I've had so much fun sharing ideas for Family History Month celebrations this October. As we approach another weekend, we need to think entertainment for Tip #25.
Unlike our home movie night, this movie night relies on the professional moviemakers for our viewing pleasure. And, the family gets to choose a historical favorite film that works for everyone. Plan for plenty of popcorn, ice cream, soda, chips, salsa, pita bread, hummus or whatever refreshments draw crowds in your household.
Movie ideas include, but are not limited to:
· Fiddler on the Roof
· 1776 (The musical which features a very young William Daniels aka Mr. Fenney from Boy Meets World)
· Dr. Zhivago
· Gone with the Wind
· The Diary of Anne Frank
· The Jazz Singer (the song Coming to America makes the entire movie worthwhile).
· The Russian Ark
· Russia: Land of the Tsars
· Catherine the Great
· Anastasia (great animated adventure to enjoy with the youngsters)
· Nicholas and Alexandra
These are a few of my favorites, and with the vast selection of historical films, I am sure you can select at least 3 or 4 movies from an historical era which impacted your family.
So, sit back, relax and enjoy the movie!
