Christmas Movie Trivia

Who’s ready for some Christmas fun? Me! We all love Christmas time and the extra time we get to be with family. Having Christmas games to play makes that extra family time even better.

Christmas movie trivia is a great game to play as a family. You can split into teams or just go around the room answering questions. Or even to pass time in the car. You really can’t go wrong with these fun trivia questions.

Why Trivia is a Great Family Activity

Trivia games are a great family activity. If played in a fun environment it can help strengthen family relationships. Be sure to not get too competitive where family members don’t want to play anymore. Encourage one another and help each other out.

Showing how to encourage one another by example is a great way to spend time with your kids. They learn that life isn’t always about winning or losing but about opportunities to help someone else.

Learning new skills while playing a game is always a plus in my book!

How to Play Christmas Movie Trivia

With these trivia questions already ready for you, you don’t need much to start playing.

First, print out these Christmas movie trivia questions. Decide if you want to be on teams or not.

If playing on teams have one person from team A read the question to team B. Anyone on team B can answer the question.

If not playing on teams have the person to your right read the questions to you.

Set a 1-minute timer and start asking questions. If you choose to keep score, simply give a point for every question that you get right.
