Christmas Games



About a half-an-hour of good fun at any Christmas party or holiday gathering. The titles of these 26 Christmas songs have been badly butchered (probably by government bureaucrats). It is up to the players to restore them to their original form. Click on the descriptions to download the pdf files.

Example: "Befell at a clement bewitching hour"

NUTtin' for Christmas

A nutty bit of fun for any party. If a "seashore nut" is a beechnut, then what's a "money nut"? Click here to download pdf file.

As Opening Presents"

Raucous Recitations

Here are a selected few of the hundreds of available parodies and rewrites of traditional Christmas songs and verse.

The 200 Charades titles are in an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) file designed to be printed out on Avery business-card stock (10 per sheet, template #8371). Alternatively, you can print on plain paper and cut with scissors; this will create rather flimsy but somewhat less expensive 'cards.' In addition to the file for the titles, there is an Acrobat file for the reverse side of each category. This enables the creation of five stacks of 40-cards each that can be numbered and selected by rolling a die — if you roll a six, you get to choose your category.
