How To Have Even More Fun! 4 Christmas Day Games


1. The Santa Hat Game

Have fun with the hat game, especially if you have a large gathering on Christmas day.

For this Christmas game, as your guests arrive, give them a Santa Hat. These are inexpensive and can be purchased for $1 at the dollar store, or even less in bulk, if you plan ahead.

As everyone goes about getting food, chatting with others and opening presents the room will look very festive with everyone wearing their Santa hats.

However, the object of this game is: to not have your hat on.

As people forget about the hats, the object is to get rid of your hat and not be the last one wearing a Santa hat.

Inevitably there will be one person so wrapped up in a conversation or the buffet table, they forget to take off their hat and will be left the game's loser.

This is a game that can be played again and again as the day goes on.


2. Christmas Memory: Remember the Gifts

One fun memory game that kids particularly like is to make everyone pay careful attention to all the gifts that are opened on Christmas day.

After the gifts are removed from the room (or you remove yourselves from the gift room) have everyone try and remember every single gift everyone got.

Include stockings and any food gifts. Tell people they only have to remember the items that were opened that day, not any gifts they received and opened prior to Christmas day.

This can be a fun game that's particularly popular with kids because they love to relive the gift magic.

In addition, if they were so immersed with their own gifts they didn't notice anyone else's this is a good chance for them to educate themselves about what everyone got that day.


3. Guess Me Stockings

3. Guess Me Stockings

If you need a Christmas game to keep everyone busy before dinner, try the "guess me" game.

Buy some large men's heavy socks, not low-rise, but the type that are worn outdoors in the winter that are thick and come at least to the calf. Sometimes you can find real Christmas Stockings that are reduced and would be suitable. They need to be thick so it is harder to guess.

Put several items in the socks.

Make sure identical items are in each sock.

These items should be related to Christmas in some way. For instance, you might include a small unbreakable ornament, scotch tape, a pinecone, a Hershey's kiss, and also things like a roll of candy or package of gum.

Have each person feel the socks (having two socks just makes the game go faster, but you can play with just one sock), and write down their guesses about what's in the socks.

Be sure to tell everyone how many items are in each sock. The winner gets, you guessed it, one of the socks!


4. Christmas Idol

If you have a bunch of wanna-be performers in your group on Christmas day, how about playing a little Christmas game of "Christmas Idol"?

Set up a small table for the "judges" and have teams of 2 people (or individuals, if they want) sing a Christmas carol.

Tell them to have a lot of fun with the song, and even add a Santa hat or other dress-up items if they wish.

The winners can take home a CD of Christmas music.

Play it in rounds if you want with one time just the children perform and are judged by the adults, or if, conversely, the adults perform and are judged by the children.

Make sure there are at least 3 judges.

And, as always, don't forget to have the camera handy!




Merry Christmas!

Hope you enjoy these Christmas games!
