Many families have traditions during the holidays. This is no exception for one family in Utah. 

The eight siblings of the Orgill family in Highland, Utah have choreographed a dance for Christmas since 2012. 

The tradition started off as a surprise for their parents, according to ABC News. The dance was to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You.”

This year’s dance was to Ariana Grande’s “Santa Tell Me.” 

“It definitely takes a lot more time now,” said Ammon Orgill to ABC News. “We’re always trying to top it every year and make it more elaborate. This year my sister and I did the choreography. We started the Friday after Thanksgiving and practiced all day Saturday and filmed it on Sunday.”

A few in-laws and one niece have joined in with the tradition. The siblings hope to pass down the tradition one day. 

The siblings remember to wear festive outfits during their dances. 

“They’re all our mom’s sweaters,” Orgill said. “She loves these sweaters, and she’d pull one out every Christmas. She’s got like 10 of them.”
