Happy Holly Daze!

Do you have a family member who is obsessed with romantic Christmas movies?

Here’s my Holly Daze gift to you… a fun way for the entire family to enjoy a movie marathon of cheesy holiday films.

Play my bingo/drinking game as you watch!

This is a plain Jane* but (hopefully) easy-to-follow set of bingo cards. The cards are named Merry, Happy, Jolly, Joy, and Cheers. Merry is the base card. The other cards are nearly identical, but with one column slightly different so that bingo options will vary by card.

Each column is categorized so that you don’t have to hunt too hard for each item:

  • B is for Baked Goods
  • I is for Ice and Snow
  • N is “Noel” for general holiday-related themes
  • G is for greenery (Christmas-tree related)
  • O is for Os & Xs (hugs & kisses — romance related )

As for the drinking game, you can make up your own rules, but here’s how I intend to play:

  • The first time a bingo square is marked in each row, take the indicated number of sips.
  • The first time a bingo square is marked in each column, take a drink.
  • If you bingo in any direction, finish your drink.
  • Some squares list a drink bonus.

If you’re drinking alcoholic beverages, please use caution. Don’t drive, operate heavy machinery, or attempt to engage in a political discussion with your Uncle Ed. And don’t play blackout bingo or you may actually black out!

As for prizes for the winners? I of course suggest locally-produced treats, or perhaps even a gift certificate to a local eatery. Check my Holly Daze and Foodie Gifts Instagram story highlights for ideas.

That’s it. Download the pdf, print out bingo sheets, and have a holly, jolly Christmas!

*My bingo sheet isn’t cutie-cute with candy cane icons & such (this was a last-minute idea as I prepare to visit my family for the Holly Daze) but hopefully it will do the trick. If you play, tag me on social with #HollyDazeBingo and let me know how it goes.

(If I was the main character in a cheesy holiday movie, “Kris” would be short for Kristmas and you’d get to mark a bingo square for my name!)

P.S. The December Tacoma Aroma Flavorful contest is open through New Year’s Eve. You can enter here and on social with your #PlaidFriday253 adventures.
