Christmas Party Games

Dec 01, 2015

Christmas is the perfect time to reconnect with family and friends. So get into the holiday spirit and try some of these fun Christmas party games at your festivities this year! With most of these games, the bigger the group, the more fun they'll be!

Where is Santa?

Everyone sits in a circle. One person is selected to be Rudolph and must leave the room. Someone is secretly selected to be Santa. When Rudolph returns, Santa must discretely wink at people without being detected by Rudolph. Those who are winked at must say “Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!” The game ends when Rudolph identifies Santa. Make the game even more fun by giving a prize to every winner!

Pass the Present

This is similar to hot potato, only with a Christmas present! Before playing, wrap a small gift several times in wrapping paper. Then have an adult play some music while everyone passes the present around in a circle. When the music stops, the person holding the gift gets to unwrap a layer of wrapping paper. The person who unwraps the final layer wins the gift!

Christmas Charades

Divide into two teams. Players from each team will take turns acting out a Christmas carol, movie or character. Use an hourglass, stopwatch or timer to add some extra pressure!

Pin the Nose on Rudolph

This is the Christmas version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Find a poster of Rudolph (or make one yourself). Blindfold each guest and have them attempt to stick (with tape!) a round piece of red construction paper to Rudolph’s nose. The person who gets the closest wins a prize!

Secret Santa

No Christmas party is complete without a Secret Santa gift exchange! Prior to Christmas, have everyone who will be attending your party draw the name of another guest. Decide on a limit for how much you can spend (usually $10-$15). At the party everyone can open their gifts. It’s up to you whether you reveal who purchased the gifts or not.

Gift Grab! (a.k.a The White Elephant Game)

This is a fun variation on the traditional Secret Santa gift exchange. Instead of buying a gift for a particular person, you purchase something general like a mug, gift card, chocolates, etc. At the party, each guest picks a number out of a hat. The person who draws #1 chooses a gift first and they unwrap it. The person who drew #2 can either steal the gift from #1 or unwrap a new one. The person who drew #3 can either steal from #1 or #2, or unwrap a new one, and so on. A gift can only be stolen twice.

This is probably the cutest thing about growing up I've ever read, I just... Everyone grows up. No one's the exact same person they were 3 years ago, sometimes they're not even the same way they were 3 days ago. Every single is person is going to look back at their past self and cringe at something- something they said, something they did, something they didn't do. It's a sign of maturity. Everyone gets there (eventually; some earlier than others). I came back from a break around two or three months ago and wow did I feel embarrassed. I was in such an extreme scene phase when I made this account and everything was so.. yikes. My bio and albums were scattered with pictures of band members and "emo" YouTubers and I wanted to, like, burn it all (I deleted a lot of them, but the less cringey ones are still there). And my username..? Oh man my username. Not gonna be able to live this one down, that's for sure. I'm going to stay until I'm 18, if I find the time to (which I should because cyber school isn't that time consuming so). Maybe the remnants of 12 year old Kristin are the bane of my existence, but I've made some nice memories here, and I'm looking forward to making many more. (:

In other words, he's building a wall so that people will stop breaking the law.  2. He's hired many Muslims and has many Muslim friends. His ban on Muslims has recently changed, but even in its' original state, it was a temporary ban meant to combat radical Islam. Trump's Muslim policies have never had anything to do with thinking that all Muslims are bad, it's just that most terrorists are Muslim and a temporary Muslim ban would eliminate most of the terrorists coming into our country.  3. Business deals with politics, and perhaps we need someone who's not a politician? Many have become corrupt, have been found to blatantly lie to their people, have not kept their promises after being elected. If anything, the fact that Trump is successful and yet not a politician is even more of a reason to vote for him.  Honestly, I thought the whole "Trump hates Mexicans and Muslims" thing would have been over by now. It's so obvious that he doesn't hate them, all you have to do is listen to what he says.    1) Just a few issues with the wall, disregarding the purpose. Is the wall going to replace current fencing? There may be major breaches whilst the wall is under construction. Will Trump have permission to build on every inch of land the wall is to be placed upon? How do you expect Mexico to pay for it when they outright refused? The geography alone will not make it easy to build completely along the border. Do you not think the alienating Mexico will create a larger social divide between the two countries? Finally, the engineering alone behind the wall is so implausible, I don't think Trump himself realises just how difficult it will be. 2) "He has many Muslim friends" - Oh dear, the classic anti-racist comment. 'I'm not racist because I'm friends with blacks'. His current proposal is just as absurd as his original proposal. He wants to ban Muslims coming from countries with a terrorist past? (or has he changed his proposal yet again?). Let's see, that consists of almost every country in the world if you want to go back far enough. How far in the past does he want to look? He also mentioned that he wants to suspend immigration of the same people trying to enter countries with US alliance. What, does he plan on flying over and stopping Iraqis from entering the UK? That should be entertaining. This ban though... yes, you're preventing 'Muslim terrorists' from entering the US but you're also preventing 1.5 billion other Muslims from entering. That totally seems fair. Why don't you ban holiday makers from entering the US too, because 1 decided to commit murder in the past? You'll probably get a similar attacker-innocent ratio. 3) Can we stop with the whole idea that being able to run a business means you can run a country? If that were true the UK would have had Sir Alan Sugar in power years ago. He's not even an economist. He probably doesn't even know what a Current Account is. The government isn't a business. The US has a free market economy, not a command economy. Trump isn't going to be a salesman, he's going to be a Prime Minister. It's vital he knows his politics. He may have ideas that people love but he has no idea how to run a country. P.s. I really worry for America's future economy if their idea of a 'successful' businessman is someone who ends up piling on so much debt that his businesses reach bankruptcy. There are countless businessmen more successful than Trump that 90% of people haven't ever heard of. Trump loves to big himself up and so do his supporters. You're making the man sound far greater than he actually is and it's possibly going to cost you the future of your country.

The only thing you could blame Bush for is the war in Iraq, but even though Obama didn't start the war in Iraq, he ended it in the worst way possible.

Don't worry I felt the same way when getting back on this account. I had made it when I was about to turn 11. I am 15 now. Time changes a lot and I am definitely not the same person I was when starting kidzworld. I'm starting my Sophomore year after summer is over and honestly I'll probably try to stick to this website for as long as I can until they lock my account when I'm 18.
