We had our annual Christmas party with our adult Sunday School class on the 5th. As the host and hostess, Beth and I had to come up with some activities. Last year, we did the Christmas Song Quiz which was quite fun. This year, it was Christmas Carol Pictionary. I looked online to see if anyone had posted something printable. There's a version of it for $7.00 here, but I was unwilling to plop down any money for an hour long game I'd only be able to play once. So, I got a list of songs by browsing the web, put the list in my most favorite text editor - TextPad, and recorded a macro to generate a three-column HTML table from the list that I could use for Pictionary cards. I printed the result to PDF using CutePDF writer, and printed the cards and cut them up with a paper cutter. The whole thing took me less than 1/2 and hour and saved me $7.00. Though I'm sure that the official game has some topics outside of carols, I thought they'd probably all be too easy. I'm sharing the results for you to enjoy at your Christmas party. Information wants to be free. Happy Holidays!
