A survey of more than 4,500 adults found that 72% of families have an annual Christmas tradition of going to the movies together over the holidays. That seems high, but there are two things you should know:
1. The survey was conducted by a movie theater chain, and they were polling their rewards members, so these are already movie fans.
2. Going to the movies is one of the BEST things to do with your family, because it’s something you can do together…without actually TALKING.
Back to the survey, the most anticipated movie this year is “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch.”
“Mary Poppins Returns” came in at #2, followed by “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Aquaman,” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet.”
“The Grinch,” “Fantastic Beasts,” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” are already out, and “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Aquaman” come out the week of December 19th.
Finally, the survey asked which Christmas movies you have a TRADITION of watching every year.
“How the Grinch Stole Christmas!” was the top answer, followed by “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “A Christmas Story, “Elf,” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.”
