I want to celebrate Christmas in July with some friends. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions on some games we could play that would fit the theme.

I love Christmas theme games, though there does not seem to be a lot of them. I do own a few.

Letters to Santa is a fun version of Love Letter where you are trying to get letters to Santa while Krampus is out to destroy your fun. The game plays fast. The artwork is cute. A great family game to enjoy...even in July.

This is a great map designed for 2-3 players. Love the snowy look to it. Also nice to have a lot of tension on the map when you only have a few people to play with.

At first glance this zombie apocalypse game may not seem a Christmas game. It is set in the "dead of winter". One of the playable characters is a mall Santa. A few crossroad cards mention Santa or celebrating Christmas.

This one works for both Christmas, Halloween, and even Easter. Based on the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, this game has awesome artwork, dark humor, and characters from the movie. If you are a fan of the movie, I recommend picking up this version of Munchkin.

The Munchkin series actually contains a number of booster packs that are Christmas themed. Occasionally they collected them into a larger release. I bought this one. It included a cool dice and a Christmas-themed Kill-O-Meter to keep up with your heath point.
