Yep, all related by blood, marriage and in one case by divorce!

In all seriousness (and we can all learn from this) the key to getting everyone to agree was to get everyone to have ownership of the project.
For a start, the initial idea came from one of my sisters so it wasn't boring old Uncle Tim doing another of his videos.
Then we bounced around ideas as to which song to use via emails with different parts of the family.
Once decided, I broke the song down into little sections and asked people to come up with ideas (eg "What can we film to illustrate 'Does a ton-up on his sleigh'?")
We only had one person who really didn't want to do it, but even she was prepared to be the "hand" that puts on the CD at the beginning. And then she had a few drinks at the big family get together and joined in the choruses anyway!
