Does your family play Dirty Santa (we call it Dirty Santa…some call it White Elephant)?
Well, you’ve probably never played quite like this! 🙂
This is Christmas Bingo Dirty Santa and it is the most hilarious version you will ever play!
I met my husband in September 17 years ago and he took me to his family Christmas gathering just a few months later. I had no idea what I was getting into! I walked into this small living room packed (I mean, standing room only) with ladies of all ages. There was the biggest pile of presents I had ever seen in the middle of the room.
I was about to learn about a family tradition we’ll call CHRISTMAS BINGO DIRTY SANTA!
Here’s how it works:
- Everyone brings a wrapped gift (you can set a $ limit) and places it in the pile
- Each guest is given a bingo card when they arrive
- You play bingo as you normally would and when someone yells BINGO, they get to choose a gift from the pile (there may be several people that get BINGO at once…this is fine)
- You continue on until all presents are gone (there is no stealing in this version but feel free to change it up)
BUT there’s a catch!
Years and years ago, someone decided to add a little twist…This pair of giant panties!! 🙂 Now, I am assuming someone made these because I’m telling you they are HUGE!
That’s my little girl from several years ago. Ha! I love the look on her face!
Each year, they get wrapped inconspicuously just like the rest of the gifts and one
cursed lucky guest gets to open this masterpiece, put them on, and pose for a photo!
It doesn’t stop there though. Once you open the panties, you are now the proud owner for the following year and it’s your job to add to them (think pieces of flair 😉 ). It can be anything from ribbon, lights, tinsel, foam cutouts, words…someone even added some suspenders to these!
The next year, you bring them to the party, but try not to let anyone see which package it is (if they can remember who even got them the year before. We never do!)
And the tradition continues! It is the most fun I’ve ever had at a Christmas party!
What do you think?
Could you imagine playing CHRISTMAS BINGO DIRTY SANTA with your grandmother or great-grandmother?
