Fun Games for Christmas Road Trips

Christmas Road Trips

Going To Grandma & Grandpa’s Is, Even More, Fun Now

When you and your family hit the road this holiday season to visit your loved ones, be prepared with lots of fun games to keep you entertained. Whether the trip is short or long, there are games you can play to help pass the time and raise the holiday cheer. Who knows when you’ll be stuck in holiday traffic and need to keep morale high. Here are a few games that we at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet in Newton, NC recommend.

Holiday I Spy

This is a classic game that never fails to keep everyone engaged. Put a holiday spin on it by only allowing “I Spy” items that are related to the holiday season.

Six Degrees of Separation

You can also put a spin on this classic game by trying to link different actors, singers, or celebrities that have either sung a cover of a Christmas song or starred in a Christmas movie. Remember, you must have fewer than six associations!

Holiday Karaoke

This will be a goofy and possibly embarrassing game, but it will surely make you and your family laugh. Either have some family sing-a-longs to holiday music or, if you’re feeling daring, download the instrumental-only versions of your favorite Christmas tunes and have you and your family take turns providing the vocals.

Popular Easter Traditions

Popular Easter Traditions - colorful painted Easter eggs

Easter is a time when families, communities, and clergy come together to celebrate what’s quickly become a worldwide holiday. While Easter may be celebrated around the world, the stories behind some popular traditions aren’t quite as well known. We here at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet want to share some of the interesting origins behind popular Easter traditions.

Easter Bunny

A person dressed up as a giant bunny doesn’t really scream Easter, does it? The origin of the Easter bunny stretches back to the late 1700s when German settlers made Pennsylvania their home. The settlers would prepare nests for a rabbit named “Oschter Haws” on Easter Eve. Then, they would wait for the bunny to lay eggs.

Easter Eggs

The origin of decorating eggs on Easter has nothing to do with the Easter bunny, oddly enough. In fact, decorating eggs predates the Easter bunny by around 500 years.

Painting eggs red originally symbolized the blood of Jesus Christ and dates back to around the 1200s. Pagan spring rituals used the egg as a symbol of Christ’s resurrection. Families would also give up eggs for Lent.

White House Easter Egg Roll

The Easter egg roll originally took place around the Capitol building, but the eggs made a mess. In 1876, President Grant signed a law banning egg rolling from the Capitol building. Fortunately, President Hayes relocated the egg roll to the White House in 1878, where it currently takes place today.
