Christmas Trivia Games
These trivia questions can be a fun addition to a family holiday game night or for a holiday party. Participants can answer the questions individually or in teams.
White Elephant Game
If you’d like to use these questions in a White Elephant party, guests can draw numbers between 1 and 25. The guest would then have to answer that trivia question correctly to draw a prize.
A white elephant party is where each guest brings a wrapped gift. Participants have the opportunity to pick one of the wrapped gifts. You can opt whether or not to let guests pick a particular gift as their gift or not after another guest has already chosen it.
If a guest chooses a gift that has already been chosen, the person whose gift was snagged or stolen can choose an alternate gift. The gifts are unwrapped after all guests have a gift. Check out these White Elephant Rules for variations on the game.
I am hoping to have a family white elephant party with my husband and kids this year as a new family holiday tradition. I was thinking we could either make gifts for the party or purchase inexpensive things like chocolate or holiday ornaments, etc.
