Surprise White Christmas Creates Unique Shared Experience

Last Christmas, my wife and I decided to travel up north to Montreal and Vermont so that our two kids could have a true “White Christmas” experience, and we had an absolute blast. It was a fantastic experience. We live here in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, so we only get snow about every four or five years and usually just for a day or so. So the odds of getting a White Christmas here is very low.

I’m sure that we’ve had one before, but I can’t for the life of me actually remember one here at home.

We decided to have the whole family come here for Christmas this year, so we thought that we’d entertain everyone by doing traditional Christmas activities like sun-tanning and swimming in the pool. However, early Christmas Eve, we started to get a few flakes of snow and by early afternoon, we had about a half inch of real snow.

The snow, an unexpected surprise, created a unique shared experience for my whole family, and the pictures and memories of the last week will be something that we recall for many Christmases to come.

One of the things that makes our Team Building programs at The Leader’s Institute® so effective is that each of them create that same type of shared experience. For instance, when participants finish a Build-A-Bike® program and local kids come rushing into the room to collect their very first brand-new bike, that memory and the pictures of the smiling kids create a fantastic shared experience.

On your next family get-together or next company meeting, create some type of unexpected shared experience, and the memories created will be a conversation topic for many events to come.
