One of the traditions we had growing up was getting together with friends and neighbours for a Christmas Party. The kids would play party games and the adults join in, chat and enjoy some mulled wine and mince pies. It’s something that we’ve been looking forward to doing with our own kids and that connection you have making memories with others and sharing the joy is fantastic. Whether you throw a Christmas Party before Christmas, Christmas Eve or between Christmas and the New Year try some of these fun Christmas Party Games for Families as a great way to spend time together as a family and with others.
