'Tis the season for all things holiday (and if you know me, you know I love a good holiday post!) Let’s have a little fun this year and play some Holiday Move Bingo!
Here’s how it goes:
- Click here to download your bingo cards. You’ll have to scroll to the bottom of the page and hit submit. As of right now, I’ve got everything that I can think of in there but I know there are a lot more great squares that we can have. I think it’s important to be very clear that I am aware that this is heavily weighted right now on Christmas because that’s what I celebrate (with a little Hannukah thrown in). I’m counting on all of you to make this much more inclusive and a place that we can celebrate and share together.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to add more squares. Holiday’s are not limited to December–you can play this game with whatever is an important holiday to you. This is meant to be a warm and welcoming place (ooo–I just went back and added fireplace) where we can share what’s important to us, our families, and our cultures. I have a feeling that this is a pretty interesting group and I would love to learn about what you celebrate. I like to imagine that we are virtually inviting each other to our homes to celebrate a holiday–whatever one it may be–together.
- What are the rules, you ask? Well, the rules are pretty fast and loose.
You pick your holiday
You decide what you consider a holiday movie
The MDK square in the middle of the card is always a free square
We are following the honor system. I trust you.
- How do I play?
Watch holiday movies
Mark up your bingo cards
When you get bingo, post Bingo in the comments along with the name of your favorite holiday movie/tradition/food/song/etc. Tell us something about yourself when you get Bingo
- Will there be anything else going on in this topic?
Sure, as long as it is holiday related, go for it. Share a recipe, a song, a video, the best gift you’ve ever given. This is a place for us to actually practice what we preach and joyfully share our different lifestyles, cultures, and traditions.
- Will there be prizes?
You betcha there will be prizes. My lovely friends at The Body Shop are doing a lot of hard work now to create a more inclusive workplace. I’ve invited them to our bingo hall so that they can take a breath and enjoy some of the benefits of all the hard work that we’ve all done this year. There will be smaller weekly prizes and a grand prize at the end.
- How will I choose the winners?
I will not choose the winner. A random number generator will choose the winner. Every Sunday between now and the end of December, I’ll count up how many people got bingo, put it in the generator and that’s how we’ll get a winner.
On December 31, I’ll count up how many posts we have on the topic and all of them will be entered to win the grand prize. The more you participate, the more chances you have to win. All will be included, whether or not you got bingo.
I’m sure I’ve left some things out so I’ll update as we go along. Any questions right off the bat, post them in the comments.
Let the Holiday Movie Bingo begin!!
