These are Christian Christmas Party Games that can be played at church or at home. Sometimes I feel like Christ has been taken out of Christmas. There needed to be a little more activities out there that provided some fun, but were still rooted in Christ. Here are a couple games you can play this holiday season that hail back to our Savior's birth.
If you are planning a gift exchange, try using the Birth of Jesus story. This is the game where each player has a wrapped gift and must pass the gift around a circle each time they hear the word left or right. You can use gift that your guests have brought themselves, such as a white elephant item, or you can provide small gifts that your guests can take home as a party favor.
Here is the beginning of the story so you can get a feel for what I mean...
In those days, Caesar Augustus decided to count everyone LEFT living in the whole Roman world.
Joseph LEFT, taking Mary with him RIGHT to his town of Bethlehem to register. When they arrived, there were no rooms LEFT. All of the inns in Bethlehem were RIGHT full. There was just nowhere LEFT for them to stay. Finally, someone offered to let them stay RIGHT in their stable.
Mary was pregnant and while in Bethlehem the RIGHT time came for her to give birth. She gave birth to a boy RIGHT there. RIGHT there in a Bethlehem stable, the Savior of the world was born. Mary wrapped him with LEFT over strips of cloth and laid him RIGHT in a manger.
I hope you have a Merry Christmas and enjoy these games at home or at your church.
