Playing a vampire on TV would seem to indicate Halloween would be Claire Holt's favorite holiday, but "The Originals" star has another more wonderful time of the year. "I LOVE Christmas!!" Holt told Yahoo TV. And when 'tis the season, she likes to put on Mariah Carey's holiday album on repeat. Sounds like the actress is much more sentimental than her character, the snarky and cynical Rebekah.
