Bingo is a very popular game played especially in America. To play the game, the players should have bingo cards and markers. Usually, bingo cards have 25 random numbers with the word BINGO on top of it. The caller will draw a ball and announce the combination of the letter and numbers. For example, if the caller announces B17 then you should try to find it on your cards. If your card contains the combination, mark it. The player who gets a pattern other vertically, horizontally, or diagonally should say Bingo! to announce that they win that round.
Christmas bingo is a little bit different than the usual bingo game. Instead of using the combination of letters and numbers, Christmas bingo games have fun Christmas ornaments, Christmas characters, and other Christmas related illustrations on them. To play the game, usually, the player draws cards instead of balls. It’s good to do this activity to spend family time with your kids. Especially if you have to stay inside during Christmas this year.
