1. What are you doing for Christmas this year?
I will go the Christmas mass with my wife and maybe have some Asian food for dinner, since they may be the only places open on Christmas Day.

2. What’s your favourite Christmas song?
'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' by the Jackson 5.

3. Can you name all of Santa’s reindeer (without the help of Google)?
No, I can’t.

No, but I am going to the circus show, Le Cirque d’hiver Bouglione, on Christmas Eve.

5. What’s the funniest gift you have ever received?
I can’t remember.

6. What’s your go-to Christmas film?
I watched Home Alone a lot when I was younger. 

7. What are your Christmas traditions?
We don’t really celebrate Christmas where I come from. But since I started on tour with Totem, I've normally spent it with some of my good friends. This year I will spend it with my lovely wife since she is on tour with me.

8. What do you hope to find in your stocking this year?
Anything in my stocking I would be happy to have it. I like surprises.

9. Which person would you most like to meet under the mistletoe?
My wife.

A nice steak.

11. What’s your favourite Christmas memory?
