**Q&A with Cindi Madsen**

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

Putting up the tree has always been a tradition I love. I also love Christmas morning when all the magic is in the air & everyone’s opening presents.

What is your most unusual holiday memory?

I’m trying to think of something unusual. The thing that comes to me is how my entire family used to drive up to the mountains to get a Christmas tree, all seven of us in the cab of my dad’s truck-one cab, no second row. We were basically two deep & when my mom opened the passenger door, she and whichever of my brothers or sisters was on her lap tumbled out into the snow. We all laugh about that memory.

What was your favorite moment under the mistletoe?

I feel a bit jipped because I’ve never had an under-the-mistletoe moment. I think I better remedy this year & hang a sprig over my doorway for when my hubby comes home.

What’s your favorite Christmas carol or holiday movie?

My husband and I watch Just Friends every year because it’s a funny movie, plus, you know, Ryan Reynolds. In An Officer and a Rebel, Kelsey talks about how while she usually avoids overly cheesy movies, Christmas movies are the exception. That was based on my Christmas-movie-watching habits. I watch movies I wouldn’t normally admit to because they make it feel like Christmas.

What’s the sexiest gift you ever got/gave?

Well, I love shoes. My husband got me a red pair covered in black lace. He called them lingerie for the feet. lol

This or That?

Peppermint Mocha or Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

I love pumpkin stuff, but I actually don’t drink coffee. So how about hot chocolate with a pumpkin muffin?

Egg Nog or Apple Cider?

I must be picky about Holiday drinks because both make me wrinkle my nose. If I HAD to choose, I’d go apple cider. (Funny enough, Kelsey and Nate argue about Egg Nog in my novella)

Themed Christmas Tree or HodgePodge?

I like themed, but since I have little kids it’s hodgepodge, and I find I like it that way too.

Old School Bulbs or Icicle Lights?

Old school bulbs

During this Holiday Season, is it better to Give or Receive?

Give. There’s nothing like seeing your loved ones’ faces light up.

Message from Cindi:

Whenever my mom would make this & put it somewhere to set, my siblings & I would always walk by & pinch off a piece so that by the time my mom went to get it, it’d already be half gone.
