Think From The Perspective Of Your Guests
Before deciding on a game, think from your guests' perspective. If you think the game interests you as a guest, then only finalize it. Think about the age of the guests for whom you are designing the game. If it is for small children, keep it as simple as you can. You can introduce some complexities in case of teen and adult games, as this will glue everyone's interest to the game.

It is very important that you choose an appropriate time for games in the party. Games are most enjoyable if they are played at the start of the party before the dinner. It is very important that you choose an appropriate time for games in the party. Don't arrange any game immediately after the dinner as everyone will be too full to participate. There is a suitable time for every game; look out for that time and arrange accordingly. For example, place the icebreaker games at the beginning of the party so that the guests come to know each other through these games. Arrange the games involving activity like "Where are Santa Clothes" etc towards the first part of the party and the mind games like "Christmas charades" at the later part. Give some gap between two games for the people to prepare and get ready. Enjoy the games and make a wonderful Christmas party !
