Cambria Hebert is an author who wrote her first book at the age of fifteen. It was terrible. But the passion for writing never went away so years later when she opened her laptop and started typing she worked until she wrote a book – Masquerade - that she hopes everyone will be as excited about as she is.
Cambria is obsessed with werewolves and is terrified of chickens (they are creepy!) She is an animal lover that would choose coffee over food and her favorite TV show is the Vampire Diaries (Hell-O Damon!)
When she isn’t writing you can find her stalking the young adult aisles at Barnes and Noble.

I want to give a big Thank you to Anna for having me on her blog today as part of the Heven and Hell blog tour! When Anna and I emailed about what we could do for today Anna suggested that I write a post about Christmas because the holiday time is upon us!!
So, I have been thinking about what to write – And I can’t think of anything! LOL!! Well, okay I can… but I really don’t want to write a big long paragraph about how I make Christmas cookies and Santa so I thought I would do something a little different. Kind of like my Christmas Stats. LOL! I will give you a bunch of answers to a bunch of random holiday questions!! So hold onto your mug of Christmas Cocoa and get ready!
My favorite holiday Tradition: Waking up on Christmas morning and going down stairs to open gifts. We do this every single year from the time I was a child to now – when my children do it. My husband and I even did it before we had kids. It’s tradition. Now a days we put on a big pot of coffee and I put a pan of homemade cinnamon rolls in the oven right when we come down. Then we settle in the living room (while everything brews and bakes) and watch the kids rip into their gifts. We pass gifts to each other too! Then about halfway through I must have my coffee and I grab a cup quick and return to the opening! By the time we are all done you can’t even see the floor because there is wrapping paper everywhere! When I was a child we would cover our dog (a golden lab) in all the bows and he would lay there all happy covered in colorful ribbons!
My Favorite holiday memory: My favorite holiday memory is from when I was a teenager and my mother and I would go to a Christmas tree farm to cut down a tree. Two women, one saw = a lot of trouble!! That farm had some crazed chickens (shudder) and an emu and a three legged dog too…. It was quite the adventure!
My Favorite holiday cookie: I like shortbread cookies that my mom makes. They are covered in powdered sugar. She doesn’t make them every year so they are a treat! I also really like sugar cookies that are decorated with icing and sprinkles!
Best gift I ever got: Are you kidding? Do you think I can name one? I can’t. LOL. I like ALL presents.
Favorite Christmas movie to watch: The Grinch. (His puppy is cute!)
Favorite Holiday Decoration: The mistletoe! He he he….. Okay it’s not my favorite but I do have some hanging up. My favorite is the Christmas tree.
Least favorite thing about the holidays: The crowds and all the money that mysteriously disappears from my bank account….
Candy Cane? Yes please!
Christmas music? I actually like it! Lol. This year I started listening to it before thanksgiving!
Favorite Christmas Book: Twas The Night Before Christmas
What we do every Christmas Eve: Leave cookies for Santa! And Milk! And we also sprinkle reindeer food in the grass – it’s basically oats and glitter. LOL. We also put carrots out and after the kids go to bed I go and crunch up the carrot and put it in the driveway like they were out there eating it. He he he. We leave cookie crumbs on the plate too!
Snow on Christmas? Of course!
Turkey or Ham for Christmas Dinner: Ham
Eggnog? No thanks.
And can I pose a question to all of you? Is mailing Christmas cards a dying tradition? I still mail them every year but every year I get less and less….. Course maybe someone is trying to tell me something…. YIKES! But I like getting them! We tape every one we get on the back of the front door and look at them throughout the holiday. I always send out the kind with a photo on it of my kids…. I like those kind. J
New Year’s Eve? I won’t lie – I usually fall asleep before the ball drops!
So there you have it! Some holiday stats from me about my time during the holidays!! How about all of you? What are your favorite traditions, cookies and movies? How do you celebrate New Year’s Eve and what was the best gift you ever received?
Thanks to Anna for having me here today!! You rock! I hope everyone had a blessed and memorable holiday!!!
