A small tree is placed on a table. The candles are lighted. Blindfold
the players, one at a time, turn around three times, and allow each to
take five steps toward the tree. Then he must blow as hard as he can,
endeavoring to blow out all the lights, if possible. The one who
succeeds in extinguishing the most receives a prize.

Another amusement is playing "The night before Christmas" like
"Stagecoach." Give each child the name of some part of Santa Claus'
outfit, the sleigh, the reindeer, etc. The hostess then reads the
well-known story, "The Night Before Christmas." As she mentions the
names, the players having them, rise, turn around, and sit down
again. When she mentions Santa Claus, all change places, and she tries
to secure a seat. The one left out continues the story, and so on,
until completed.
