Christmas Bits

The players should sit in a circle; each one should choose the name of an object that is around at christmas (for instance, baubles, tinsel, star, christmas cake etc). One person then goes into the centre of the circle with a soft ball. This person then throws the ball at somebody, at the sametime the person in the middler must say the name of the other persons object three times.

The person in the middle must say this very quickly three times before the person holding the ball can say it once. Often the player at whom the ball is thrown is completely bewildered and will not be able to say their object in time. They must then go into the middle. This is a very funny game.
