Kate Campbell

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I love all things creative including singing (my other job) I am passionate about healthy living and love animals, kids & old people, they can all teach us so much if we take the time to listen. The ocean is my jam along with food, wine, family and friends. Kindness is everything. Oh and travel, I love to experience different countries, cuisines and cultures.

What brings you joy during the festive season?

Christmas decorations, the giving of gifts, days on the beach, family and holidays.

What Christmas traditions do you enjoy?

Christmas morning at my parents with my hubby & children. Christmas lunch, beach cricket and seeing my brothers, sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews.

What is your favourite Christmas book and/or movie?

What is your favourite Christmas book and/or movie? It’s a tie between National Lampoons vacation and Home Alone.

Finish this sentence. My wish this Christmas is….that my youngest son who is 8 years old will learn to communicate, become toilet trained and gain some level of self-independence in the near future.

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I like ticking boxes on lists (it’s been a busy day!) I love being with family and friends, especially my kids and my super dog Bill. Breathing in nature, exploring new places, meeting new faces and music makes me happy. I appreciate colour and good design and I do a bit of art and craft making for fun.

What brings you joy during the festive season?

Being with family and friends, preparing and sharing special food and wrapping and giving fun gifts! I really love leaving gifts under Giving Trees for charities like the Salvation Army… Christmas must be heartbreaking for those who are facing hard times – it makes me feel a little like I imagine Santa must feel.

What Christmas traditions do you enjoy?

We have a large and loving extended family and we have many celebrations together across the festive season. We like going to outdoor mass on Christmas Eve and we sometimes have had parts in the nativity scene re-enactment. My kids always leave out carrots, biscuits and beer for Santa and he usually leaves a letter for them along with presents stuffed in stockings and stacked under the tree!

What is your favourite Christmas book and/or movie?

I just adore the The Jolly Christmas Postman by Allan Ahlberg and Janet Ahlberg. And An Aussie Night Before Christmas by Yvonne Morrison is a book that was published just before my daughter’s first Christmas and we’ve been reading it during the festive season ever since.

Finish this sentence. My wish this Christmas is….for peace on earth (which starts in each of our hearts and homes).
