Christmas party game

Here is a fun game to play at Christmas parties. Have everyone stand. Read the questions and reward the last ones standing with door prizes! Some of these questions are original and some were borrowed. You may want to add some of your own.

  1. If  you have ever bought your wife an appliance for Christmas, please sit down.
  2. If  you have never watched  “It’s a wonderful Life”  please sit down.
  3. If  you have ever bought a gift at the very last minute on your way to a party, please sit down.
  4. If you put your Christmas tree up before Thanksgiving, please sit down.
  5. If you ever bought a dessert or dish at the store, put it in your pan and passed it off as homemade, please sit down.
  6. If you ever sneaked and unwrapped  your gift for a peak, then re-wrapped it and put it back under the tree, please sit down.
  7. If you ever received a Christmas card from someone you weren’t planning to send a card to but quickly stuck one in the mail for them, please sit down.
  8. If you have ever left any Christmas decorations up past January 31, please sit down.
  9. If you have ever opened a gift, acted excited but secretly you were thinking how awful the gift was, please sit down.
  10. If you have ever re-gifted someone, please sit down.

1 Corinthians 13 (A Christmas Version)

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies, preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime, but do not show love to my family, I’m just another cook.

If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity, but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes, attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir’s cantata but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.

Love stops the cooking to hug the child. Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the husband. Love is kind, though harried and tired. Love doesn’t envy another’s home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.

Love doesn’t yell at the kids to get out of the way, but is thankful they are there to be in the way. Love doesn’t give only to those who are able to give in return but rejoices in giving to those who can’t.

Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost, golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of love will endure.

Merry Christmas and lots of love to you and yours!
