Happy Birthday Jesus! It’s unlikely that the birth of Jesus took place on the 25th of December but in ancient times, once the Church took over pagen festivals and ‘Christianised’ them the date was set in 354AD. In England Christmas was originally called Yule (mid-winter), the word Christmas (Christ mass) was not used until 11th Century. It was in the 19th Century everything we love about Christmas came to life; Christmas trees, crackers, decorations and of course …Santa Claus. As to why we are so in love with a strange fat man in a red suit who breaks into our house through the chimney, eats our cookies and drinks our milk is a mystery – oh yeah….it might have something to do with the present filled stockings he leaves behind!

Mystery Stocking Game
Place 10 festive items in a Christmas stocking (e.g. shortbread, Christmas cake, baubles etc). Everyone takes a turn at feeling the items from the outside of the stocking and makes note of their guesses. The person with the most correct items wins the stocking full of Christmas goodies!
Divide everyone into teams and provide each team with rolls of toilet paper, piles of hats, scarves and buttons/carrots etc made out of coloured construction paper. Each team must transform one of its members into a snowman. Prizes can be awarded for the grooviest snowman.
