Have you ever seen a movie at the theater on Christmas?

During our daughter's high school & college years it became a mini-tradition to find a movie we all wanted to see & we'd go - usually - on Christmas Eve, sometimes on Christmas Day. We had moved away from all extended family & we three enjoyed movies. We'd "saved up" a movie we were excited to see for the occasion; hearty meal at home first, early showing, crockpot meal waiting when we got home.

That sounds great! What an awesome tradition.

We've done the same thing for years too. I enjoy the tradition and it helped when we moved far from family to have this to make us feel closer.

To me, the holidays are a time to refocus on relationships & build memories. There are a lot of ways to do that. There aren't a lot of "wrong ways" to accomplish that if everyone's interests are incorporated somehow into your traditions together & refocusing priorities. Rejecting some older traditions in favor of building some new ones for the ppl practicing them just makes sense.

I have not, but that sounds like a fun idea... I might see what's playing this Christmas.

Nope. Every Christmas, I celebrate with my mother's side, and then I stay the night and help clean up.
