Over the holidays, interview your parents or grandparents!
One thing that I would recommend this holiday season whether you are able to see your parents or grandparents in person is to do a recorded interview with them. Why? There are several reasons why this would be of benefit:
You can do this recording over Zoom and by yourself, or if you have children, you can include them as well so they can each have a part to “ask Grandma” or “ask Grandpa” certain questions.
Some questions you may want to ask:
When and where were you born?
What was your childhood like?
How many siblings did you have?
What was your favorite subject in school?
What was your first job and what was that like?
What was the first trip that you took and what do you remember about it?
How did you meet grandma/grandpa? Tell me about your engagement?
What was one of your proudest accomplishments in life?
If you could’ve lived in a different city or done anything differently in life, would you have? What would you have done?
What would you like to be remembered for?
What are things that make you happy?
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
Don’t forget to hit record! Also once you have the recording, keep it safe in Dropbox or similar.
