Love (Actually) is the most dangerous game — especially when you're drinking through it

Love Actually has become a modern Christmas classic, and I know I personally will probably end up seeing it, like, a bazillion times between now and Christmas (and OK, I may have already watched it once or twice... this week).

Whether you're throwing a Love Actually viewing party or just cozying up with some 'nog and brandy to watch it yourself, well, the drinking game below is for you. The game is pretty straightforward but can be kind of risky if you're drinking martinis all night. I'd stick to wine, beer or weak mixed drinks for this one, unless you like to live (really, really) dangerously.

Keep a glass of water and a box of tissues on hand, and may the best Love Actually fan win (though come to think of it, with a game like this, everyone's a winner!).

Just remember, there's no shame in switching to water halfway through. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, you can try a delicious holiday mocktail.
