This holiday challenge your family, friends and your loved ones to a few good-natured Christmas games of trivia.
Christmas Trivia Game Rules
Use our Trivia Questions and Answers to play a trivia game.
The easiest way to play is to divide your group into pairs or teams of three or more players. Have one person designated to call out questions. The caller can either ask a question letting teams or pairs take turns answering or call out a question and let the first person to respond answer.
If you have a small group and people are playing individually, you can give each person a question in turn. Every right answer gets a point.
