Christmas bingo is a great way of spreading the holiday cheer and combining the festive
celebrations with your favorite game.

Christmas bingo can be played as a land-based game or online. In land-based bingo games
special cards are made that have Christmas symbols, or traditional numbers for players to bingo
on which is a variation of the usual game. The pictures on the special Christmas game cards can
be symbols of holiday related things like Christmas trees, holly berries, nativity scenes,
snowflakes and such. They could also feature words relating to the holiday, such as Christmas,
snow, jingle bells and so on. The aim of the game is still to cross off items as they are called, and
the winner of the game is the player who has marked off either all items on their card, or five
items in a row (down, across and diagonally).

Another festive variation of Christmas bingo is traditional number bingo, but instead of calling
Bingo when a player wins bingo, the winner calls Santa or Merry Christmas. The games using
special holiday cards can also be played with this variation.

Many people host special Christmas bingo parties every year. These are really simple to arrange,
and it is a cost effective and entertaining way to celebrate the holidays. All that is needed is some
cards, which can either be purchased, printed from the internet or handmade, daubers or markers,
bingo balls or pictures correlating to the bingo card pictures and a sense of fun. Players can
decide which type of game they wish to play, and the fun can then begin. Prizes can be wrapped
presents, or candy canes and other treats.

Many online games have special Christmas bingo specials and games run over the holiday. Some
sites have promotions and special games that are run over the 12 Days of Christmas. Players are
given extra chances to win, and there is also a very festive atmosphere on the site and in the chat.
Many sites have special Christmas related patterns on their games, and chat games are also often
themed to the holiday.

Christmas bingo is a great way for bingo lovers to start the festive season on a positive note by
playing their favorite game. Whether you are playing a game at your local hall, hosting your own
Christmas bingo party, or playing at your chosen site, you will be guaranteed to have a festive,
fun time.
