I believe intentional family time helps bring and keep families together. In the Borget house, we’ve held a Family Movie Night tradition for years. Every week, we sit down as a family to watch, rate, and review a movie. It’s the one night a week that we can all switch off from the madness of the world and spend some quality, undistracted time together. 

The BIG Issue with Family Movie Nights

The hectic nature of everyday life for some families can make setting aside time for a weekly movie tradition difficult. For other families, it may not be finding the time that’s challenging but finding a suitable movie.

Voting wastes time, and too many conflicting opinions can lead to arguments ruining your special night before it’s even begun! (We’ve all been there!)

It helps you keep track of the many movies you watch and includes some fun family activities to liven up your night. Inside there are ideas for getting your movie night tradition started and ways to spice it up with some guidelines, recipes, and of course, lots and lots of movie ideas!
