‘Tis the season, and all that.
It seems like a running theme for our annual “Christmas Spirits”drinking season, a sequel to a holiday classic that many weren’t asking for. We’ve covered Home Alone 5 (yes,there’s a 3 and 4) and A Christmas Story 2 (which also isn’t the 2nd one), and this year continues that tradition as we get a “Jingle All The Way” sequel, nearly 20 years in the making.
Not only is it a sequel to a somewhat dubious movie as it is, but it is starring Larry The Cable Guy and comes from WWE Studios so you can expect super-quality!
Anyhow enough with the words, we’re here to drink! Time to go to the rule book!
- TurboMan Redux – Whenever the “prized” toy is mentioned or shown, take a drink. (Apparently, it is the Harrison Bear)
- Rich or Poor – For any reference/allusion to the wealth gap between characters in the movie, take a drink.
- The Santa Clause! – Yes, named after a Tim Allen movie, anytime the name Santa is uttered take a drink. Take 2 drinks every time a parent tries to convince their child that its not the real Santa. Take 3 drinks if it actually turns out to be the real Santa.
- The Christmas Tune – whenever a Christmas song plays take a drink. But only when it plays if it continues for 3-4 minutes you don’t have to drink the entire time, we don’t want people getting sick on our watch.
- Jolly – No you say Merry. And if someone is mean enough to say Jolly, and they aren’t a fat dude in a red suit, you are taking a drink!
- The Christmas Setup – If Christmas is used as the back drop for an non-traditional scene such as a fight or a chase scene that involves like a Christmas tree or ornaments in some fashion take a drink. This goes double if said scene also includes Christmas music playing in the background.
- The Christmas Pun – You know it will happen, nothing gets a chuckle better than a silly Christmas joke or some type of misunderstanding about the mistletoe. Their blunder is your thunder, take a drink!
As always, we will put these rules to the test when we can and make any necessary amendments to make sure you have the BEST possible time while watching the movie.
