These Christmas trivia questions are fun for all the family

My recommendation? Gather everyone around the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve, choose someone to play quizmaster, print out the two fun Christmas picture rounds and then divide your guests into teams. If you’d rather not read the questions out, you can download quiz sheets at the bottom of this post.

You could make it girls vs boys, grown ups vs kids or if there’s one member of the family who thinks they’re a brainiac, pit everyone against them! 

If you’re hosting a get together with friends (either virtually or in person!) these Christmas quiz questions will provide the entertainment for your evening. Don’t forget to pop some Christmas music on, belt out a few carols and enjoy your fave festive tipple too.

Right now though, let’s get festive with these Christmas trivia questions! Ho ho Ho!
