Home Alone has been my favorite Christmas movie since the first time my mom showed it to me when I was a wee tot. The sassy one liners, the clever pranks and the Christmas music just wrapped it all up for me in one big, glittering bow. Some of my close friends are turning 21 this holiday season and I figured what better way to get in the Christmas spirit than a Home Alone drinking game? Grab that egg nog and holiday cheer, and let's get in the spirit. 

#SpoonTip: Spoon University does not support binge drinking or underage drinking. Have fun but please drink responsibly. If you're underage or the designated driver, try out these non-alcoholic drinks instead.

Take a Sip...

1. Every time Kevin complains about something

2. Every time Kevin says a "bad word" (ex. shut up, jerk, etc.)

3. Anytime someone mentions Paris

Take Two Sips...

1. Every time you hear a Christmas song

2. Anytime Kevin's mom freaks out about getting home (bonus points for every time she yells "KEVIN!") 

3. Every time Kevin goes into a family member's room (because who doesn't love jumping on their parents' bed or looking through their older sibling's stuff?)

Finish Your Drink...

1. Whenever you see Old Man Marley

2. Any time Marv and Harry try breaking into the McCallister house

3. During any of Kevin's pranks 

Take a Shot When...

1. The Little Nero's Pizza driver knocks over the statue in the front yard (bonus points for any driver that hits it. Looking at you airport van drivers)

2. Every time Kevin screams (it might be more than you think)

If you want to binge watch all the Home Alone movies, I say all the more power to you. What kid didn't wish they were Kevin McCallister when he went into Mr. Duncan's Toy Emporium? It is still whimsical and fun for kids, and hilarious and filled for nostalgia for everyone else. And, if you so choose, filled with alcohol and a good (safe) time for all.
