Christmas is upon us! I'm sure everyone has their traditions in place and, despite being one of the Chosen, I'm no exception on this most sparkly of holidays. However, if you're looking to add something new and exciting to the Christmas mix, consider the "Home Alone" drinking game.
Few movies come close to this gem of a film. Its slapstick fun and perfectly timed musical score never fail to cheer me (slapstick comedy, as Wikipedia informs us, is a type of "broad, physical comedy involving boisterous actions, farce, violence, and activities which may exceed the boundaries of common sense"... perhaps this would explain why the comedic device is no longer employed... Hollywood must fear that a particular generation of parents might fail to explain to their children that, in real life, setting fire to someone's head or launching paint cans from the stairs may result in target's death).
But I digress...
If you're like me and not much of a drinker, just be sure to kick back with a "lovely cheese pizza", cola (Pepsi is the soda of choice for the McCallister family, but I prefer Coke), and maybe even a heaping bowl of ice cream to be consumed during the appropriate scenes.

that which describes a unique individual, generally of a silly, bouncy, whimsical, and childish nature; someone given to watching Disney movies on repeat (or other fun film customarily geared towards children, including, but not limited to: Home Alone, The Sword in the Stone, Casper, Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium).
Slang. Fun; hobbit-like.
