Proof that anything can be turned into a drinking game, one man and his wife analyzed dozens of Hallmark Christmas movies to create a, presumably, peppermint schnapps fueled game.
Last year, Andrew Dyce and his wife watched 45 made-for-TV Hallmark holiday movies and distilled the essence of the movies into what amounts to a trope list.
My wife and I have turned Hallmark's #CountdowntoChristmas into a sport, so here's hoping our "Hallmark Christmas Movie Drinking Game" is as much fun for you! (Print, cut, drink, repeat) pic.twitter.com/nJXrR6oHe6

Over at ScreenRant, they expanded on the text with additional details like:
Working over Christmas!?: One of the film’s leads (or both) forced to work over the holidays.
Possible Santa enters: A large, jolly, white-bearded man enters the plot (ideally named ‘Nick’ or ‘Chris’).
Someone says the title: A character speaks the title. (December Bride watchers beware.)
Perfect tree is found: Tree shopping hits pay dirt in the selection of a ‘perfect’ tree (typically on a lot).
Snowed in (fate. . . ?): Sudden weather means romantic leads must remain in home, cabin, or town.
