Love it or hate it, it's almost time for A Christmas Story to be on a constant loop for 24 hours straight.

It's a staple, really. While the classic flick may cause some to grumble that it's annoying, it really just isn't Christmas without A Christmas Story. Over the past decade or so, the movie has become as traditional as Christmas trees, Santa, snowballs and fruitcake. It's hard not to feel some sentimental attachment to the film, mostly because it's so darn relatable. Who hasn't desperately yearned for a Christmas present they know they probably won't get, been tormented by relentless bullies, or dared their best friend to do something incredibly stupid like putting their tongue on a frozen pole?

This drinking game is perfect for all the Christmas Story experts out there and will help those who aren't fans slip calmly into an enjoyable buzz so that it won't matter what movie is on. You can play it with beer, wine, or your drink of choice, but beware... after the first time the movie plays, you and your family might be howling like a pack of Bumpus hounds!
