Christmas is the feast of the family, so we always said and most Germans also traditionally spend Christmas Eve and with their close family and visit relatives during the Christmas holidays. But at the same time, Christmas is also the festival of love, and not just romantic love, but love in general for all the people who are important to us without being related by blood: Friends.

10 fun ideas for a Christmas party with friends

2. Christmas dinner: Fondue, raclette or buffet
A question of central importance: What will you eat at your Christmas party with friends?? Of course, it depends on how many friends you invite and whether you host the Christmas party at home or you go together to a restaurant (then book in time!). At home you can have a fondue or a raclette evening for smaller groups and if you have a larger number of friends it makes sense to organize a Christmas buffet for which everyone brings something.
3. Mulled wine competition with tasting
If you and your friends like to cook and make your own treats, announce a mulled wine contest in advance on the invitation: everyone should prepare their own mulled wine or punch recipe and bring a bottle of it with them. A label with the name of the friend is attached to each bottle, but in such a way that the name is not immediately readable.
Now you test the mulled wine variants one after the other. It’s best to prepare slips of paper for everyone with the numbers from 1 to 10 and on command everyone shows their score. You write down the numbers, average them and write this number on another label that you stick on the bottle. At the end, in order of ascending scores on one bottle after another, it is revealed who prepared this mulled wine.
Such a tasting you can of course alternatively carry out with homemade Christmas cookies. &
4. Christmas carol karaoke
The perfect program item after an extensive mulled wine tasting, when the tongues are loosened and the mood gets going: Christmas karaoke! Fortunately, you can find a large number of videos about this on YouTube. And there are also CDs for Christmas karaoke to buy.

5. Christmas quiz
Divide your friends into 2 or more small teams and hold a little Christmas quiz. Like in a pub quiz, all teams get a piece of paper with the numbers of the questions, where they should write down their answers. You play the quizmaster and ask a series of questions, z.B. about Christmas traditions worldwide, the Christmas story or just everything around the festival. Make sure to put together a balanced mix of rather easy and harder questions.

If you are lucky enough to live in a region where a white Christmas is not uncommon and where there is already snow at the time of your party, why not plan a little snow hike with your friends as part of the program?. This will invigorate the senses, especially after some mulled wine has already flowed. &
You can also build a snowman or igloo in your backyard or a park, have a snowball fight and let your inner child out.
