That’s just what one family did and, of course, they put it on their YouTube Channel.

What better song to do a Christmas dance to than “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”, covered by Justin Bieber?

The video starts off with half of the family members standing with their arms half outstretched, pointing downwards, along with their heads. The other half of the family facing the camera is on their knees and also looking down.

When the song starts, everyone is in sync right away, moving their arms to the music along with their heads.

The five family members in the front row then fall backward. Don’t worry the family members in the back catch them. That probably took a lot of practice, but they got it down!

You can tell they’re really getting into it as they all start raising their hands to the music.

Then, half of the family takes a break while the other half keeps on dancing.

This family really takes these lyrics literally.

In the part where Bieber sings, “He sees you when you’re sleeping”, the family lies down and pretends to sleep.

When he sings “he knows when you’re awake”, they all get up. Talk about synchronization!

They keep on dancing and then form a straight line where they move to the sides in sync with their arms.

Then it’s time for the girls to show off their moves as the boys go off-camera.

Then it’s the boys’ turn as two come into the shot and a third rolls over their backs. Talk about timing!

There’s more dancing as the song goes on.

The family is getting ready for the big move…the pyramid!

Four family members get on all fours to provide the base. Then three climb on the top, two follow on the next level.

Finally, the youngest one completes the pyramid by climbing on top.

Once they topple down off the pyramid, there’s some freestyle dancing.

For the finale, they welcome their grandparents into the shot.

They might not be in sync with the moves, but they sure are having fun!

Talk about a family affair!

Whether you have 8 kids in the family or just a couple, making dance videos like this one is a fun way to get the family involved and spend some quality time together. Plus, you have a memory you can watch years later. If you look at the message on the back wall it reads, “Families are Forever”. With videos like this, you’ll have memories that will last forever too.

What are you waiting for? Isn’t it time to make a video?
