Family Christmas Games
One thing that was traditional in our home at Christmas was a family gift that we opened on Christmas Eve and every time, it was a new board game! We would play our new family Christmas games for hours on end and it was always so much fun. It is one of my happier memories – playing Monopoly for days on end, laughing, fighting, Mom’s homemade hot cocoa and eating.
Game playing really embraces camaraderie, playfulness and fierce but friendly competition. Christmas games also serve the purpose of bringing friends and family together to interact directly with each other in a competitive and happy way.
Participating in Christmas games is another way of sharing, but it is also doing something tangible to get into a festive, jolly and relaxed mood for the holidays. Otherwise, its easy to get caught up in all the preparation and shopping and become ridden with anxiety.
Christmas games are still a tradition I like to maintain and I am sharing a list of the Top 10 Fun Game Ideas for Kids This Christmas from Amazon. Utilizing Amazon prime and their competitive pricing, it’s a great source for games that make for an AWESOME family gift that lasts year round! I hope this list provides you with some great ideas and makes your Christmas extra memorable!
