Christmas is a time that we often get together with our extended families and that can cause a few tensions to rise.

This is the time of year where we start thinking about resolutions – a lot of which involve getting fit or starting a new exercise routine but who wants to do that when it’s freezing outside?

When you’re not fighting over who is going to have the last roast potato or trying to stop your Uncle falling asleep in the Christmas pudding how about holding a fun Christmas themed quiz to keep the folks entertained?
A 50 question Christmas quiz has a selection of categories that will appeal across all age groups, the Radio Times has a selection of TV, Film and Music Christmas themed questions and this bumper pick of 100 Festive Trivia Questions with Answers will keep you all occupied for a while – no cheating though!
Watch A Festive Film
If you’re looking for something to help you get into the Christmas spirit then Vulture has a list of The 18 Best Christmas Movies Streaming Right Now and the British Film Institute (BFI) have compiled a list of 50 great Christmas films currently streaming although I personally wouldn’t consider “Brazil” a Christmas movie even if there are a few Christmas trees dotted around here and there.
