HAWN AND RUSSELL'S FIRST MEETING

Hawn met Russell for the first time when she was 21, and he was 16. At the time, she thought he was too young for her. Despite the sparks between them, she was worried about the five-year gap.

When they were cast together on the 1968 film, "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band," Hawn had to stop herself from pursuing Russell.

Years later, they met again on the set of the 1983 film "Swing Shift," and she remembered how much she liked him the first time they met. Finally, they allowed their romance to blossom.

THEIR FIRST DATE

For the "Swing Shift" movie, Russell was cast as a musician that would charm Hawn's character. They hatched a plan to go out dancing to prepare for their roles.

Hawn suggested they go to a place that would have the kind of swing music that would be in the movie. So, they went to the Playboy Club, which was the only place that had what they wanted.

They were having such a great time that they decided that the night wasn't over yet. They ended up inside the home Hawn had purchased to renovate to continue their time together.

They had to break into the place to get in, and while they were making out, the police walked in on them. Russell said,

"The whole situation was bizarre and weird."

They eventually took their date somewhere else, and whenever they think of their first date, they remember that it was a lot of fun.

HAWN AND RUSSELL'S CHRISTMAS MEMORIES

Just like every other family, for Hawn and Russell, Christmas is the time of the year where they carry out family traditions. Once, they took their then-5-year-old son, Wyatt, to see Santa at the Glenwood Springs Mall in Colorado.

Unfortunately, Santa had left his seat, and they were not ready to disappoint their son. Russell had to get in the back, put on Santa's clothes, and he was a very convincing Santa.

As their family grew bigger, they still spent the holiday season together. They would trim the tree on Chrismas eve before having a big meal.

After dinner, their grandkids would put on their pajamas and hang up their stockings. They would get the fire going, and when it's dark, they always chose someone to read "Twas the Night Before Christmas."
