Meet Blair Busbee, who plays the Ghost of Christmas Past in A Christmas Carol.

How many times have you been in A Christmas Carol?
This is my first Christmas Carol extravaganza!
 
What are your favorite holiday traditions?
I always get to open one present on Christmas Eve. And it's always pajamas.

What's your favorite thing about the Bay Area during the holidays?
I love to go to Macy's to watch the puppies and kittens that play in the display window on the corner of Stockton and O'Farrell. Then, I fantasize about adopting one of them. Then I cry, because I can't...and I go to the other side of Macy's where I oo and ah at the hundreds of reefs glowing in the windows.

What is your favorite moment in A Christmas Carol?
My favorite part of A Christmas Carol is the Ghost of Christmas Future sequence at the end. I especially love when the business men are hissing and laughing together. On a lighter note, my other favorite moment is when Little Fan gives Boy Scrooge their mother's ring. I'm a bit sentimental...but the mean business men still win.

Who is your favorite character in A Christmas Carol?
My favorite character is SCROOGE! I love to watch the little boy in him slowly shine through. I melt when I watch him during the Fezziwig dance, and by the end he's giggling and dancing in the streets!

What is your favorite holiday food/treat?
My momma's chicken and dumplings! And, am I allowed to say hot toddies?

What is your favorite Christmas movie?
It's a Wonderful Life. Get's me every time. "George Bailey, I'll love you till the day I die." ...or Home Alone, because haven't we all slapped ourselves in the face and screamed because we wanted to be like Kevin when he puts on aftershave for the first time??? Right?...Right.
