Holiday Party

Below are a few of the games we play while we DJ and MC a holiday party (Halloween, Christmas, Hanukkah, Etc.)


Santa’s Beard

This is a relay game, have your DJ get 2 teams of about 5 people. Have them make team names so the DJ can make play-by-play announcements.

You’ll need Vaseline and a bowl of cotton balls. Have each member apply Vaseline to their chins and have one person from each team run to the bowls of cotton balls, and attach a minimum or 10 cotton balls to their chin. They then run back and allow their next team member to go to the cotton ball bowl.

The first team with every member to have a beard wins.

A variation can include a rule that they can’t use their hands to attach the cotton balls.

Find Your Partner

Before the party, take Wire Garland and cut them into two pieces of various lengths. Be sure that you have two of every length! When the guests arrive, their objective is to find the other person at the party that has the same length piece of garland. When it comes time for a gift exchange, the pairs give their gifts to each other!


Hanukkah Anagrams

Good to play during dinner, give everybody pen and paper and then give them a word related to the holiday: anything from the word Hanukkah to dreidel or Menorah. Instruct players to create as many words as possible using only the letters from that specific word. The winner is the person or group with the larger number of words. Your MC can announce the winners after dinner.

Musical Chairs

Have the DJ play traditional songs while guests dance around the chairs, of course one chair fewer than the number of guests, the DJ will stop the song intermittently, the last person standing is eliminated. Repeat until you have a winner!


Costume Contest

A fun easy way to get a crowd involved is to plan a costume contest, just have some prizes planned out for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and pick a couple secret judges. Have the judges tell your DJ who the winners are about half way through the night, and we’ll announce the winners and prizes. This is a great way to make sure everyone’s dressed up.


This really works for any party, have your DJ announce certain words throughout the night that aren’t allowed to be said (candy, punch, etc.) , have a punishment for saying the word(s), something like the person who gets caught has to take drink orders for the people that heard him or her say the restricted words.
