Family Christmas Games

Christmas is a time to come together and celebrate all the good in the world. In my family, Christmas Eve is the day when everyone get’s together to catch up and spend quality time with one another. It is so nice to strengthen relationships with extended family members that I don’t get to see often. These holiday parties keep us close and in touch with one another’s busy lives. Games in particular help break the ice and create hilarious lasting memories for all involved.

In my opinion, group games are a staple at any family Christmas gathering. They unite, bring joy, and are inexpensive and very simple to set up. Below I have put together a list of my favorite family games that are perfect for playing at your Christmas festivities this year. Just be prepared to laugh a lot because some of these are pretty hilarious!
