You Can Have a Party Without Christmas Party Games
There is a recipe for every great Christmas party, including good food, joyful music, and lots of company. But, the most important thing which every Christmas party must-have is joy and laughter, and what’s a better way to get everyone in a happy, joyful mood than having them join in Christmas party games.
While gathering for a nice dinner and celebrating a holiday is fun, staying safe and away from groups of people has become the top priority this year. But don’t worry! Let’s have a look at these Christmas party games that you and your family can enjoy in smaller groups or even without gathering under the same roof.
A fun, easy family game that anyone can enjoy. The game’s goal is to guess a phrase or a word based on pantomimed clues that one of the players describes. For every right answer, you get a point. The one with the most points wins.
There are tons of words and phrases from various categories you can choose from, but the most festive theme is Christmas. You don’t actually have to meet in-person to play this game. All you need is a good internet connection and an online platform of your choosing like Google Meet, Facebook Group Call, and WebEx.
This is probably the most meaningful game out of all these games as it represents the holiday’s spirit of giving. It is not a game, more like a fun activity which a group of people can enjoy on holiday. From co-workers and friends to family members, all can enjoy having someone give them a present.
All the participants can use an online tool to help them find out who they are going to send their gift to, or someone can draw names from a hat. After knowing who they will give the present to, comes the most fun part, choosing the gifts. You can either give them something they want or make a joke and buy them something outrageous. Then send them the present through the mail and enjoy a fun and somewhat awkward unboxing section.
Similar to the charades game, this one is a word based game. Participants are divided into different teams, and each takes turns to draw on a whiteboard then let everyone guess the thing you’re drawing. If you don’t have a board, there is a feature on your pc called paint, which you can draw and share your screen with others through face call. Get it right, and you get a point. The team with the most points wins.
Guess the Gift
Another guessing game that can be played through a group call. Each person will prepare several presents and take turns showing them to the others while they have to guess what is inside. Also, the person holding the present needs to shake it or give everyone else some kind of clues so they can guess what is inside. To spread a little spirit of giving, you can send the present to the person who guesses it right.
Christmas Song Trivia
You can’t have a great Christmas party games list without a music-related game. A person will be in charge of choosing the song and preparing some questions related to that song. For example:
- Who was the singer?
- Which year was it composed?
- Who was the songwriter?
- What is the name of the song?
Instead of having one person in charge of the whole thing, you can divide the work to everyone evenly so that they can also share their favorite songs with each other.
Tired of listening to a song sung by the same singer every time? Why don’t you change it up and let one of your friends sing a song and rate their singing skills? Either they have the voice of an angel or a voice that could potentially break your eardrum; you still have a good time with your friends.
Winter is a time for joy, laughter, and the spirit of giving. It’s okay if you don’t have time to get everything prepared perfectly, the most important thing is to have fun and enjoy a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. And don’t forget to try out these Christmas party games if you want to spice things up. Happy holidays to all!
