“We’ve been married 13 years, and we’ve never sent out a Christmas card or anything like that, and I don’t know why, but we thought it would be fun to start a new tradition,” Micah Slade said in an interview with the Deseret News. “So we did the swimming pool one, and we figured we’d send it out to family and friends … and I don’t know what happened, but it just kind of blew up. People started watching it and sending it everywhere, it went viral a little bit.”
Christmas greetings from the Slade family of Gilbert, Ariz., do not come in an envelope. For the past three years, the family has sent out Christmas videos on YouTube, showing that they’re not afraid to get a little messy or creative.
