Bonus Content: Christmas

The final season of the year will be a mini-season all about Christmas. The episodes will release, 1 per week, every Wednesday in December before Christmas. These episodes will be a compilation of short holiday segments from each of the women I interviewed during the year. 

After the main interview, we will record a brief holiday segment using the following questions as guidelines.


  • How do you embrace Holiday Homemaking as a single homemaker?  (Decorating, hospitality, etc). What does a typical Christmas Day look like for you as a single homemaker? Who are you with? What are you eating? How are you celebrating?

  • Do you have a special recipe that you always make at Christmas?

  • Do you have special holiday traditions that you like to do every year? (Caroling, gingerbread house competition, working at a soup kitchen, cutting your own tree, sending Christmas cards...etc.)

  • Rapid Fire Q&A

    • Favorite Christmas Movie?

    • Gingerbread or sugar cookie?

    • Fake tree or real?
