Christmas party games everyone will love

Everyone loves a good party game – especially at Christmas. There is no better way to en-courage guests to start mingling. Christmas parties are the perfect chance to pass down family traditions to future generations.
Whether that is drinking hot cocoa while playing cards or playing festive Christmas sons while doing the limbo as a family.
Make sure to keep the traditions going every year. Here are some game ideas for this Christmas.

20 Questions – Christmas edition:
2 and more Players
One player, the answerer, picks a Christmas themed object. All other players ask the answerer “yes” or “no” questions to guess what the object is. If no one guesses correctly after 20 questions, the answerer has won and picks another object for the next round. If someone guesses correctly, they get to pick the object the next round.
Candy Canes (Holiday Spoons):
3 and more Players
You will need a deck of cards and 3+ people circled around a pile of candy canes, one less than the number of players. Every-one takes turns pulling cards with the goal to be the first to get four of a kind (ex, four Kings). Once you do, take a candy cane as stealthily as possible. Once that happens, everyone else races to grab on the remaining candy canes. The person who doesn’t get a candy can is eliminated. Do this until one winner re-mains.
Santa limbo:
3 and more Players
Have participants put a “Santa belly” under their shirt using a pillow. Place a limbo stick at a starting height. Then line up, and one by one try to limbo underneath (with the Santa belly) until everyone has tried. Slightly lower the stick and have those who made it through go again. Continually lower the stick until one winner remains.
Christmas Carol Pictionary:
4 and more Players
Write down a list of Christ-mas Carols on separate flash cards. Divide players into teams. One person draws from the pile of cards and has one minute to illustrate the Christmas Carol. If their team guesses correctly, they get one point. Make sure to alternate team artists.
Teams take turns until one reaches twenty points.
Christmas Memory Game:
2 and more Players
Pick eight Christmas images (ex. Gift, Santa, Snow, etc). Draw or print two of each so you will have a total of sixteen cards. Now place cards on the table in 4×4 layout. Each player gets a chance to pick a card, then try to find the match. When a player finds a match, they keep it, get a point and get to try for another match. Play until someone reaches the predetermined amount of points to win.
Stocking Guessing Game:
4 and more Players
First you need a host to put random items in a stocking, tie a ribbon or string around the top of the stocking so that no one can peek. Sit in a circle and pass it around to let everyone feel what is inside. Give them note cards so that they can write down their guesses. The person who guesses the most correct items wins.
Christmas Charades:
4 and more Players
First, write out this list of Christmas terms to act out. Separate everyone into teams, then get one person from each team to do the acting. Like regular charades, the actors are not allowed to talk or make signals of any letters. Every time a team guesses correctly within the time limit, they get one point. The first team to get twenty points win the game.
