Top 10 Christmas Movie Drinking Games:

Grinch Drinking Game

The Grinch Whole Stole Christmas Pinterest

I’m so surprised that no one has created the Grinch drinking game rules.  So we took the initiative to make sure all the classic Christmas movies are included in our drinking game series. Grinch Drinking Game Found here.

You could also try the simplest version of all. Split into 2 teams, the Grinch or the Whos. Whenever either word is said, that team drinks. The Grinches drink when the Grinch is said and vice versa.

Watch the Grinch.

Santa Claus Drinking Game

I can’t help but think of Tim the Toolman Tailor when I watch this movie. Classic movie of my childhood for sure. Get the full Santa Claus Drinking Game rules.

My favorite rule of this movie Christmas drinking game, is drink when a sexual innuendo is made. HAH! Now that I watch this back as an adult, it’s hilarious to know this was my childhood favorite movie. And years later, I’m drinking to the sexual innuendos.

Watch the Santa Claus.

Elf Movie Drinking Games

Another classic movie. These rules get fun with sips and shots. After all the times you might sip to “pizza” you might want to get one of those prepared for the movie too.

Watch Home Alone.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation Movie Drinking Game

Another classic Christmas movie. I think the best part of Christmas movies is watching the same classics, over and over again, year after year. Sure I do love the new Christmas movies, but I normally only watch one or two in a season.

National Lampoons Christmas Vacation takes us back to the days and origin of stupid humor infused with Christmas cheer. I like these Christmas movie drinking game rules because there are only 6 of them. Keep it simple. With the movies that have a bunch of rules, I start to forget the rules half way through. Haha.

Watch National Lampoons Christmas Story.

Love Actually Drinking Game

This is the newest movie in our Christmas movie drinking game list. A story about 4 different couples, but it’s incredibly cliché. For example, one of these rules, is take a drink when someone cries. In any typical love story, that is bound to happen atleast a couple times. With the story of 4 couples, it’s a drinkfest.

Watch Love Actually.

Jingle All the Way Drinking Game

This is the newest movie in our Christmas movie drinking game list. A story about 4 different couples, but it’s incredibly cliché. For example, one of these rules, is take a drink when someone cries. In any typical love story, that is bound to happen atleast a couple times. With the story of 4 couples, it’s a drinkfest.

Take a drink every time:

  • Arnie (Howard) says “Jamie”
  • Arnie talks to himself
  • Someone should’ve died in real life
  • Arnie makes a stupid face
  • Someone says “Turbo Man”
  • Ted hits on the Mom
  • You see a Santa hat

Watch Jingle All the Way.

Frozen Drinking Game

Another favorite past time is watching kids movies, even without the kids. And who says you can’t turn kids Christmas movies into a drinking game?

Watch Frozen.

If you don’t recognize the name of this one, it’s because these rules is a one size fits all kind of movie drinking game. This one is a Lifetime channel special. Turn the Lifetime channel on and these rules should get you a sufficient drinking game for any Christmas movie that is currently playing.

Without fail.

That’s hilarious and a little predictable at the same time. But hey, why not drink to the cliche. While I gathered a couple of the highlights, I have to admit, I’ve already seen them all. Rent my favorite, Holiday Spin, on Amazon.
