Party Fun for New Years Eve (or Any Night)!
Up until now we have not featured either karaoke or a lip-sync duel as a “go to” party activity mostly because I really, really do not like to perform. In fact, I think my husband's biggest fear is traveling to Korea on business and being dragged into a Karaoke club.
Having said all that, we love this Jimmy Fallon lip-sync duel and have to say, dueling karaoke does look like great fun. I can now definitely see this as a New Years Eve or late night party activity as good as, or maybe even better than, charades. Adding a lip-sync duel to your list of party games will appeal to guests of all ages! Choose your playlist based on your guest list. For example, if you are having lots of children, think about including some songs from Frozen. If your party is for adults only, it might be fine to include songs with lyrics that may not be as appropriate if children were present.
What you need:
- Memorex MKS-SS2 SingStand 2 Home Karaoke System or any singing machine or karaoke machine with a microphone. (We just checked and you can still get this delivered to your front door before your New Year's Eve celebration begins!)
- A diverse playlist
- A great group of guests wanting and willing to party – in other words well versed in party etiquette!
Celebrate the Season with Printable Holiday Games!
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren’t going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That’s where these printable holiday games come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own holiday party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours during long holiday gatherings.

We love Thanksgiving. It not only brings together family far and near but when done well, Thanksgiving is a leisurely day of game playing and game watching, cooking and eating, and we usually throw in an early morning walk for charity so we don't feel quite so decadent. Last year we planned our extended family vacation. This year, we will most likely plan Popol's 80th birthday celebration but in between, as always, Izzy and Ali will get together to decide which of the many printable Thanksgiving games we will play this year.
