I would have to say my great grandfather on my mother's side of the family. He passed away in 1993. He lived in a different state from me and would always come here for Christmas. He loved Christmas as much as I do.
As for someone famous, it'd have to be Dolly Parton. I adore her. I would love to talk with her about where she was born and raised....East Tennessee. I call the Smoky Mountains my second home and I think it would be neat to chat with her about her home.
