CJ and Jason
-What are some of the best and/or worst parts about being in a relationship during the holidays?
CJ: "The best is having an extended family but at the same time we have to make everyone happy so we end up eating three different dinners on holidays and probably gaining more weight than people that only have one family to satisfy, haha!"
-What's the most embarrassing anecdote from holidays past?
CJ: "It's no surprise that I am extremely awkward so when passing large dishes it's a little bit harder for me. I literally spill the beans out when holiday dinner."
-What song describes your relationship?
CJ: "There's no one song in particular. I would say any song we can rap too. We love to be goofy."
Jan and Jim

Jan: "Jim and I met many years ago in our Catholic Central High School study hall. WE reconnected at our 50th Class Reunion. Jim was living in Montana and Jan was in Caledonia, MI. Married four years later!"

Jim: "I would give her anything she wished for."
Jan: "I would give him anything he wished for."
What are your favorite holiday foods and drinks?
Jim: "Most foods and drinks during the holidays...no favorites."
Jan: "Christmas Eve is my favorite. My familiy's Christmas tradition is Breakfast for Dinner where I make a yummy egg strata served with mushroom sauce, Jim's best ever bacon, hash browns, Swedish/Irish rice pudding, fresh fruit, sweet rolls and Harvey Wallbanger cake. Mimosas, Bloody Marys and Irish Coffees are also enjoyed!"
