**Q&A with LuAnn McLane**

What is your favorite holiday tradition?

When I was a child my favorite holiday tradition was driving around with my family to look at all of the holiday decorations and lights. I remember thresher delight and the ohs and ahs as my dad drove around neighborhoods.

What is your most unusual holiday memory?

We spent one Christmas in Disney World. I remember waking up in a hotel room with a tiny tree and Disney related items… feeling a little bit disappointed not to be home in my living room beneath the tree but then we headed to Magic Kingdom and became a Christmas day I will never forget.

What was your favorite moment under the mistletoe?

My favorite moment under the mistletoe is actually a scene in Mistletoe on Main Street when Ava, my sweet heroine, gets kissed by Clint.

What’s your favorite Christmas carol or holiday movie?

My favorite Christmas movie is Love, Actually. I just watched it not long ago and I never will get tired of seeing it. I also love all of the Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel. The holidays are such a magical time of year for second chances and falling in love.

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

I received a red and gold silk pair of pajamas that are a delight to sleep in.

This or That?

Peppermint Mocha or Pumpkin Spiced Latte?

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Egg Nog or Apple Cider?

Egg Nog (spiked with bourbon!)

Themed Christmas Tree or HodgePodge?

Oh HodgePodge for sure!

Old School Bulbs or Icicle Lights?

Old school… brings back memories.

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

I adore both! But giving is such a joy.
