A Drinking Game For This Weekend

A Drinking Game For This Weekend

Merry Almost-Holidays-Are-Over!! If you are alone or with friends, perhaps you will not need this drinking game this weekend. If you are with family, you will need this drinking game this weekend. Although it will probably get you drunk enough to go all in on holiday movies or something, which is a topic that provides an endless tunnel of material for me. Why? Because The Santa Clause, at the heart of it all, is a movie about a guy who killed Santa Claus and nobody who worked for the old Santa Claus acts particularly concerned about it. And why does every Christmas movie that proves the existence of Santa Claus start out in the kind of world where kids get presents under the tree every year that are not from their parents, but the parents still doubt he is real? And who in the world takes Christmas as seriously as anyone in the movie Love, Actually? 

But that is no longer the issue. The issue is simply to give your parents some olive oil or books or  gift certificates, put on a sweater that your mother will ask if you ironed, and celebrate the holidays. With the war on Christmas going on, it's all we have left. LOL. I'm sorry. I can't believe grown adults complain about wishing people non-denominational greetings instead of super specific ones. Anyway, whether you're celebrating or a low-ranking soldier in the XMAS WAR, here's a drinking game for you!
