Christmas is that time of year when we are all in the mood to celebrate with our loved ones. It’s not about how much money you spend or what presents you give, but rather spending quality time with those who matter most.
This list includes Christmas activities for couples, families, singles and kids – each one designed so that everyone can have a wonderful Christmas no matter their age or situation. So please enjoy this holiday season by giving these ideas a try!
60. Take A Holiday Card Photo
Have each member of the family get into position and then take a photo using your phone. After you have taken the picture, put it on Facebook, Flickr or Twitter – include as many people as possible!
The holiday card can be used for Christmas cards next year!
59. Christmas Movie Marathon
Spend a night watching Christmas movies such as “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Miracle on 34th Street,” and even watch classics like “A Christmas Story.”
These Christmas movies are fun to watch with kids but also provide good humor for adults that may find themselves sitting through them every Christmas season. I always laugh when the old lady is yelling at her television, saying “damn Christian commercials!”
58. A Christmas Carol
This Christmas activity is perfect for the holiday season! Simply put, act out the Christmas Carol in any way you want.
Each person plays a different character – such as the ghost of Christmas present, Christmas past, Christmas future, Scrooge, etc.
Alternatively, just watch A Christmas Carol. There are so many great versions! This is such a classic one of these Christmas activities that it simply must happen every year.
57. Christmas Shopping Spree
Instead of going to just one store this year, find every store in town that sells presents for your loved ones and go shopping all day long.
This Christmas activity is perfect for singles or couples that don’t have kids because you’ll get the Christmas spirit without having to fight over toys!
56. The Elf On The Shelf
Save yourself from Christmas shopping this year – give an elf instead (or buy one online).
The elf can be used as decor for your Christmas tree and also watch over your home – reporting back any good or bad behavior of the children. After Christmas, pack the elf away until Christmas day next year!
55. Christmas Trivia
Before Christmas eve, come up with some Christmas trivia questions – such as “On which date is Christmas?” or “Who wrote the song ‘the Christmas song’?”
Then, during Christmas, either play a game where you have to answer questions correctly to get points (or something similar) or just ask one after dinner. Everyone will enjoy it – even children!
54. Send Soldiers Holiday Cards
Many Christmas cards have Christmas scenes on the front.
On the back of those Christmas cards you can write a message to a specific soldier, such as: “we are praying for you and best wishes this Christmas season.”
You may not know any soldiers but if you go to your local church they may be able to point you in the right direction!
53. Decorate A Gingerbread House
This christmas activity is for christmas parties – so you should invite as many people over as possible. After christmas dinner, break out the christmas cookies and let everyone have a go at decorating your christmas gingerbread house! It really helps if you buy an uncooked cookie kit from somewhere like Bed Bath & Beyond for christmas activities ($$$) because it contains everything you need to make your christmas cookies look great.
52. Drive-In Christmas Movie
The movies christmas season usually starts in november. Instead of going to watch christmas movies during this christmas movie season, why not just play christmas movies on your computer or laptop by using DVDPlayer software (free) while driving around town? If it’s too cold then do it during christmas vacation instead! Make sure that you take some sweets and hot chocolate/coffee with you though – so don’t forget about them when making preparations for this christmas movie idea. Just make sure that if there are any children in your car they are safely strapped
51. Bake Unique Christmas Cookies
When christmas cookie season arrives, why not try out a christmas activity that you’ve never done before? For christmas cookies, buy oatmeal and sugar cookie dough from the store (or make them yourself) and then roll your christmas cookies into christmas shapes. Sandie Cakes has plenty of tutorials on youtube to help you bake some christmas cookies that will even fool Santa Claus himself! Not only are they unique they also taste delicious too.
50. Start A New Family Tradition
Every christmas season, christians around the world will sing christmas songs and hear christmas stories. Instead of doing this every christmas – why not create a new christmas activity for your family like playing christmas games or making christmas crafts? Then you can show off this new christmas tradition to all your friends and relatives!
49. Walk Around Town Christmas Lights
During christmas season there is usually big christmas displays in all towns, city centers and shopping malls with lots of flashing lights. Take some time to walk around town in the dark and just take it all in. If you’re lucky you might even catch Santa Claus leaving presents under the christmas tree at shopping malls!
48. Host A Christmas Craft Party
Every christmas, christian families will make christmas crafts – so why not invite some of your christian friends over to help you with this christmas activity? You can all come up with christmas crafts that are easy and fun for christmas parties or just use store bought decorations as a base. Then when they arrive you can get started on making some christmas crafts!
47. Decorate A Christmas Tree
This christmas activity is best done during the christmas season (no matter what month it falls in) because then everyone who visits your home will enjoy looking at your christmas tree and asking “What’s the story behind these decorations?” or “Why did you put this ornament here?”. Let them know that if they look closely – they will find christmas activities hidden within christmas ornaments and christmas decorations.
46. Read A Story Book About Jesus Birth
There are thousands of christmas story books around – so why not pick one out that you haven’t read yet? Or even better – why not write your own christmas story about christmas! Then, at christmas parties when people ask what christians believe about christmas, share your christian beliefs by telling them all about the book you’ve written! You can also try adapting a famous short story like “The Gift Of The Magi” for christmas with your own christian twist to it.
45. Write Letters To Santa Claus
This christmas activity is best to do during christmas vacation or christmas vacation with the family. Gather up some christmas stationary and a christmas pen or two (or three) in order to write christmas letters to santa claus! Make sure that you include your christian beliefs into this christma activity by writing about how much charity you’ve done recently, good deeds that you’ve recently accomplished or even ask for things like world peace – so Santa knows what’s on your christian mind! If your children are old enough then involve them in this christmas activity too. Remember to post all these letters under the christmas tree before Christmas Eve arrives – because Santa Claus will read these letters when he visits your home on christmas eve!
44. Visit An Ice Bar
This christmas activity is best to do with a partner and includes christmas activities like christmas present exchanges, christmas music playing in the background and christmas drinks. This christma activity is popular in some countries such as Canada where ice bars are common at most shopping malls – but you could also use an ordinary fridge if you don’t want to spend money on your christmas activities!
43. Visit A Christmas Market
These markets appear at least once every christmas season and can usually be found in town centers throughout europe. These markets have lots of different kinds of christmas products including food, crafts, clothing etc. so why not take a stroll through one of these christma markets? You never know what kind of christmassy christmas activities you might find there.
42. Have A Christmas Karaoke Night
Christmas karaoke nights are a christma activity that christians in christian schools and christian student houses etc. love to do because it’s an opportunity to have fun and christms together as christians. You could organize one of these christmas activities with your christian friends at home, or even set up a christmas karaoke night at your local church fellowship group! If you’re not comfortable singing in public then just invite some christian friends over, put on some christmas music (preferably christmas songs), serve some hot chocolate (“Merry Christm-!”) and enjoy the company of other christians!
41. Host A Cookie Exchange Party
Christmas cookie exchanges are christmas activities that christians love to do because it involves christmassy christmas treats, christmas christian desserts and christmas christmassy christma food! The activity is often set up as an innocent game called “The Cookie Exchange Game”. First one person brings a tray of pre-made cookies or biscuits, then each person in the group takes a piece or two before passing it on. This continues until everyone’s had a chance to eat some fresh baked christmas cookies – but if you play this game just make sure that nobody tries to steal any cookies from anyone else! It can work great as part of your meetings for youth groups or other post-church events. If you’re not comfortable with baking

Be sure to take a camera too because taking pictures of these christmas events will make them more memorable.

One of the best Christmas activities is to hang up your stockings on a christmas christmas tree . It’s almost like you’re creating the perfect family scene with a house full of kids running around and parents by the fire, but without all that chaos (and expense)! If you don’t have a real forest then just buy one from IKEA in advance because if there isn’t any trees where you live then they are pretty cheap, or maybe get some artificial ones to save on money? You could also hang them up using ribbon or string instead which might be cheaper but no so pretty.
4. Decorate Your Home For Christmas
Even if you don’t have a christmas tree put up already, it’s not too late to buy one (much cheaper at this time and there are lots of different styles depending on the look that you’re going for).

They even have cards with images of decorations that cost less money than real ones which might save you some money as well.
