Interview with A Star in the Night's David

I had a chance to talk with David, the main character in Jennifer Gladen’s Christmas book, “A Star in the Night” on Thanksgiving Day. Here’s what David had to say:

JG: Thanks for joining me David on this Thanksgiving Day. I won’t take up too much of your time since it is a holiday.

David: Thank you. I’m glad to be here.

JG: Thanksgiving marks the beginning of the Christmas Season. How do you celebrate Thanksgiving?

David: (Smiling) We have so much fun. Mom, Dad, me and baby Jesse all visit Grandmom’s house. She cooks a huge turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole and lots of cranberry sauce. At the end of the night, Grandmom gives me some early Christmas money. She does this every year.

JG: What do you do with the early Christmas money?

David: I love to go to the mall. Sometimes I even have enough money left to buy some of Mr. Rennetti’s Christmas cookies on Christmas Eve.

JG: That’s right. We read about those cookies in A Star in the Night. They sound yummy.

David: They’re the best!

JG: In A Star in the Night, you seem to have a companion on your way home. Tell me, what did you think about it?

David: What? Oh you mean that star. Yes, that was a beautiful star. I never seen anything like it before. I felt like it followed me home that night.

JG: You ran into some interesting people that Christmas Eve.

David: Yes, they were. And wonderful people who I’m grateful to know. You’ll have to read the book to learn more about them.

JG: That’s fair. We’re about out of time. Is there anything you’d like me to share with our readers?

David: Enjoy your Thanksgiving and be sure to share my story with your families.

JG: Okay, will do. Happy Thanksgiving. Now go on back with your family.
