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!
After all, Halloween is all about the scares, gore, and spooky creatures. I could totally understand why this would scare a child. So, as a huge fan of movies, I always think a movie night is the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit. However, watching kid cartoons can be rather boring for you.
To make it easier for my readers who are parents, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite Halloween movies that are kid- and adult-friendly as well as provide a list of movies that I think could work. You can find that list at the bottom of the page! Let's get started!
After hearing a ton of scary sounds, Zach breaks into Hannah's house and finds original copies of R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" series. But when they open the book to check it out, they unleash Stine's imaginative monsters. Will they return the masters to their books? Watch to find out!
THE HAUNTED MANSION (2003)

He runs away and finds a contest, but he doesn't have a guitar. So, he breaks into de la Cruz' mausoleum and steels his guitar to compete. But, he quickly finds that he has been transported out of the Land of the Living and into the after life. He then goes on a quest to find de la Cruz, get his blessing, and return to the Land of the Living!
