5 Holiday Winter Drinking Games That Guarantee Obliteration

Giving the game “Iced” a whole new meaning.

5 Holiday Winter Drinking Games That Guarantee Obliteration
Hear Stapps

As the snow falls and the slush gathers it often results in more hot chocolate and movie nights than crazy nights downtown. While the prior nights are enjoyable, sometimes you need a little motivation to kick-start your evening festivities. So the best solution? Drinking games. Ones that are just plain cold-hearted.

Please note, some of these rules are open to consumption alterations and variations. Also, drink responsibly. You can define “responsibly” as you wish.

1. Slip Sip

To begin with, we will start small. So walking is hard, especially when the ground is covered with a sleek layer of shiny ice. But you know what makes you walk with even more caution? Alcohol. So every time you or one of your friends accidentally slips on the ice, you take a sip of your drink.

2. Iced

And if you want to step up #1, if someone actually falls on the ice, you each take a gulp of your drink for their misfortune. While the person who actually fell must remain seated until they chug the entirety of a Smirnoff Ice.

3. Frosty the Snowman Gets Tipsy

This game requires a frosted mug of beer and a music player of some sort. If you know the rules of “Thunder” this game follows the same concept except now you are corrupting a classic childhood song, “Frosty the Snowman”. So everyone must stand in a circle with their frosted mug of beer (no other beverages allowed, sorry I do make the rules) and play the song on the speaker. When the lyrics say, “Frosty the Snowman” the first person must start chugging their frosted beer and can only stop chugging when the song once again declares the phrase, “Frosty the Snowman”, which signals the next person in the circle to begin chugging. To gain the full effect I would suggest playing the song on repeat for two or three times so that all may experience the holiday joy.

4. No pants? SHOT!

This one is simple… and effective. Essentially whenever you see someone wearing shorts or a dress (for some absurd reason) in the middle of winter, you yell "shot!" which is logically followed by a shot. The point is to build up your “beer blanket” to share with those who do not deem long pants necessary in below freezing temperatures. Now I understand not everyone carries a flask in their back pocket, so they can be tallied up throughout the day and compensated that night.

5. Christmas Caroling Cheers

First off, if you are not pregaming to Christmas songs for the whole month of December, you are doing something fundamentally wrong. Second, the real reason to rage to Christmas carols is to consume, obviously. So this game is one to play during the entire time of your social gathering because it demands random cheers of voices and beverages. To begin, your group must pick three to five (or how many you desire) keywords that are common in Christmas songs, for example: Christmas, snow, Santa, sleigh, Christmas tree, chimney, etc. And while the music plays in the background if someone hears one of the chosen words they must shout, “Cheers!” which is reasonably followed by an explosion of glasses clinking and throats gulping.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
