Icebreakers: Christmas Back to Back This game humorously demonstrates the fact that many Christmas traditions have become distorted over time.

Materials A variety of simple Christmas images. (e.g. Christmas Tree, a manger, a baby, etc) You can also use simple greeting cards for the design.

Activity • Form teams of six people. • Instruct each team to sit in a line, one person behind another, and take a vow of silence for the duration of the game. • Give the first person in each line a pencil and a piece of paper. • Then show the last person in each line a simple image of a Christmas object.

• That person must use his or her finger to draw the object on the back of the person in front of him or her. • This continues until the drawing reaches the first person in line. • He or she must draw it on the piece of paper.

• Have judges determine which team’s picture closest resembles the original picture. • If time permits, play more rounds, letting team members change positions if they wish.

Application Things get distorted the farther we get from the source, especially when we have our backs turned on God.
