Enlist your family and/or friends to help come up with a list of fun and favorite Christmas songs. And I'm not referring to Carols or Hymns, save those gems for caroling. I mean songs like All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree by Lee "Scratch" Perry, White Christmas by Bing Crosby, or even a fun duet like, Baby It's Cold Outside by Dean Martin. You get the picture. You can have your guests sign an old Christmas record as your guest book, and make fun trophies out of little wooden instruments.

3. Christmas Movie Trivia Game Party

Here are 40 Christmas movie trivia questions to get the party going. Winner takes home a basket of several of popular Christmas movie DVDs.

4. Reverse Christmas Party in July


Are you a bit tired of the same old Christmas party this year? Why not throw a reverse Christmas in July party? Tell your guests to wear their best Hawaiian shirt or beach attire, including their flip flops. Drinks for the party would of course be pina coladas and these cute reverse Christmas in July cookies.

5. Christmas Cookie Exchange Party

Who doesn't love a good Christmas cookie? For this party, your guests must bring a dozen of their favorite, creative, or unique Christmas cookies, (which are also required to be delicious!) Have them also bring recipe cards for their cookies, (that's right no store bought,) to share with everyone. Then send everyone around a table of the cookies with cute little Christmas bags to get one from each plate. Of course guests are encouraged to try any cookies they want, and take the rest home.
