Christmas Party Games for Groups

Have Fun with Christmas Party Games for Groups

Getting together with your friends, family, or colleagues over the holidays can be a great way to have fun and relax.

Some folks enjoy just hanging out, talking and eating, while others like to have planned activities.

If you're in the latter group and are looking for some ways to keep the party moving so you don't have to just stand by the cookie table all nights, here are some good Christmas party games for groups.

Christmas Party Games for Groups of Any Size

1. Christmas Bingo - Bingo is an easy game for both children and adults to play, and it's a classic that everyone usually enjoys. You can buy or make Christmas bingo cards online that include holiday-themed words rather than numbers.

2. Christmas Charades: Turn a regular party game into a holiday event by having guests act out Christmas-themed events such as Santa's arrival, decorating the Christmas tree, etc.

3. Christmas Word Challenge: Give each guest a sheet of paper with the phrase “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays” written across the top, and then give them three minutes to come up with as many words as possible using only the letters in those phrases. The person who comes up with the most words in the three-minuet limit wins.

4. Christmas Carol Pictionary: Write the names of Christmas carols on strips of paper and then divide your guests into two groups.Have one person select a slip of paper and get the others to guess the name of the Christmas carol by drawing pictures on a large sheet of paper or a whiteboard. Limit each round to 2 minutes. If the team members can guess what the "artist" is drawing, they get one point. First team to three points wins.

5. Christmas Movie Character Match - Sure, we all remember the name of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. But how many other characters can you remember? What was the name of the girl who went with Frosty on the train? Or the magician who followed them? Who was the snowman who narrated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? Visit IMDB to find the names of lesser-known characters from these popular movies and then have partygoers guess which movies each character belongs to. The person who matches the most characters wins.

6. Christmas Mad-Libs - Kids especially love Mad-Libs, but it can be a fun Christmas party game for groups of adults, too (especially if they've had a little egg nog). To make up your own funny Christmas story, replacing some of the words in a classic poem or song. Before the party, find a copy of a favorite poem or song, such as "The Night Before Christmas" or "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer." Then copy it into your word processing program, replacing some of the words with numbered blank spaces. Be sure to keep track of what type of word (noun, verb, adjective, name, time of day, location, etc.) should go in each blank space. At the party, ask guests to randomly shout out types of words (noun, verb, etc.) and then read the new version of your classic.
