12 Days of Blogmas Day 8: Interivew with Laura A. Grace

I am so excited to share with you today our Christmas interview with Laura! I hope you guys enjoy it!

Laura has a thrilling obsession with supporting her favorite authors. From hosting blog tours to throwing virtual parties, she's always seeking new ways to spread the book love.

More than once her handsome ninja husband has heard the squeals of a late night fangirl as she reads a new plot twist or hears from her author friends. She and her family live in North Carolina, where they wield plastic lightsabers and keep an eye out for wandering unicorns.


In case you forgot the questions, here's the list again!

: Favorite Christmas tradition
 2: Favorite Christmas memory
 3: Favorite Christmas book
 4: Favorite Christmas food/recipe
 5: Favorite Christmas movie
 6: Favorite Christmas decoration
 7: Favorite Christmas activity
 8: Favorite Christmas drink (eggnog, hot chocolate, apple cider, punch)
 9: Favorite Christmas blog post idea
10: Favorite Christmas story (shorter than a book, more like Night Before Christmas, or Eloise at Christmastime)

And here are Laura's answers! Enjoy!

Hi, Erica! I am SO excited to be here! :D

1. One of my favorite Christmas traditions is our family either baking cut-out sugar cookies and decorating them or buying a new family ornament (which tends to lead to three new ones LOL).

2. Ooo tough one! I think one of my favorite Christmas memories is when my Mom made a homemade cookbook with some of my family’s favorite recipes when my husband and I thought we might be moving to Cambodia.

However, I will say one of the strongest Christmas memories I have is when I was in 4th or 5th grade. My Grandma said I could choose one gift under the Christmas tree to open early. I, of course, gladly went to choose one, but when I got on all fours to grab one near the middle, I happened to put one of my hands in cat throw up. LOL! I can say that after that incident, I always turned the light on and checked before putting my hand anywhere on the floor. LOL!

3. I sadly don’t have a favorite Christmas book. :/ It’s been a few years since I have read any, but I have strongly enjoyed many of Melody Carlson’s Christmas books, with maybe The Christmas Bus being the one I enjoyed the most.

4. Our family doesn’t have one set Christmas food since my husband is lactose intolerant and I’m allergic to wheat. (Yeah, doesn’t mix the best with my extended family’s love for lasagna on Christmas day. Haha!) We’ve make a “cookout” kind of dinner with hotdogs and hamburgers as well as a dairy free and wheat free lasagna in the past. This year my kids mentioned they would like another cookout style meal while my husband and I are going for an Asian one. J

5. If I didn’t consistently miss them (LOL), it would most likely be A Christmas Story. It used to be an annual tradition growing up to watch that while wrapping last minute Christmas presents.

6. Another tough one because I love so many of the Christmas decorations! I really thought about buying some outside décor, but refrained since I wanted to get a bunch of stuff. Haha! Otherwise, I think it’s ornaments of all kinds. J

7. My favorite Christmas activity is making cookies with my family. I love that we can all come together and share good laughter while eating excellent cookies. ;)

8. I have to confess that I’m pretty boring and don’t drink any special Christmas drinks except water and juice. *hides*

9. A good old 12 Days of Christmas blog post always gets me. ;) Seriously, I love it and host an annual FB party along this theme because it’s so fun to do something for twelve days with others online. J

10. Hands down, my favorite Christmas story is the birth of Christ, but especially the shepherds. I’m always touched by them telling the entire town of what they saw.

I hope you all enjoyed this. Sound off in the comments because we'd both love to hear from you!


  1. So blessed to be on your blog, Erica! Had a great time answering your questions! :D

  2. Aw! This was such a great interview, You are so sweet and fun, Laura. :)

  3. Great interview, Laura & Erica! Laura, you'll have to share some of your favorite cookie recipes with me (or you could just drop some off at my house...) 😄

    1. Thanks! It's always great to hear from people who read the posts!
