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.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
