A bottle of wine and Hallmark’s “Countdown to Christmas” go together like Candace Cameron Bure and, well, any dreamy Hallmark actor (Hallmark superfans know it’s true.). Now that the all-new Christmas movies are in full-swing on Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, you have two priorities from now until Christmas: 1. claiming the coziest spot on the couch (Hallmark-themed blankets and fuzzy socks included.) and 2. keeping your wine and egg nog stash fully stocked through December.
Since you’re already spending your weekends sipping on mulled wine, egg nog, hot cocoa, or another seasonal spirit with your movie-watching pals, you might as well add even more festive cheer with this Hallmark Christmas movie drinking game.
Hallmark is known for leaning into all the holiday clichés (in the best way, of course), so we teamed up Bran, Panda, and Dan from Deck the Hallmark (FYI, This hilarious trio gives a play-by-play of every single Hallmark Christmas movie on their podcast, available on iTunes and Spotify. They’re even taking it on the road this winter for the All the Christmas Feels Tour.) to create a drinking game that celebrates all the Hallmark magic that we’re guaranteed to see in this year’s 40 new releases. Each prompt, while hilarious, is really just another excuse to celebrate all the magic that Hallmark Christmas movies offer: carols, Christmas cookies, and snow-covered kisses.
So, you know what to do: Tune your TV to Hallmark Channel or Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, grab your drink of choice (alcoholic or otherwise), and bring on the laughs.
