The Twelve Shows of Christmas
Everything is bustling and the eagerness of parties, get togethers, swarays, gifts, hugs, mistletoe and dressing up in holiday sweaters is growing. As we get closer and closer to Christmas day, all these social endeavors will have us swimming with emotions of happiness, spinning through the holidays like the perfect waltz, and it’s very diffident to want to stop. With this chaotic joy the season can pass by in a flash, which is the beauty of Christmas traditions. They stay the same, never age and when we take those moments to fully experience them, they almost stop time for a short while. Taking us to a place we know as a child and changing it up a little to reflect who we are now. Allowing us to notice the special gifts of life, love and family we receive everyday. That’s what makes them timeless.
With the twelve days to Christmas beginning soon we at One Tribe have a tradition, celebrating The Twelve Shows of Christmas. Each year Santa brings a big ol’ bag of awesome movies and from the hustle and bustle leading up, we cap off each night with a holiday favorite. It slows things down and gives us a chance to enjoy the season a little bit longer. We all have our favorites, but these particular festive movies showcase the stupendous amounts of style, performance, breath taking scenery and the joyous, sometimes blunderous Christmas spirit that makes them connect with any generation and the honor of being timeless. Follow along the twelve days with us and enjoy the classics with a few honorable mentionables.
