Q&A with Amber Argyle

Q. What is your favorite holiday? 

A. Christmas. Apple cider, pine scented candles, and I especially love Christmas trees.

Q. What do you look forward to most when this time of year comes around? 

A. Presents. Especially this year. I know what my husband bought me (cause I bought it and told him to wrap it), and I can barely wait! -But I should probably answer that love the way my children's eyes light up, or reading the Christmas story . . . 
I'm a bad person. ;)

Q. Do you have a favorite Christmas movie or song? 

A. Silent Night. So peaceful.

Q. What's one of your favorite (or funniest) Christmas memories? 

A. Though the statute of limitations has passed, I still don't feel comfortable sharing that particular story.

No, I'm not kidding. Ummmm . . . My oldest son's first Christmas. My husband and I were definitely more excited than he was. He just wanted to go back to sleep. I love being a mom!

Q. If you could pick any Christmas character (from either a book or movie) that is most like you, who would it be?

A. I asked my husband and he said Scrooge. Rude, huh? My son says Rudolph's girlfriend. We don't even know her name, that's how memorable I am. 

Q. If you could be in any Christmas movie, which one would it be? And why?

A. One that's filmed somewhere warm and tropical. I'm swaddled in blankets and fleece at present. 

Q. Are there any holiday treats you look forward to eating around Christmastime?

A. Caramel turtles. My bestest friend always brings me a plate and I hoard them. 

Q. What do you like to do during the holidays?

A. We like to go see the lights at temple square in Salt Lake City. Also, we go for a sleigh ride to see the elk at Hardware Ranch.
