We did this at the youth group pre-Christmas celebration. The name of the game is Christmas Carol Synonyms and we got the information from Holiday Ideas for Youth Groups by Wayne Rice and Mike Yaconelli. San Diego: Youth Specialities 1989, pg170. The object is to determine the name of which Christmas Carols are being described by the below sentences. No Carols are repeated, and each sentence describes one carol. Number one has already been done as an example. Be careful, some are tricky. Have fun, and I hope you enjoy.
