‘Tis the season for fa la la-ing and merriment. The holidays can be a time full of spending time with the people you love. And they can also be incredibly lonely too. As a single mom of three kids, the holidays are just a reminder of how I’m alone… It’s not always easy going to all the holiday parties as a single person seeing all the other happy couples together. And it’s also super hard to remember that some day I’ll be one of those happy couples again. So while I’m over here all single, this holiday season I’m printing off some Hallmark Christmas movie bingo cards to play along while watching those Hallmark movies (and maybe even having some girlfriends over to play along too).
You’d think being a single person I wouldn’t want to watch these lovey dovey movies. And sometimes it is really hard to watch them. It’s not fair that every single one of these girls gets the “perfect” guy after 120 minutes… but maybe if I traveled for the holidays and spent a month somewhere different, I’d find my passion and love of my life. I kid…kind of.
There’s also something comforting about watching all of the movies. Being reminded there is a happily ever after. And to get off the couch and out of the house. And to know someone will love me and my kids and my crazy.
I also have Hallmark Christmas movies playing almost constantly in my house. Because I don’t really need to pay attention (I mean come on – you don’t know what’s going to happen?), they’re perfect to have on in the background while I’m working so there’s some noise. I just have to be careful that I don’t get sucked in to watching them and actually get some work done.
So if you love to watch Hallmark Christmas movies too, print off these Hallmark Christmas movie bingo cards (there are four different ones!) and spend a day on the couch watching. Or better yet, invite some girlfriends over to watch with you. Order these cute shirts or socks, make some Chex Mix or no bake treats, and spend a day on the couch laughing and reconnecting or wrapping gifts.
What’s your favorite Hallmark Christmas movie to watch?
