So we would gather around the television, watch the awards and eat pizza. Honestly I didn't have a clue what was going on when I was young. It wasn't until I was older that I actually knew what it was all about. But one thing for sure it that it was tradition. Going to the movies has always been important in my life.
We have continued this tradition with our children. Of course they are all grown up now but things haven't changed. We all gather around the big screen TV eating our pizza and love every moment of it. Everyone will have a ballot to fill out and a winner will get some cold hard cash! There have been years when I have bought little Oscar awards to give out but we all appreciate cash these days. If you want a ballot to print out you can get one here.
There has been one change over the years for me. When it came around to award night I was totally prepared. I had seen each movie and every actor that was up except for something like a foreign film that I couldn't find anywhere. See my husband and I use to go to movies at least once a week but many weeks we would go twice! Since he has had an office job for over 3 years now we only go about once a month if we are lucky. (I could go and see them myself but it's so easy to stay home) Movies come out so quickly now that we do still see allot of movie each month. But when it comes to Oscar night I have only seen maybe a few of the movies. The first year was the hardest but now I'm okay with it.
It is still so much fun and hopefully some day we can pass this tradition on to our grandchildren. I love watching movies and that will never change.
