2. Human Christmas Tree
Pair up and nominate one person in each pair to be the Christmas tree. Set a stopwatch to 30 seconds and race to decorate your ‘tree’ in green crêpe paper, baubles, tinsel… anything you can find. You’ll need someone to judge the best-dressed tree.
3. Lapland Limbo
Doing the limbo is always tricky, but have you tried it with a Santa-sized belly? Take it in turns to wear a large shirt and stuff a cushion or balloon underneath, secured with a belt or some tinsel. Then limbo under a string of Christmas cards which get lowered with every round. How low can you go?
4. The Big Freeze
At the start of dinner or just whenever you want to start a game, nominate someone to be Mr or Mrs Freeze. That person freezes randomly whenever he or she chooses, even if it’s mid-sentence. As soon as you notice the person has frozen, you should freeze too. The last person to freeze loses and must do a festive forfeit - like eating a cold sprout or a chunk of smelly blue cheese.
