We try to have movie night as a family at least once a month. Since our daughter is still young, we allow her to pick out an age appropriate movie to watch first, and then after she goes to bed my husband and I will stay up and watch another. I prefer comedies and my husband prefers action movies, so we usually try to find a happy medium.
We believe that watching movies together as a family builds our relationship and allows us uninterrupted time to spend together. During movie night, we turn off all of our electronics and just spend time with each other. It is nice to spend an evening unplugged from the online world and enjoying good conversation.
On movie nights, we usually grab pizza for dinner and then will pop popcorn to enjoy during the movie. We love adding toppings to our popcorn, which is sort of a tradition in itself. When I was growing up, my grandmother would use the stove to pop popcorn and allow us to choose our own toppings. My favorite? Parmesan cheese. I know that sounds crazy, but still to this day I enjoy parmesan cheese on my popcorn. My husband prefers garlic salt on his, and my daughter likes hers plain. Occasionally, I will also mix some chocolate candy pieces in with our popcorn, if I am feeling like a little something sweet.
When I make popcorn, I always separate it out into multiple bowls. I grew up with two brothers who always had their hands in my popcorn bowl, and as much as my mother tried to teach me how to share, I just don’t like people touching my popcorn. haha! So I usually make a bowl for each of us.
