This sounds too good to be true. Can you really get paid to watch Christmas movies and eat cookies? Thanks to the folks at EduBirdie you can. They are conducting a really difficult research project. The question is, can you prolong the Christmas mood?

You could be hired as a  so-called “Moodcatcher” to help find out. Some Moodcatchers get to eat full holiday meals, complete with the milk and cookies for dessert. Next, some participants simply get gifts. That is all you have to do. Open the mail and open a gift.

Christmas movie

You could get paid to sit on the couch and watch Christmas movies. Snacks are included.

In addition, some researchers get paid to binge on Christmas movies. Included are movies such as Elf, The Grinch, Frosty the Snowman, A Christmas Story, and more. Finally, some participants will keep Christmas tunes on their playlist for additional two weeks.

Study participants complete a checklist each day. The list measures their Christmas mood, stress, motivation and more.  Finally, this is the best part, you get paid. So not only to you get to eat for free, watch and listen to Christmas movies and music and get gifts. You also get $1000 to do it. I would call that a mood booster. Talk about a fantastic research project. Sign me up!

How do I get paid to watch Christmas Movies and eat cookies

Winners are announced the day after Christmas, December 26th. The project begins immediately and lasts for two weeks. In conclusion, if you love Christmas, you have to look into this. To get paid for enjoying Christmas longer this year, you simply read the rules and apply here. Can you really catch the Christmas mood and not let it go?

Here is a break down of the five kinds of people needed for this Christmas project.

  • Home Aloners

    The Home Aloners will have to watch at least one Christmas movie every day for 2 weeks. The list of movies has been preselected. There are 14 to choose from and all video material, as well as snacks and drinks are provided.

  • Cookie Guards

    Every day, delicious food from the prepared Christmas menu is sent to the participants. Each Cookie Guard will be provided with one full Christmas meal each day and a set of cookies with milk or another favorite drink

  • Heartgivers

    This one looks at how music affects moods. Participants will listen to a Christmas music playlist for at least an hour and a half a day.

  • Grinch Hunters

    Each of these folks get a small gift from Edubirdie every day. All you have to do is open them and report how the affected your mood.

  • Luck Elves

    This is perhaps the best of all.  The tasks from the previous groups, are combined. Lucky Elves are expected to do all the mentioned above at once. Let’s see how it affects their total Christmas mood when brought all together.
