Our evening began with an Italian dinner catered from a local restaurant.Dinner was followed by the “show” and a couple shared a devotional to end the evening. The “show” can stand on its own as your program for the event.Many entertainment options are designed to get ship-goers an opportunity to participate in the fun. How many windows will your spouse say are in the largest room of your home? What home improvement project needs to be done next at your house? You can find more fun activities like the “Not-so-Newlywed” game in the “Home for the Holidays” reunion theme package.As we plan our “Crusin” family reunion we looked for opportunities to get family members involved and decided a “Not-So-Newlywed” game would fit the bill. Choose a variety of couples such as the longest married couple; the most recently married, a favorite of the family, and a couple that you just know will have funny answers. What was the last movie you and your spouse last saw together? When did your husband say he actually realized for the first time that he was seriously in love with you? What is your husband’s favorite snack before going to bed? What movie star will your husband say he is most like: Sean Connery, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise or John Wayne? “Home for the Holidays” is one of our favorite family reunion themes.It is best to limit the game to four couples though you may use more if you need to. When you have answers for all of these questions, invite the men back in to sit by their husbands and ask them the same questions you asked the women. It is especially appropriate if you have a family member such as a serviceman or missionary that has been away from the family for awhile.The disadvantage is that the more couples the longer the game so think about you audience and how long the game will keep their interest. We celebrated every holiday we could think of during the three-day family reunion.I’ve revised the script we created for our church a few years ago.
