How to Play:
Each player begins with a wrapped gift in their lap. As Twas the Night Right Before Christmas is being read by the Host, the players listen for the words "left" and "right". When they hear the word "left", everyone passes the gift to the person on their left. Same as when the story says "right."

Winner: Each player gets to keep the gift they have in their lap when the story is over.
