Have you ever loved a celebrity or musician so much, you themed your entire Christmas around them?

Cecilia Latorre lives in Edmonton, and Prince, she told the CBC, "was everything" for her.

"Prince was my lifelong passion and, when he died this year, I was devastated," she told the news organization. "So I told my kids we would be having a purple Christmas, because that was Prince's favorite color."

And she's followed through. There's a Prince at the top of the tree (along with a star), the ornaments are all purple, the stockings and wreath – also purple, and there's even a Prince nativity scene. Check it out in the video by the CBC below:

She also wrote a small explanation for her love of Prince on the CBC website. She mentions her daughter loves the purple so much, they talked about doing this every year from now on.

"And we will, because Prince is in our hearts. Forever and ever and ever," she said.

There's also an audio interview available here:
