What is your favorite holiday memory?

My favorite holiday memory was going to church on Christmas Eve when I was a young child. We would go to the 4pm mass and I would sing in the choir singing church Christmas carols. Then after mass, my parents and I would go home and have dinner with some of my family members and get to open a few presents before Santa came. Christmas Eve is my favorite holiday memory of all in the years of lived so far.

Who is your favorite character in the show?

My favorite character in the show is Katie because I love her Irish accent and her comic timing in the show!

Where is your hometown?

My hometown is Wallingford, CT. A wonderful town filled with awesome people! It’s well known for Trail of Terror, The Oakdale, and many other good stuff

How many brothers/sisters do you have?

Unfortunately, I’m a only-child. But’s that’s a good thing, lol!

What is your favorite song in the show?

My favorite song in Meet Me in St. Louis would be “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”. This song so beautifully written and hits you in the heart in so many ways. I love it so much!
