Name That Carol

Christmas Song Game with a Challenging Twist

Christmas Carolers

Name that Carol will challenge your ability to remember popular Christmas carols with only a three or four word phrase from the songs.

Have you ever found yourself trying to remember the title of a familiar song? It's on the tip of your tongue. You know a few words ... but ... you just can't remember the title. This game is based on that frustration.

At your Christmas party, divide your guests into teams or let them play individually.

  • Read each phrase aloud and have your guests jump to their feet if they know the answer. (You may want to make a rule that the same person can't answer twice in a row unless no one else knows the answer.)

  • If playing in teams score points for correct answers. You may even want to subtract points for incorrect answers or no answer. (Often people jump to their feet without knowing the answer and subtracting a point may discourage this.)

  • If playing individually you may want to give each correct answer a chocolate bell or some other Christmas candy.

  • You could also print the clues and give a time limit for teams and individuals to fill in their answers, but I find the more interactive game play better in most cases.

Note: Avoid singing the words unless no one is able to come up with an answer.
