Big families mean big fun and this crazy Christmas video proves it

Cecilia Music - published on 12/09/16

Either dancing runs in the genes or there’s something in the water in Utah

The Orgill family in Utah is like most, with their own special family Christmas traditions. Theirs is making an annual Christmas video as a family.

But when you throw 8 kids into the mix, things start to get really fun. And though half of the “kids” are now grown and married, the siblings hold fast to the tradition. Now in their fifth year, the family decided to go above and beyond their usual dance routine, throwing a fine collection of ugly Christmas sweaters and even a mannequin challenge into the mix, all in one soon-to-be-viral video.

Watch and enjoy, and check out their video from last year too:
