Bring The Family Together This Holiday With The Iternal App

We are, unbelievably, at that time of year again. It’s Christmas! Well not quite yet, but the festive feeling is in full swing as trees go up, decorations are hung and lights illuminate the houses and streets of the western world. 

As the year draws to a close, we get the chance to look back on all that’s happened and look forward to the future with our family (and friends) by our sides. In other words, there’s never been a more perfect time to get that family timeline up and running than this Christmas.

In truth, it will be the first Christmas in almost two years that many of us will be reunited with our extended families – parents; grandparents; children; uncles; aunties; cousins –  to spend a day or two in celebration of each other. Such an occasion should be made the most of, and if you can capture a bit of that Christmas magic forever on a timeline, even better! 

Iternal Is For Family

From its very beginning, Iternal has been all about saving the moments that matter most to you, and sharing them with the people that matter most.

Being familiar with the defining stories and experiences of your family members not only increases your bond and connection with one another but also gives you a greater sense of self-identity and self-esteem. 

This is why we’ve made it incredibly easy to share those all-important moments, directly from the Iternal app. 

All you have to do is tap the ‘Share’ section of your navigation bar located at the bottom of your screen, choose the memory you want to share and click ‘Share’. 

From here you’ll be able to select the service you’d like to use to share your memories and who receives it; it’s that simple.


Questions You Could Ask Everyone This Christmas

Not only do we understand the importance of family, but we know first-hand what it’s like not to have asked the questions while we had the chance; to go on knowing opportunities were missed to save those voices, and learn from the stories of those who are no longer with us. 

That’s why we encourage all of our users to make the most of Christmas this year and start collecting those stories! To give you some inspiration, we’ve got a few questions you could ask nearly anyone in your family that will think will get the makings of a lovely family timeline (after the presents have been opened, of course):

  • What bit of advice would you leave for our future relatives?

  • What do you look forward to the most at Christmas?

  • What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever received?
  • What’s the funniest family event you’ve ever been part of?
  • What song takes you back to your adolescence?

  • What are you most proud of this family of?

  • What’s the most unique family tradition we have?
  • Can you tell the story of how you met/fell in love with [insert respective partner here]?

See Where The Answers Take You...

While we think those are some good starting points, don’t hold yourself back. If you can think of a question you think will get a great, detailed answer that really paints a picture of who your family member is, go for it! Remember, you can download the Iternal app for Android absolutely free following this link, and you can still access the webpage here too. We hope you get some great stories for your timeline!
