Christmas Movie Trivia Game

Challenge your friends and family, while brushing up on your Holiday Movies with this Christmas movie trivia game.

Play some fun Christmas party games at your holiday bash this year! This game is a great option for anyone looking for some fun Christmas games for kids, that are also great for adults!

Create a series of Christmas movie trivia questions on 4x6 index cards. Pass them to guests as they enter the house, and collect them mid-party to tally up scores and give the winner a special Christmas prize.

For younger kids, check out this festive (and free!) printable Christmas movie trivia game.

For older guests, use our Top 20 Christmas Movies Slideshow to help you create some wonderful trivia questions. Using commonly watched movies will ensure that the questions are not too hard and everyone can have fun racking their brains for the answers!  Below, we have some trivia question ideas and basic rules for game play, but feel free to simply use these ideas as suggestions and create your own cheerful game!


Considering everyone has a different way of playing games or your party might have a large amount of guests, you might have to alter our game directions to suit your gathering. Simply use these guidelines as a suggestion, if your party calls for something a little different!

Create Teams

First divide your group in teams. If you have a small group consider having everyone play individually or in pairs.

Ask the Question

You can either let your guests choose if they want an easy, medium or hard question or they can simply draw from a deck.

Create a scoring system

You could have 3 types of questions: easy: medium: hard. For every question answered correctly, award 1, 2 or 3 points respectively. An additional scoring technique would be to penalize or take away a point for incorrect answers-just make sure it's all done in the name of fun. No Scrooges allowed at this party!


Guess Who?

This list of beloved Christmas movies includes a wide variety of animated movies. For your trivia game ask your contestants to guess who supplied the voices for some of the most memorable characters of all time!

Who said what?

These movies are so memorable, because they have such wonderful quotes. Ask your guests to correctly identify which movie a particular quote comes from. Make the game a little more challenging, by asking them to name the character who uttered the famous quote.

Setting the Scene!

Another category of questions could ask your participants to name the setting of the movie. Many of these movies take place in New York City, but others are set in smaller cities an towns. Test your guests' geographical-movie knowledge!

Perfect Time of Year!

Ask your guests to correctly state the year in which the movies on our list were made. While some of these movies are relatively easy to guess, there are plenty of older movies that will have your guests scratching their heads!

Don't forget, you can't watch movies without popcorn! For a holiday-themed treat, check out the Christmas Tins collection on The Popcorn Factory. Enter the code MOVIE15 for 15% your order!
