10 Christmas Games That'll Have Everyone Feeling Jolly
My Christmases growing up were filled with games—whether it was "who can stay quietest the longest" on Christmas Eve with my cousins (there were eight of us born within a decade of each other, so it was a lot), or playing the latest fresh-from-the-Christmas-wrap board games with my aunts and uncle on Christmas night.
So Christmas just doesn't feel like Christmas without a game or two. While pretty much any party game or board game can be a fun addition to your holiday party, choosing a game with a Christmas twist can help boost the festive feel. Of course, when you're choosing a game, you need to consider the audience (some of the racier options won't work as office Christmas party games—or for families), the size of the get-together, and of course, the fun factor.
Check out these Christmas game options to help you make this year's holiday even more fun.

Christmas Party Games to Play with Friends or Coworkers
For the office Christmas party or your traditional Christmas cocktail party, you might have to be a little more creative to get the gang to participate, especially if some guests are still remote. And you'll probably want to stick to games with more of an overall holiday or winter theme to be mindful of the many ways your coworkers may be celebrating the season.
