TODAY's Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb explain how to play "dysfunctional family BINGO," are paid a visit from The Grinch, and Hoda tries out a pair of glasses that can help cure jet lag.
The holidays are a time to get close to family, and on the TODAY, close they were. Kathie Lee and Hoda were joined on Friday by Hoda's mom, Sami, and Kathie Lee's sister-in-law, Sandy.
Hoda and KLG cooked up some treats with their loved ones, but also came up with a fun game to play with your own kin if you struggle getting through dinner: family holiday bingo.
"You come up with things you know are going to happen," said Hoda, and then you put them on a personalized bingo card.
If you have an uncle who tells the same story or a great aunt who falls asleep, why not make a game of it to pass the time?
Behold, a taste of what was on KLG and Hoda's holiday bingo game:
- Hoda will tell a lie
- Kathie Lee will kiss TODAY crew member Jerry
- Al Roker will break out in song
- Kathie Lee will mention her dog, Bambino
- Hoda will ruin a craft segment
- Willard Scott will forget who he's talking to
What's going on your card?
