally honest, I have already started. I have two presents already hidden in my cupboard. If I see something, then I have to get.

Any Christmas Day traditions?

Only started in the last few years, I have a practice Christmas day with friends. I do the full Christmas dinner and we have gifts a week before Christmas. I normally cook for 9 people.

Favourite Christmas book?

I am a child at heart. “Twas the Night Before Christmas”. I absolutely love it.

Favourite Christmassy book cover?

There are far too many to mention, but here are a few: The Gift by Cecilia Ahern, Christmas at the Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin, The Charm Bracelet by Melissa Hill, Calling Mrs Christmas by Carole Matthews etc.

Book sat at the top of your Christmas in July wishlist?

I have nothing in particular at the moment as I have pre-ordered quite a few already. I know that Carole Matthews has a new Christmas one coming out soon, so that will definitely be on my list.

When did you find out Santa wasn’t real? Or is he real?

Unfortunately it was a very young age. I lived in a flat and as we didn’t have a chimney, I knew that Santa couldn’t get to me and my brother. Now I am older, I love the magic of Christmas with two young nieces and another on the way, I have the perfect excuse to believe in Santa again.

How would you spend your ideal Christmas?

Definitely surrounded by family. If it has snowed outside on Christmas day, there is nothing better.



  1. This was so much fun to do Sophie, thank you. Just have to say, I have ordered another 9 Christmas presents. Definitely on top of it this year ;o)
    Merry Christmas in July ;o)

    1. I'm loving your style, Sharon! I wish I was so organised. Lately I've been a last-minute, fork-out-for-ridiculous-next-day-postage-prices kind of Christmas pressie shopper!

  2. I did do a few of those last year, only because gifts I were getting wasn't right when I saw them. ;o)

    1. I do that too! Or the few gifts I just have to keep for myself (or the choccies I eat...!)
