Matthew: (his fondest Christmas memory) When I was six, I woke up before anyone else and I heard Santa's bells. That year, all of our family came over to have Christmas lunch… the best Christmas ever.
Matthew: (on the best Christmas present he's ever received) My beloved NEMO skimboard, which I got last year. I take it to every beach I go to.
