And they had so much fun, of course, that it’s now become the family’s customary way to launch the holiday season.

Around this time each year, the siblings gather to practice and film their Christmas dance, with various other family members making cameo appearances. This year, that includes their parents, three in-laws, three nieces and three dogs!

Ammon Orgill, who spearheads the whole effort, posted this year’s dance earlier this week on his Facebook page. The entire clan, all clad in ugly Christmas sweaters, rock out for more than three minutes to Ariana Grande’s 2013 Christmas song, “Santa Tell Me.”

Ever since viewers caught wind of the tradition, they’ve eagerly awaited the latest installment. For others who are just now catching on, the video’s motivated them to create their own family traditions and happy memories.

“I come from a family of 12 brothers and sisters, there are close to 30 of us cousins…we are inspired by your video and are now plotting something for Christmas Eve,” one commenter wrote. “Thanks for making family look so cool!”

Look so cool? Family is cool!

It’s hard enough coordinating with two or three siblings, never mind eight. So while some disagreements may have broken out during the planning process, “at the end of the day we all do love it,” Ammon said in an interview after last year’s video was released. “We love spending time together and how it all brings us together.”

Watch this happy family’s perfectly synched moves in the video below, and share if you agree this is one family tradition that bears copying!

Shopper Tells Women Talking In Native Tongue To ‘Speak English’ – They Have The Perfect Reply http://movetofun.com/shopper-tells-women-talking-in-native-tongue-to-speak-english-they-have-the-perfect-reply/ http://movetofun.com/shopper-tells-women-talking-in-native-tongue-to-speak-english-they-have-the-perfect-reply/#respond Wed, 31 Jan 2018 11:21:56 +0000 http://movetofun.com/?p=21 Check out this mother and daughter’s reaction to a woman shopping at Walmart on Black Friday telling them to “speak the language.”

While many fixate on English being the official language of the United States, America does not technically have an official language. So, when you go out into public, it is common to hear a combination of different languages. Chances of hearing other languages are even greater when you make the decision to go to Walmart on Black Friday.

According to Jasmine Xiong’s now-viral Facebook post, she and her mother decided to shop at Walmart in Appleton, Wisconsin, on Black Friday. The two spoke in their native language – Hmong – while they had a conversation with each other.

What happened next shocked both Jasmine, her mother, and the nearly 400,000 people who have watched the video on Facebook.

USA Today notes another shopper approached Jasmine and her mother and told them they should “speak the language.” Before they continued to engage in conversation with this woman, one of the women decided to pull out a camera and record the situation.

In the video, you can hear the mother and daughter trying to understand why the woman thinks they need to “speak the language” when they are merely having a conversation with each other. The women did slightly note that while the conversation did not have anything to do with her, they should still speak English because they are in America.

 

The mother and daughter asked the woman if that meant she would speak Hmong if she came over to their house.

The woman said yes, but then she clarified that would only be necessary if she lived at their house. The woman also noted she would take classes and learn another language if she made plans to travel to another country. She proceeded to claim she took Spanish classes with plans to go to Mexico. The mother and daughter challenged the claim by asking her to speak Spanish. The woman responded by counting in Spanish which the mother and daughter brushed off as just about everyone learned how to count to 10 in Spanish. After all, it was more singing than counting.

The unidentified woman acted as if the mother and daughter attacked her for asking them to “speak the language” by asking them several times to stop yelling. Jasmine and her mother explained to the woman that her words were racist and that they had every right to be upset.

“I was really shocked and upset and offended that she would say something like that,” Jasmine told USA Today as she opened up about what happened and how it made her feel.

In 1976, the first 50,000 Hmong people arrived in the United States as refugees from the Laos and Vietnam war.

Wisconsin is home to the third-largest concentration of Hmong people, following California and Minnesota. In total, there are roughly 250,000 people of the Hmong ethnicity currently living in the United States.

Jasmine noted she started the recording near the end of the altercation between her and the other shopper to share the surprising experience with her family and friends. She never thought the video would attract so much attention on social media.

After seeing her video go viral, Jasmine’s biggest regret is not getting more of the altercation on film.

“I’ve never encountered something like that. I never thought I would.”

Unfortunately, USA Today noted this is not the first time that shoppers of another ethnicity were the victims of racist comments, and it likely will not be the last time, either.
