12 holiday interviews with 12 amazing artists!

Here we are featuring Mitchy Collins of Oh Honey! We spoke with Mitchy about his mature wishlist to what Christmas song makes him cringe!

What is on your holiday wish list?
Hmm… maybe some new vinyl would be cool, some art or photos to hang in my apartment or maybe a nice set of pots and pans… some clothes would be nice. It’s funny how your wish list changes as you get older. and also I’m always dreaming about a 1941 Gibson J-45.

Do you have any holiday traditions?
We don’t do it so much anymore… But when I was younger, every Christmas Eve my family and I would go to the grocery store and each buy a couple TV dinners and that’s all we could eat Christmas day… Just hang out in our PJs, eat TV dinners, and watch movies… I miss that.

What Christmas movie do you always find yourself watching no matter how many times you have seen it?
100% A Christmas Story. It’s the best one. Duh. You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!

Everyone has a favorite holiday song, but which one makes you cringe?
I really can’t stand listening to “Chestnuts Roasting on An Open Fire.” I don’t know — there’s just something about it.

Today, we spoke with Danielle Bouchard of Oh Honey and learned about what her favorite claymation Christmas movies are, as well as what her family traditions consist of!

What is on your holiday wish list?
…dresses! From Free People. Because I don’t have enough already. New black booties. A gift card to Sephora and a couple records to add to my vinyl collection.

If you haven’t yet, if you could perform a cover of any holiday song, what song would you cover and why?
We covered “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree” this year! It’s such a classic and is so much fun.

Do you have any holiday traditions?
I’m from the Albany-area, which is only 3 hours north of the city, but I don’t get to go home much, so I love our holiday traditions. My family is super close and it’s awesome. A few days after Thanksgiving, we blast Christmas tunes and decorate the tree. Usually my mom comes up with a zumba routine and dances around the house, and my sister chases our dog around trying to put a Santa costume on her. Then on Christmas Eve, we host a huge party and everyone gets wasted. On Christmas morning, we unwrap presents, and my dad and I peel potatoes while drinking mimosas.

What Christmas movie do you always find yourself watching no matter how many times you have seen it?
My sister and I are obsessed with those claymation movies: Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph, the Little Drummer Boy. We own them all and we watch them together every year. Also The Santa Clause with Tim Allen… and I don’t know how Harry Potter became a holiday classic, but we watch those too since they’re always on TV! And also because I am shamelessly the biggest Harry Potter fan ever.

As a band, do you spend the holidays together?
This is only our second holiday season as a band, but sadly not! My family is from upstate New York and Mitchy’s family is from Jersey, and we don’t get to see them much, so we both like to take the opportunity to spend time with them when we can.

Everyone has a favorite holiday song, but which one makes you cringe?
I truthfully really love them all. Especially when I’m shopping at the Union Square holiday market in the city, and it’s so cold I can’t feel my hands, but it’s okay because Christmas songs are blasting and I’m downing a fancy drink from Starbucks… the holidays never get old to me!
