Ready to kick up your Holiday Movie Viewing up a notch? Try playing Holiday Movie Bingo! Whether you are addicted to the Hallmark Channel's Countdown to Christmas, watching on ION, or binging the latest offerings from Netflix, this set of Bingo Cards will add some spice to your viewing party.
Ok, I will admit it. I am a sucker for Hallmark Christmas Movies. It all started a few years ago when I began "ironically" watching them over the holiday. As much as I tried to look away and not watch, I found myself drawn to their predictable formula of holiday cheer and romance. There is something reassuring about the idea that over the course of 2 hours that you will go from a city scene with a main character who works far too hard and is too busy for Christmas to an idyllic small town setting where the local hottie will help the main character discover the true meaning of the holiday and together they will find true love. All of this while managing to have their first kiss in the last scene. From this point forward to be known as #FKLS or "FirstKissLastScene
In the formula you can be assured that you will encounter a whole host of holiday themed tropes. In almost every movie there will be a baking scene with a flour fight, a character or small town with a Christmas themed name, a snowball fight, a musical montage, or the main character dressed in green or red. Don't overlook all of the former child stars as main characters! From Danica McKeller A.K.A Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years to Candace Cameron Bure A.K.A. D.J. Tanner from Full House. Oh, don't forget Lacy Chabert from Party of Five. Let's just say, I am glad that they are all still working.
Realizing just how often the same things occurred, my wife and I started calling them out as they appeared. Last year, I came across a set of Bingo cards online, and let's just say that they significantly enhanced the viewing experience. This year, I decided to create my own set of Christmas Movie Bingo cards and share them with you.
Here is the initial set of 8 unique cards. To create them, I complied a list of over 100 different commonly occurring items or events from the hours of research that I have done over the years. I will just leave this right here for you and your friends and family to enjoy. I would love to hear about your Christmas Movie Bingo experience. Please share which card and movie you got Bingo with. Also, remember this works not only with the Hallmark Christmas Movies, but try it with ION and the Netflix Original Christmas Movies.
