We recommend The Christmas Game, if you want take the commercialism out of Christmas. The Christmas Game organizes hundreds of activities into nine different categories:
Most families enjoy Christmas, and recognize the need to make their Christmas celebration less commercial. Many have even tried to alter the gift-giving tradition to de-emphasize presents (for example by drawing names from a hat to determine who gives and who gets).
The Christmas Game helps families preserve traditions that are working well, while making space for new traditions focused on kindness, togetherness, and other non-commercial shared values. Instead of opening presents and then scattering to watch television or play video games, families that play The Christmas Game can strengthen relationships and advance values in ways that are meaningful for each family.
