Quirky Christmas party ideas for family and friends

It’s that time of the year when joy and mirth come together for some major festive collaboration! After all, if you can’t cut loose during the holiday season, then when can you? Here are some quirky Christmas party ideas that you can share with your loved ones:


1. Wreath-making

One unique activity that you can enjoy with your family and friends is the art making Christmas wreaths! After all, who wants to be stuck with just any old store-bought wreath when you can make your very own? Try incorporating some wacky themes and motifs to welcome the holiday joy!


2. Reverse theme

Christmas is commonly associated with winter and snow. To make this year’s celebration more unique, try switching things up by making your party’s theme a tropical one so that everyone can enjoy the warmth, in both the physical and emotional sense.


3. Cookie exchange

Gift exchanges while fun, can sometimes lead to tension. After all, there’s always the stress of worrying about getting the “perfect” gift. Instead, exchange cookies along with their recipes. It’s practical and you can even bake your own batch to re-live the holidays!


4. Movie marathon

If you ever lack entertainment at your party, there’s always your good ol’ trusty television to turn to. Play a string of crowd favourites or keep it to a particular theme (better yet if you tie it in to your party’s theme). Even a slew of B-grade, campy flicks are great for eliciting a couple of good-natured groans!


5. Sing carols

Carolling may be an ancient tradition, but it’s one that has stood the test of time. You can sing carols with your family and friends to ramp up the holiday joy, or even have a small talent show to see who can come up with the funniest rendition of a Christmas classic! You don’t have to go door to door to enjoy this pagan practice!


Christmas party ideas may be aplenty but for this holiday season, consider taking a more unconventional approach to things! There’s nothing wrong with keeping things traditional, just as there’s nothing bad about going off the beaten path every once in a while. If anything else, it’d make one heck of a Christmas card photo!
