I’m a BIG Hallmark Channel fan, especially when they start playing their Christmas movies.
I started watching (almost obsessively) the channel after my family had gotten into a car accident (we were all unharmed just REALLY shaken!).
It sent me into a crazy bout of insomnia and high anxiety. I would stay up all night and worry about preparing my family for emergencies and anything else that I couldn’t control.
Hallmark Channel was my place to find respite from that noise. It was soothing and helped me to find peace during the day. And when holiday movie season started, it was like the channel was always there to give me a warm hug.
My insomnia is now gone but I still live for the Christmas movies. And in 2020, I can’t think of anyone who couldn’t use a mental break.
Watch one or two of these movies and you quickly understand that they are super predictable. But that’s half the fun. The drama is low, the holiday cheer is high and sometimes that is just what we all need.
With a new movie that debuts each Saturday and Sunday night (if you include the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel), there are tons of opportunities to play this drinking game.
Don’t even get me started on their Thanksgiving bonanza where you get 5 new movies in a row!
While you don’t often see anyone enjoying an alcoholic beverage in a movie, you absolutely should be sipping something tasty while watching.
And as we head further into the busiest of seasons, I wanted to find a way to remind moms to take time for themselves. You KNOW I am a huge “me time” encourager.
Last year, my friend Nicole and I bonded over our love of the Hallmark Holiday movies. And I knew we weren’t the only moms who find joy in the cheesiness.
And my idea for a Hallmark Christmas drinking game was born. You can play it alone, with friends or even virtually with friends.
I don’t intend for anyone to get blackout drunk from this. The intention is just to put a smile on your face and let you know you aren’t alone in your love for the holiday greatness that is Hallmark movies.
(But here’s my favorite anti-hangover supplement just in case…)
My mother in law picked up this Hallmark wine for me and I am so excited to try them! Of course, they are the perfect thing to pair with your drinking game.
You can find it at World Market, Total Wine, and also at HallmarkWines.com. It’s about $15 a bottle and would make a great gift especially when paired with my Holiday Movie Watching kit and a printout of this drinking game!
Or you can make one of these delicious holiday cocktail ideas:
- A Holiday Mule is easy to make with a store-bought flavored cider.
- This Spiced Cranberry Juice is great for using in holiday cocktails or mocktails.
- Fireball and Ginger Ale is a super easy cocktail to sip when curled up on the couch.
- Spiced Rum makes this Winter Daiquiri SO tasty. A little bit of vanilla makes it just right for watching holiday movies.
These movies are G rated so they are fine to have on with the kids around.
I will never not love these movies.
And coming up with the Hallmark Holiday Movie Drinking Game was so fun.
There is no way I could possibly cover all the things that happen in these movies. I kept it mainly to the larger plot points meaning it’s a fairly boring drinking game.
You could absolutely come up with more things to watch for to make it so you drink more often. But in my opinion, hangovers with kids are the worst!
Play This Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game
It is my dream to be in one of these movies (although I’m doing absolutely nothing about that.) I don’t need a staring role.
Any role Nelson Wong plays would work. I’m sure you would recognize him if you saw him. He is my favorite part of Hallmark movies. He’s been a barista, a hair and makeup guy, a vintage ornament collector and SO many more things!
Print this out and play with your friends!
Don’t want to host in person? Choose a movie to watch together, but apart, and chat via Zoom or Facetime. Or skip the movie and just do a virtual wine tasting for all of December.
Just make sure you find ways to take a little time for yourself this hectic holiday season!
