Make two teams based on the number of participants. Set a Christmas stocking for every team on the opposite corner of the line.

The answerer, one of the players, selects a Christmas-themed object. To figure out what the object is, the other players ask the answerer Yes & No questions.

If someone successfully guesses, they get to choose the object for the following round.
Xmas Charades (4+ Players)

The Xmas game is won by the first side to score twenty points.
Blind Fold Drawing (3+ Players)

Two Truth-One Lie (4+ Players)
You can make this classic into a Christmas game by having participants come up with three Christmas presents.

One person announces their three Christmas presents in a random sequence, and the other players try to determine which one is a fake.
Story Time (4+ Players)

Set a time restriction of 1–3 minutes and have a judge select the most correct present.

The aim is not to become the last person to properly identify who they are!
Vacay A to Z (4+ Players)
Distribute sheets with the alphabet printed vertically on them. Then, groups must compete to fill up the alphabet list with a festive phrase for each letter. The team that finishes their list first wins. Check the winning team’s list with a judge to ensure that the terms qualify as vacation keywords. Check the list from the second quickest team if theirs isn’t correct.
