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.
