Christmas pictionary word list

Merry Christmas! Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday. Last night was Christmas decorating and hot chocolate drinking night at our house. Now we have a tree up and everything!

So another holiday, time for another word list! Here’s a printable list of Christmas words you can use to play pictionary, charades, catchphrase, or another game. And as a bonus, there’s also a printable list of Christmas song titles you could use to play name that tune. Just take turns drawing a song title, singing or humming the song, and getting others to guess. Or, if you’re up for a challenge, play Christmas song title pictionary. I dare you. (I tried to stick to well-known Christmas songs…and resisted the temptation to add “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays,” the hit Christmas song from *NSYNC. Oh, yeah.)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the holidays and have fun with family and friends! This time of year can be so crazy and hectic, but I really think it should be about remembering our blessings, focusing on the real meaning of Christmas, making others happy, and spending time with those we love. Hope I can help!

And merry Christmas!
