What was your favorite Christmas/Holiday gift you ever received and why?

Being a green deer in the green woods, I don’t get many presents. It is just not something that is done a lot out here in the wilderness. At christmas time, all of a sudden many people come out to our forest, usually very busy complaining that there is no snow (or too much snow) this year and why there are no reindeer to be seen and what's for food and, mainly, how hard it is to find appropriate presents for someone. I don’t know much about christmas (I’m just a simple animal), but I am sure it wasn’t ment to be all about buying things. In January they are all gone and it is peaceful again.
A great gift, every year.

What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday food/recipe? What is so special about it?
Food is a problem during the winter as the leaves are already gone and the ground is cold and, usually later than Christmas, often covered with snow and ice. So the question of a favourite christmas dish sounds a bit strange to me. Some animals may get along okay by eating other animals, but this is not exactly my style. So it is moss and lychens in the winter, and some trees have more or less edible bark. Personally, I prefer fresh leaves and berries, grass and herbs from a summer meadow and, you might have guessed so, chocolate chip cookies.
What is your favorite Christmas/holiday craft project?
I have a very ambitious project: This year my goal is to write an answer to a question that I can not really relate to and use at east 100 words for it. This, I hope, could make it turn into a little story that I imagine to start a life of it’s own, just as if I’d throw all those words into a big bottle and watch them move about, see them playing, organizing themselves, making sense and nonsense and maybe, after a while, trying to figure out why they are there and what it all means. This would be nice.
What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday movie and why?
What is a Christmas/holiday movie? I am green and I know nothing of these things. Please ask me about things that I can tell you about, My neighbor animals and their little stories. Or what it is like to get up early on an autumn morning and annoy the whole lot by belling in the early morning mist until the forest echoes with the rustle of headache pill boxes being opened, a sound that would be music in my ears, weren’t they deafened already by my own sweet voice. Or the smell of the earth when it’s touched by sunshine.
What is your favorite Christmas/Holiday memory?
One day two years ago, in mid december, I came around the corner on my bicycle. (I am a deer who is open to contemporary means of transportation, in case you wondered.) I was about to meet someone for the first time and I was very curious. The moment I made that bend around that corner it began to snow for the first time of the year. It almost seemed like the snow announced my arrival and I came to the meeting point covered with white flakes. I wasn’t aware of it at the time, but that day I found love.
