ESL Christmas Vocabulary and Games

It's important to know and understand Christmas vocabulary if you want to about some of the symbols and traditions of Christmas. 

Understanding some of the most common vocabulary will also help you enjoy the Christmas carols you listen to and sing along to during the holidays.

Here are a few vocabulary flashcards, quizzes, games and activities to help you learn and remember some of the important Chrismas words you should know. 

This first item is actually a reading, but it is an interesting one that I hope you will enjoy.

  • Mistletoe, the kiss of Christmas
    "It's a vintage year for the legendary mistletoe berries...
    In Britain’s mistletoe-growing regions, a branch would be brought inside at Christmas to protect the house. Any woman walking underneath
    could not refuse to be kissed, or she would remain an old maid. After a kiss, she would pick a berry from the branch."

Easy Quizzes 


Come back tomorrow for more Christmas songs, vocabulary, videos, readings, games and other activities. 

Share the love !
