Q:

How do you play the "Right and Left Rudolph" game?

A:

The "Right and Left Rudolph" game is a Christmas activity where participants exchange gifts. Each participant brings a gift and sits in a circle. A leader then sings a version of the "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" in which the lyrics incorporate the words "left" and "right." At hearing the respective word, participants continuously pass gifts in that direction until they hear the next word, switching directions. At the end of the song, the participants keep the gift they are currently holding.

  1. Print off the lyrics

    There are many different versions of the lyrics online, each incorporating "left" and "right" differently. Print out the lyrics that you prefer.

  2. Gather participants and their gifts

    Invite a group of participants to play, and ask each to bring a gift. If you would like, ask them to bring gifts of equal value to ensure that no person receives a better present than anyone else, which could be a problem if the participants are children.

  3. Explain the rules, sing from the sheet and play the game

    Before you begin, explain the rules to the participants. Sing the printed lyrics to the tune of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," having the participants pass the gifts at the rhythm of the song. At the end of the song, have the participants open their gifts, ending the game.
