Only 51 days before Christmas but I haven’t heard any Christmas carol yet unlike before wherein Christmas carols can be heard anywhere as early as September. It’s so unlikely for the country that has the longest Christmas celebration. However, I can still feel that Christmas is approaching because of the cold breeze most especially in the morning and dusk.
Christmas is the most awaited festivity of most Filipino families because aside from it is full of family oriented activities it is also the time for reunions. In fact, my families, both maternal and paternal side, have Christmas reunions every year. But this year, I want our reunion to be little different from the previous years. Instead of dress code, I want to order customized matching funny t shirts for the whole family. I find family matching shirts cute plus it would be a one-stop shopping for me.
Of course every family gathering wouldn’t be fun without games. Below are Christmas family game ideas and activities that can liven up family reunions:
1. The all-time favorite parlor games
•Trip to Jerusalem
•The Boat is Sinking
•Charades (guessing games)
2. Field Games
•Tug of War
3. Family Showdown
•Each family can prepare a song or dance number that they can present during the reunion. The family with the best performance will be the winner. Prizes can be cash or grocery items.
4. Family Bingo
•This simple yet famous card game can make family reunions more fun. Only one card per family. Prizes can be cash or grocery items.
Wait! Is it Christmas song that I am hearing right now?
