The passing game is quite popular and commonly used in Christmas parties. A Christmas parcel should be used for this game. It can be gifted to the winner of this game. Participants have to sit in a circle and pass the parcel while the music is being played. To make the game suited for the occasion, one may think of playing Christmas carols instead of the regular tracks. The player caught with the parcel when the music stops, should be asked a Christmas trivia question. If the player answers incorrectly, then the game should continue as usual without that player.
Making Santa Costume
A game or competition for creating the Santa costume should prove to be an enjoyable activity for Christmas. Such an activity is suited for large groups, since it can be divided into number of teams. Each group needs to have enough members for creating a Santa costume. A set of necessary materials should be allotted to each team. The activity can be made interesting by keeping the participants from using scissors. Awards like the best Santa Cap and similar others can be given to participants. This game can be played in any given setting such as home, office, etc.
Christmas Treasure Hunt
The treasure hunt though is a commonly played game, it could prove to be enjoyable and fun for large groups. Both children and adults enjoy playing this interesting and fun-filled game. To play Christmas treasure hunt, one should make a list of items that are available at home. These items could be anything from pen, pencils, toys, caps, etc. As far as possible, one should try to choose the items or articles associated with Christmas. It is necessary to choose around 20 items for the treasure hunt game; participants should be divided in two groups.

The Christmas Chain
This game is meant for large groups. In fact, with greater number of players, the game becomes even more enjoyable. The participants should be divided in two groups and made to sit in a linear fashion. First player in the line should write a sentence (not too short), preferably the one which is related to Christmas. This sentence should then be propagated from the first team member to the last one by memorizing it (and not showing them what is written on the paper). The last person should be asked to stand up and say the sentence aloud. One would be amazed to discover that the sentence takes a form that is far different from the original one; most of the words being communicated, in the process get altered. This is a fun activity with no single winner or loser.
