What the holiday season is really all about is spending time with family and enjoying time-honored traditions. Of course, it’s easy to lose sight of that, what with all the frenzied shopping and general commercialization of everything. Sometimes a family will come up with a new tradition. That’s what this family did: every Christmas when they get together, they record a dance video with Christmas music. They don’t just dance about randomly, instead they put a lot of work into choreography and rehearsal. Since there are eight siblings involved, it’s quite the dance troupe!
They really outdid themselves for the fourth installment of the family’s Christmas dance. As one of the eight dancers described it: “My family’s annual Christmas tradition is to make a dance to a Christmas song. There are eight children in my family and half of us are now married with our own kids. This year is our 4th annual music video set to Justin Bieber’s ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town.’ It’s our best work yet. Another fun fact is that every year we wear our Mother’s quirky Christmas sweaters!”
When you think of Justin Bieber — if you think of Justin Bieber — you don’t associate the Canadian pop sensation with Christmas music. And yet, in 2011, the then 17 year-old released his first Christmas album, “Under the Mistletoe.” The album was a chart-topper when it was came out and that made Bieber the first solo artist to have three number one albums before he turned 18. We can be sure that his adoring fans would love to spend some time under the mistletoe with their idol!
As you’ll see in the video posted below, the eight siblings do a superb job dancing to Bieber’s music. Mom’s sweaters really do make it that much more spectacular. Hopefully this fun family will keep their Christmas dance tradition going for many years to come.
