The 21-year-old actress answered a holiday-themed Q&A just for JJJ readers. (And we may have thrown in a few Awkward questions before tonight’s episode!)
Can Ashley name all nine of Santa’s reindeer? What’s her favorite holiday memory? Better yet, who does Ashley want to kiss under a mistletoe this holiday season?! And last but certainly not least, were we able to squeeze any Awkward season four info out of her?

JJJ Holiday Takeover Q&A – Ashley Rickards
Just Jared Jr.: What are your favorite holiday movies?
Ashley: Anything claymation.
JJJ: Got any favorite holiday traditions?
Ashley: Opening one gift on Christmas Eve and pretending I don’t know what’s in all the others.
JJJ: Ha! Alright, tell us – what’s the best holiday gift you’ve ever received?
Ashley: A handmade sweater that my mom gave me with a picture of myself on it. #FabricPaint.
JJJ: Do you have any good holiday plans for this year?
Ashley: New York for New Years and the holidays with my family.
JJJ: Nice! What’s your best childhood holiday memory?
Ashley: Crying when my parents bought me a dictionary.
JJJ: OMG! Okay, if you could kiss ANYONE under the mistletoe this year – who would it be?
Ashley: Bruno Mars.
JJJ: Do you have a favorite holiday food or dessert you can share?
Ashley: Apple crisp.
JJJ: Yum! Can you name all nine of Santa’s reindeer… without the help of Google?
JJJ: Do you have a favorite ornament for your Christmas tree?
Ashley: A ninja star.
JJJ: Awesome! What’s the best holiday-themed book you’ve ever read?
Ashley: Frosty the Snowman.
JJJ: Alright, let’s talk about Awkward. It’s clear Jenna is still into Matty. Personal Opinion: Do you even want to see the romance rekindled, or would you rather she tried moving on?
Ashley: I would rather she moved on, preferably to Bruno Mars.
JJJ: Ha! Okay, we got to see Jenna make up with her mom… but have yet to see any apologies made to her dad. Is that something we’ll see later on?
Ashley: Probably not.
JJJ: What about Jenna and Val’s relationship – is it broken beyond repair or is hope still alive?
Ashley: I think as long as Jenna gets Val a cat, all will be good.
JJJ: Jenna’s style really improved this season. Is that something that will stick around post-Colin?
Ashley: Yes, I’ve been promised the braid is not coming back.
JJJ: Can you spill anything about Awkward season four and what we can expect from Jenna and the gang?
Ashley: No that would be a #SpoilerAlert!
