Below are 20 incredible suggestions for things to do this Labor Day weekend—whether alone, or with friends! So check out the list, and have a fun, exciting, and safe holiday! Thanks!1.

Watch Carol and shake your head dramatically every time you’re pained by the tragedy of their love. Image via The Weinstein Company/Screengrab 8. Order a pizza, tip the delivery guy $50 when it arrives, and tell them, “This is from Carol.” Then turn on Carol and eat the pizza with a knife and fork. Image via The Weinstein Company/Screengrab 9. Find a parade in your area! 10. Pop some popcorn, dump some peanut M&Ms in the bowl, mix it all around, turn off the lights, take a deep breath, and push play on the film Carol.

Go to the nearest Blockbuster, walk up to the cashier, proudly ask for a copy of Carol, listen to them say, “This isn’t a Blockbuster anymore, this is a Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf,” go home, and rent Carol on iTunes or Amazon.

Surprise everyone at your Labor Day BBQ by pulling out your copy of Carol and saying, “Who wants to watch Carol after dessert?” Watch Carol alone after dessert.

Contact the man in this story who made a wearable LED television, ask for a detailed set of instructions, follow them, buy two large American flags and poles, then march down your street playing Carol on your shirt while waving your two flags.

17. Attend a Trump rally and pass out copies of Carol. Befriend the one person who says, “Thank you!” Watch Carol with them. Image via The Weinstein Company/Screengrab
18. Buy a fur coat that costs your entire life savings, minus the price of a pack of cigarettes. Put it on, light up a cigarette (don’t inhale) and watch Carol. When it ends, set the coat on fire.

Turn on Carol and call Sarah Paulson the first time she appears onscreen. When she answers, say, “You were so great in this Carol scene!” After she calls you a “creepy fucking asshole” and asks how you got her number, say, “I can’t help you with that,” and hang up.
