As you're reading this, I will be enjoying a Christmas holiday with my family, so I decided that I would just go ahead and write about what my friends and coworkers got me for Christmas this year. I may do another blog post or maybe a YouTube video that contains what I got for Christmas from my family. Anyway, let's get to it!
WHITE ELEPHANT GIFT EXCHANGE
GIFTS FROM COWORKERS
I am blessed to have many thoughtful coworkers. The first gift I got was a box of cookies. He gave them to me a week prior than everyone else gave things because he was going out of town for the rest of the week. They were really good, and he even sneaked some chocolate into the box as well!
MY BEST FRIEND
The Nightmare Before Christmas
"Like Jack Skellington, you are very curious about the world and seek adventure."
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
"Like the Grinch, maybe you are a bit misunderstood, and maybe a bit of a mischief maker, but underneath that tough exterior is a big heart!"
"Your intentions are good, but sometimes you miss the mark by just a little. You know, like that turtleneck you gave as a present last year."
Frosty the Snowman
"You're a jolly, happy soul. The point is, you're full of cheer and just live for the holiday season!"
GABBIE & JONATHAN
Holly Jolly Christmas
"You believe Christmas should be about having fun with family and friends. You like cutting loose around the holidays and even getting a little silly now and then. You are all about the Christmas spirit!"
"You are one of the warmest people we know. You're also all about making your friends and family feel comfortable, cozy, and relaxes -- which is probably what makes you great at throwing memorable parties."
"People are drawn to your bubbly, bright personality. You've got tons of energy and are full of life and love. Stay classy."
Today's blogmas post is all about music, so I'll only be sharing the YouTube video of the song and its title. I hope you enjoy. Feel free to add these videos to a playlist that you can have running at your get-together or just in the background while you're working.
STUCK IN THE SMOKE HOLE OF OUR TIPI
This game goes by many names, but I know it as a White Elephant game. Each person brings a wrapped gift. Each gift should cost the same, so set a price limit. The common limit is $5 to $10. Tear up pieces of paper and number them to reflect the number of participants. Each person will draw a number. The person with the lowest number goes first. They choose from the pile of gifts.

3. A CHRISTMAS SPIN ON POPULAR GAMES
No matter if it is charades, Pictionary, or another classic game. You can put a Christmas spin on it and make it work for your Christmas party. The favorite idea I saw was doing a Family Feud Christmas game where you would divide your family and have them answer Christmas-themed Family Feud questions! Winning team gets a prize!
4. CHRISTMAS-THEMED TRIVIA
I LOVE this idea and think that I've suggested it before. It is so customizable! I use a site called Kahoot to create free trivia quizzes. I do this mainly for office parties, and it is always a hit. The best part about it is that people can join by using the web browser on their smartphone or tablet! All you need is connection to the internet, and HDMI cable, and a laptop or computer to hook up to your TV. Winner gets a prize!
