Christmas, for a lot of guys in America is a synonym for
fun and Xmas games. The cold season and snowing weather, the
lovely holiday season leading up to New Year is the most enjoyable
period of the year for most Americans. Xmas is celebrated
in many ways across the globe but has one adjective attached
to it always, FUN and Xmas games.
Christmas parties are often the order of the day during the
season. A lot of parties during this season have customized
games called Xmas games. Many games are played with Christmas
being the theme.
Xmas related words like Santa Claus, snow, reindeer etc are
given to groups and they are asked to make as many related
words. The group with the most words wins.
Holiday draw is another fun filled game where holiday or
Christmas related words are written on chits of paper. One
person from a group comes ahead and picks a chit and explains
the word by making pictures of that word on a paper or board.
The team which guesses all the words wins.
Another Xmas game, which can easily bring a smile on everyone’s
face, is Secret Santa. This game can be used as a motivating
game at workplace as well. Names of everyone in a group or
workplace are written in chits and put in a box. Each guy
picks up one chit. The one who picks the chit becomes the
secret Santa for the guy whose name is written on it. The
secret Santa has to give gifts or surprise the other guy during
Christmas season. This is a very interesting game as Santa
is not revealed to anyone and remains a secret.
“Sun or Snow “is a good activity based game.
One guy becomes the weather person and turns his back to
other players. All the players stand facing the back of
the weather person behind a boundary line. As soon as the
weatherperson calls "Sun," the rest of the players
race towards him
When he calls "Snow!" the players must stop and
freeze as if they were statues. Immediately after calling
out “snow” weatherperson turns around to look
at the other players. The player who moves or shakes goes
back to the start or the boundary line. The weatherperson
again calls "Sun" or "Snow” and the
game continues until one of the players tags the weatherperson.
He becomes the next weatherperson.
Xmas games just make the joyous Christmas season even more
fun filled and are loved by one and all.
