Bar Bro: Home for the holidays drinking game

There’s no place like home for the holidays, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t places we’d all rather be. If Thanksgiving break taught us anything, it’s that we don’t really want to spend any more time with these people than is absolutely necessary. After you’re tired of running into kids from your high school at the local bar, gather a few people you can stand, pop in a holiday movie, crack open your favorite seasonal adult beverage and play the Bar Bro’s Holiday Drinking Game.

  • Drink whenever a Christmas carol is playing.
  • Drink if you see a Christmas tree or someone unwrapping a present.
  • Drink any time it’s snowing on-screen.
  • Drink whenever someone is wearing a holiday sweater.
  • Drink for any sighting of Santa Claus.
  • Drink if anyone says “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah.”
  • If you’re watching the movie on TV, drink for any holiday-related advertisement.
  • Drink if the movie’s in clay-mation. It will start to make more sense.
  • Drink for any mistletoe sighting. Kiss someone if it’s appropriate.
  • If you’re watching a movie with a huge ensemble cast – “Love Actually,” “New Year’s Eve,” etc. – drink any time the movie switches storylines.
  • If you’re a guy, and your girlfriend roped you into watching one of those movies, pour some out for your fellow fallen brethren. Then take a drink.
  • Take two drinks if someone in the movie celebrates both Christmas and Hanukkah.
  • Drink again if you’re watching the Rugrats holiday special.
  • Finish your drink if someone finds love in the midst of the holiday season.
  • Finish your drink if a child discovers the true meaning of Christmas.
  • Finish everything in the house if that actually involves anything religious (don’t worry, you’re safe on this one).
