5 Quick Holiday Questions with Vanessa Marie Carter

Q) Did you have a favourite Christmas songs when you were a kid?

VMC) I always really liked the good Christmas classics, Bing Crosby for the win!! But when I was a kid (and still now) Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays by NSYNC was always a fave.

Q) Do you have a favourite Christmas song to play?

VMC) I really love doing Blue Christmas, or Silent Night 🙂

Q) If you could partner up with any artist for a collaboration on a Christmas song, who would you choose?

VMC) I was pretty jealous when I heard the Meghan Trainor & Brett Eldredge collab for Baby It's Cold Outside. So probably that!

Q) What is your favourite beverage for a holiday party?

VMC) I've never been a big sweet drink person, but I do love a good festive red wine sangria

Q) If you could only have 1 dessert after Christmas dinner, what would you choose?

VMC) My Grandma's Brandy Snaps... I think she purposely never makes enough so she can see us all fight for them!

We also asked Vanessa if she had a favourite recipe to share and she said, "I have so many favourites!! But my Mom makes a mean shortbread that I look forward to every year."

And here's the recipe!
