“Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!”
Did you miss this Christmas song?
Well, I did!
And I’m extremely happy that I can sing this song again. Because, ta-da, it’s Christmas, honey!
Did I tell you how I literally wait for the holiday season the entire year?
I LOVE the month of December. And I have got my reasons. This is the time when I gave birth to my first and only child, which calls for a HUGE celebration. And, of course, it is Christmas, the time for parties, fun, and good food.
Our family deserves our time, you know. But if you are somehow unable to give them that because of your work pressure or anything else, Christmas is the time to make it up to them.
So, how about making the days of your family and friends a bit brighter this Christmas?
Spend as much time as you can with them. And when it comes to having a fun time, I have just what you need.
Play the game of Christmas this or that questions. And don’t worry about the questions. You have landed on the right page.
Here I have come up with the most entertaining Christmas this or that questions that you can ask your family, friends, and kids. Because you know, your kids are the ones who want to enjoy the most during the holidays. So, why not become the best mommy or daddy to them?

How To Play the Game of Christmas This or That Questions?
The game of this or that questions is easy to play. All you need are some questions that you are going to ask and some people whom you are going to ask those questions.
But tell me, do you want to make the game more interesting?
Then I have just what you need! Here I have added more variations of how you can play this supremely interesting game. Read on.
- This is the most common way how people play the game of this and that.
Make all the participants sit in the room and make all your questions ready. You can keep the questions printed on paper and put them inside a bowl.
If you are the one who is going to ask the first question, choose any one question randomly from the bowl and ask all the participants the same question. Listen to their answers.
Do you have many participants in the game?
Then you can pick one question and choose one person to answer that. When you hear their answer, they will ask the next question to a random person. And this continues until everyone playing the game has their turn to ask questions and give answers.
This is perfect for playing at kids’ classroom parties or your virtual Christmas office party or call. Also, this works great as a family activity where you have both kids and adults.
If you want to stretch the game, you can ask the players to give their reasons for choosing one of the two options they were given.
So, what happens is that when you ask a question to someone by giving them two options, they choose one option and then explain why they have chosen that option.
Doing so will make this Christmas game more interesting and fun.
- You know that the game of this or that doesn’t have any winners, right? But do you want to make it competitive so that when the game ends, you have a winner?
I have done the hard work for you. All you need is to follow this gameplay.
So, tell me, how many people are you playing this game with? Because, in order to follow this gameplay, you need to be in even numbers. Why? Because you are going to play in pairs.
Sounds interesting already?
I know. This is my favorite variation of this game too!
Start by sitting in pairs. You can choose your pair or whom you want to partner with. Know that you have to answer on the spot.
Meaning if you are in a pair and some other pair asks you a Christmas this or that question, both you and your partner will have to answer on the count of three.
If both of you give the same answer, you get the point. But if your answers don’t match, you don’t get any points. Each pair will take turns asking questions and giving answers.
Do you know what the funny thing about this gameplay is?
The individuals in each pair try to guess what the other person is going to answer, and they end up not matching each other’s answers!
The pair that gets the highest number of points wins.
- Here is another way you can play the game of this or that. And this is equally interesting as the previous one.
In order to start this game, each one of you should have a pen and a piece of paper.
If you are the one asking the question, once you ask a question, each player will have to write the answer on the paper given to them.
Here the catch is that they have to guess what the majority of players are going to answer and then write the answer accordingly.
When they finish writing their answers, they will have to turn on the piece of paper and show the answer they have written on it.
If their answer is what the majority of the players have written, they will get one point.
This game can continue as long as you want. The winner is the one with the highest points at the end of the game.
When to Play the Game of Christmas This or That?
This or that game is extremely fun to play, and it works as the perfect ice-breaker too. You can play the Christmas edition of this lighthearted game on many occasions. Some of them are –
- At the airport, when you are flying somewhere to celebrate Christmas
- On a long drive during the holidays

- During your Christmas family dinner
- As part of your celebration on the Christmas eve
- During any Christmas party

What Are the Benefits of Playing This or That Questions for Your Kids?
The game of this or that questions is really exciting. People of all ages find this game to be fun. As you already know, how great it is a conversation starter too. Right?
But do you know that “this or that” questions can also help your kids in other ways?
That is what I’m going to discuss in this section. Keep reading.
- It gives the critical thinking of your kids a huge boost. This or that questions are open-ended, which means they give your kids the opportunity to think. And it is then that they come up with their preferable answers.
When you ask a kid this or that question, they use their problem-solving and analytical abilities. Also, they use the gifts of self-regulation and open-mindedness.
- Your kid learns how they can form their own opinions. When you ask them this or that question, they are actually given a choice. They can think and then select what they prefer instead of choosing what other people prefer.
This, in a way, enables them to pick a side and then take a firm stand for it. And they carry this learning throughout their lives.
When you ask your kid this or that questions, they think outside of the box. Also, they learn to voice their opinions without any fear. And while they do so, they listen to other people’s perspectives as well.
Why Are Christmas Traditions Important for Your Kids?
What Christmas tradition do you have in your family?
Do you eat a specific meal such as breakfast, lunch, or dinner together? Do you sit together and watch back-to-back Christmas songs? Do you play the game of Christmas karaoke songs? Do you play games such as charades, puzzles, and this or that questions with your family members?
When it comes to Christmas traditions, it varies from family to family.
In our family, we play fun games that don’t have any winners, so there is no competition, and all we can think of is having pure fun. And not to mention the quality time that we get to spend with each other. That is the best time we can have together!
And one of many such games, the Christmas version of this or that questions, is my favorite. What I like the most about this game is that there is no age restriction to this game. Kids and older family members can play and have fun too.
Now, Christmas traditions are especially important for your kid. When they grow, the memories of these traditions are something that they cherish forever.
This gives them a sense of belonging. They understand how important family bond is. And they become the person that they have always admired as a kid. They become your younger version.
Kids learn what they see. Isn’t it?
And when they see a fun-filled, loving, and warm atmosphere during Christmas, they try to bring the same vibe when they become adults. They carry those traditions forward that they have seen growing up all these years.
Your kid becomes social and always has a positive attitude. Isn’t that something you want?
Christmas is about a lot of things, but there is one thing common in all those things, and that is, having fun.
Whether you follow the Christmas tradition that your family has followed for years or start a new tradition, the main intention you have here is to spend the best time with your family. Right?
And Christmas, this or that questions serve this purpose really well!
So, did you like the question suggestions I mentioned above? Did you find them funny?
