Go to the Movies


Lots of great movies come out around Christmas, and one FE member and her family take advantage of the new flicks every year.

"Every Christmas Eve, my family has the tradition of going to a matinee movie. When we were little kids, it was always an animated Disney movie – they used to come out every year about that time. As we got older, we started choosing a variety of different movies, really whatever we could all agree on, sometimes with mixed results. One year we went Sleepy Hollow – definitely not something to get you in the Christmas spirit! After the movie, it's dusk or dark, so we drive through our neighborhood looking at Christmas lights, before we return home to sit in front of the fire."
