Still reeling from the Christmas bad-gift after-shock? Breathe new life into the white elephants you've gotten for the New Year. Re-gift them to someone else (who may even re-gift them later). That's what this left-right story is about: the disillusion of the crazy Christmas gifts you've gotten but aren't sure how to gracefully get rid of.

Hands down, this is our most popular New Years game. There's no more clever way to re-gift those hand-felted leg warmers, chia pets, and croqueted lampshades your crazy cousin from Omaha sent for Christmas!

Now there's a way to re-gift in style. It's the After-Christmas Left-Right game. Each guest brings a wrapped gift they've received from a Christmas past. Then a Left-right story or poem is read aloud. Written into the story are instructions of how the gifts are exchanged.

Guests sit or stand in a circle with their gifts in hand. The left right game contains several instances of the words "left" and "right". Each time players hear these words, they pass their gifts either to the left or right.

You can write your own story or you can use our funny New Year’s themed Left-Right poem.

Here's how the Left-Right poem begins:

It's the day of Christmas and what do you see?
A beautifully wrapped gift LEFT under the tree!

You're so happy, you spring RIGHT out off your seat
To unwrap the gift that's surely a treat!

Of course, what you discover is that your gift in the story is not the jewel you thought it was!

More Laughs Please!

Printable party games are the thoughtful host's best kept secret! A great complement to a lively party game is a laid-back game that creates conversation and of course, big laughs too! After all, it’s the laughter that makes your party memorable.

Our favorite party game to pair with this one is Party Talk. Party Talk consists of witty and funny conversation questions that will strike up the most unexpected answers you could ever think up! Tried and true, they are a party must!

Many people play this New Years game at Christmas parties. See our even more printable Christmas party games where you'll find even more versions of the Left Right Game including the Naughty or Nice Christmas Left Right Game.

Not about New Year's Eve

John - 12/31/2014

I'm very disappointed in your New Year's Eve Right Left Game story. It had nothing to do with New Year's Eve at all.

Management: We've changed the information on this page to be sure our customers know: this poem is a funny expression of the after-Chri...
