InsideQ: When do you start decorating for the holidays?

Elise: I typically start pretty late. I love to buy gifts early in the season, but I don’t start to decorate until close to the holidays.

InsideQ: Any holiday traditions?

Elise: My family’s holiday traditions include celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas. We typically give eight small gifts for Hanukkah, one gift on Christmas Eve, and a big gift on Christmas Day. In addition, we also sponsor a family in need so that they can also enjoy gifts at the holidays.

InsideQ: Favorite holiday ornament?

Elise: I love some of the ornaments that my brother and I made in elementary school. One in particular has my five-year-old thumb print on it, which I then drew into a little Christmas mouse. It’s just too funny.

InsideQ: Favorite holiday food?

Elise: I really love all of the food during the holiday season, but I think my two favorites are pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce.

InsideQ: Wishes for the New Year?

Elise: Oh, this is a tough one because I have so many wishes. Universally, I wish for happiness for all beings.
