For our Christmas film this year, we went a little less festive with the dark holiday comedy "Scrooged." The theme of this event was not caring about Christmas. For our meal, we did Chinese takeout. This worked because it has nothing to do with Christmas, but also because Chinese food is referenced a couple times in the film. Unfortunately, I don't remember what we had for dessert. To set the mood, I created a Spotify playlist that played Christmas music with a creepy mood or pitch. I thought this worked so well with this film and had it playing when guests arrived.
This event went pretty well. The Chinese food worked well to set the mood I was looking for and tied in well to the film.
