T’is the season for Christmas fun! Many places are decorated for the holidays, Christmas music is on the radio, and if you’re like me, your Netflix queue is full of great Christmas movies. Christmas cookies are in the oven, and it’s time to have some great fun with your family.
My family loves to play games during the holidays. We love to play games with each other, the kids in our family, and even with our dogs! So whether we’re playing fetch or Battleship, or even some fun-loving contests, we’re having a blast at Christmas time.
After Christmas dinner, which really happens at lunch time at our house, but we call it dinner anyway, we like to play games with our dogs. We call this “Dog Christmas” and it’s probably our favorite Christmas tradition. Our dogs get a new toy in their stocking, and then we time them to see how long it takes them to remove the squeaker. It doesn’t take very long – usually only a few minutes.
So the dogs go crazy; they wear themselves out, and that means naps for them, and game time for us! We can enjoy our gaming time once they are snoring. Whether we’re playing a classic like Monopoly or Pictionary or a strategy game, we love spending time together playing our games during Christmas vacation.
Stick around until the end of the post to find a fun Christmas Classic Game Kit giveaway!

For example, did you know that the first Christmas cards were sent in 1843 and only cost a penny to mail? I didn’t realize that. Can you imagine buying a stamp for only a penny? I sure can’t!
