If you answered mostly As, you're The Ice Princess: Ever see that movie where the ice princess locks herself in her own palace, and repeats her "Let It Go" mantra to herself? Hey, the holidays aren't for everyone and that's okay. Spend the season focusing on you and your well being. Maybe enjoy a new bath tub tradition, light some scented candles and melt away until the weather gets a bit warmer.
If you answered As and Bs, you're into the Rocky Mountain Cozies: Let's head up to the cabin and get cozy!

I don't blame you, sounds like a dream!
Answered mostly Bs, consider yourself The Gatherer: You love a good holiday gathering, and find yourself in the kitchen most of the season.

Take a look at our collection of cookbooks for some hosting inspo and make sure that you've got all the essentials before the big holiday eve dinners happen.
