Horoscopes: Each sign as a holiday Hallmark movie trope

Ms. Constellation Prize

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

That moment when one of the main characters sees it for the first time: “Oh my gosh, that’s real snow!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

The protagonist sheepishly points out the mistletoe hanging above them to their love interest. They hesitate and almost kiss, but an awkward uncle interrupts them before they get to share a festive lip lock.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

The ex-love interest crashes the family’s holiday dinner right before the main characters were going to introduce themselves as a couple! 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Any character (bonus points if it’s the dorky dad) wearing an ugly festive sweater or tie        in the final scene of the movie.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

One of the random side characters — hometown shop owner or local barista, etc — says the title of the movie in the movie.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

The main characters go Christmas tree shopping together, get separated and find one another again, conveniently next to the perfect tree (of course, snow begins to fall at this very moment).

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The younger brother of the family starts an obligatory snowball fight, and one of the main characters gets hit a little too hard in the face and starts crying (which the love interest helps wipe away).

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Dad makes a toast at dinner where he welcomes the main character to the family, rambling about the family’s totally out-of-left-field holiday traditions, like their famous family Rage Cage match.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

A gaggle of carolers come to the door with snow falling behind them. They’re singing the main couple’s favorite holiday song.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

The workaholic family member plans to go to work on Christmas day, but then makes a surprise appearance at the end, saving the day.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

The main character spends the whole movie asking to get hot chocolate and ends up burning their tongue because they are too excited when they finally get it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)    

The sibling who gets sick and throws up because they ate all the chocolate in all of the advent calendars, which almost ruins the holiday.
