Seven Holiday Drinking Games

Christmas is just around the corner, and that means there is going to be plenty of holiday movies on TV. Of course, when you were little, you could sit in front of the television for hours and never get bored. Now, you're much older, and you juggle a lot more things than worrying about where your favorite blankie or stuffed animal is.

Since there's going to be 25 days of non-stop Christmas movies that you've seen since you were a kid playing over and over, I want to make sure you still love them just as much. Yeah, sure, they're classics, but they can get old pretty fast. Here are a few ways to enjoy some of your old favorite with a new twist:

"Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas" drinking game

Rules: Divide everyone into two teams.

Team 1: The Whos From Whoville

Team 2: The Grinch

Every time the narrator says the name of your team, you drink. Be ready to drink a lot and always have a second drink close by! If someone on the opposing team quits the game before it's over, then that team loses. This is a great way to feel good before your night begins.

"Elf" drinking game

This game guarantees lots of laughs, not only because the movie is hilarious, but because you'll be feeling a little tipsy as well. Nothing goes better with Buddy screaming "SANTA!" than a sip of alcohol.

A drinking game for all your favorite classics

Who knew something as simple as placing a Santa hat on the corner of your television could be so fun?! This game will allow you to enjoy even your least favorite holiday movies and shows.

"Frozen" drinking game

"Let It Go" while watching this new holiday favorite this year!

"A Christmas Story" drinking game

Everyone loves Ralphie, but everyone loves Ralphie more with a drink in their hand. Be careful and make sure you don't shoot your eye out!!

"Christmas Vacation" drinking game

Rules for the game:

Take one drink every time:

Ellen calls Clark "Sparky."

Someone is wearing an ugly holiday sweater.

Clark does something awkward.

There is singing or music.

The swimming pool is referenced.

Clark is wearing a sports team article of clothing unless you are wearing a Chicago Blackhawks jersey; then, you get to give drinks away at each of those parts.

"Home Alone" drinking game

While you're home alone this holiday season, kick back and have a few drinks with Kevin.

Here are seven games that will allow you to drink and be merry this holiday season. Cheers!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
