After many people celebrated the day with family, some chose to head to the local movie theatre to catch a new film.
Christmas evening, parking lots at Movies 6 and Movies 14 in Mishawaka were packed.
Some tell us the holiday off is a perfect time to head to the movies with family.
It is a tradition the Vaughn family started a few years back.
Walker Vaughn said, “We started this tradition about three years ago. We have Christmas Eve dinner and then we get up Christmas morning and we go to the movies in the afternoon. And this year, we invited some of our friends from church to come with us, and we just made it an afternoon.”
Jean Anne Vaughn added, “We don't get to go to the movies a lot, because there's not a lot of time, so it's just a fun way to go to the movies.”
The Vaughn’s say they usually pick a good family film to watch together and then enjoy talking about it on the way home.
