Christmas Trivia Game About Santa

If you love Christmas and need a Christmas trivia game for an upcoming holiday party, here's a fun one to try. Feel free to try it yourself before using with friends and family, but don't peek at the answers until you are finished responding to each question. Good luck and happy holidays!

Directions for the Christmas Trivia Game

  • Pass out a piece of paper and a pencil or pen to each player.
  • Read the questions aloud one at a time and ask people to write down their answers.
  • Give ample time between each question so people have time to think and write their answers down.
  • Before revealing the answers, ask anyone if they need a question read again before the answers are revealed.
  • Reveal the answers one at a time by rereading the question and then reading the answer.
  • Ask people to add up their correct answers, and if you think you have a few who might cheat, ask people to exchange answer sheets with the person next to them before revealing the answers.
  • Give a prize to the person who got the most right. Have a few prizes ready in case there is a tie.
