BYUtv: How long has your family played music together around Christmas time?
Kimberly: Well, I guess our family would have started making Christmas music together when we started making music in general together. I was about 15 years old, Neil was 8, Reid was 10.
One of our very favorite Christmas traditions are to pick some of our very favorite Christmas songs, typically for us it's Carol of the Bells.
Kimberly: And to gather around the piano, and just sort of either just play it musically or even sing it. It's one of our favorite things to do every year.
Neil: I remember one of the first memories of doing like Christmas songs was we were actually given a karaoke machine, years and years ago. And uh, it was the one where you had to actually-- it was tapes, not CD's, it was tapes. And that was probably one of the first times we actually sang on a mic together.
Kimberly: It's a good mid-nineties memory, right there.
BYUtv: What is your favorite Perry family Christmas memory?
Kimberly: We've made a lot of favorite memories as a family over the years.
I think one of my favorite memories happens to be also one of our favorite traditions. Every year we do a Christmas baking competition. I particularly like it because I win most of the competitions.
Reid: Yeah, and we get to eat a bunch so.
Kimberly: It's really fun, we love it. It happens every year, and we sort of judge each other's cooking skills.
Reid: Very harshly.
BYUtv: What do you hope viewers take away from this concert?
Kimberly: I hope viewers take away a feeling. Everything that we're doing, both with our own music right now and the way we wanted to build the show was to really carry everybody through a series of feelings.
Sometimes it feels like a holy moment, sometimes it's a really fun moment. So, I hope that they will come on that journey with us throughout the show.
