Balloon Drop 

Fill a cloth with balloons and drop them on the kids by the end of the countdown so that children enjoy running, kicking and catching the balloons. You can also ask kids to write their wishes on paper and drop in the balloons before they are filled. Fill them after that and release them at midnight giving kids the impression that their wishes are being carried on.

Movie Charades

Incorporate scenes and lines from your teenager's favorite movies from the past year into a game called movie charades. Much like the classic game of charades, this one also involves acting out a person, place or thing. Begin by sitting down with your teenager and writing a list of her and her friend's favorite films from the past year. Write down scenes, people or themes from the films onto slips of paper and place them all into a hat. On the night of the party, help your teenager explain the game is played like traditional charades, but the correct answers are from popular films from the past year. Buy copies of your teen's favorite films to hand out as prizes for the winning team or individuals.

Name That Famous Song

Test your teenager and her friend's knowledge of popular music by playing a game called name that famous song. With your teenager's help, write down a list of the most popular songs from the past year. Write down each of these songs on separate slips of paper. During the party, gather all the teenagers in a quiet room and instruct them to each take a piece of paper from the bucket or bowl. Stand the first teenager in front of the room and set 30 seconds on a timer. It's the first teenager's job to hum the song on his slip. Once a teenager in the room successfully guesses the song, stop the clock and write down the time. This is the first contestant's time. The teenager with the best time is the winner.

Countdown Toss

Help the teenagers showcase throwing skills with a quick New Year's countdown game. Set up the teen party game by giving the first player 10 ping pong or tennis balls and having her stand 6 to 10 feet away from a plastic laundry basket. See how many "baskets" she can make while the crowd loudly counts down from 10 to 1. In the event of a tie, tell the finalists to stand farther away from the basket and play again.

Warm Cocoa Toast

Children are aware that a party means eating, drinking and merry making. So they also want to be a part of the midnight toast. You can arrange for hot cocoa in wine glass so that they get the feel of the party. You can also arrange for some soft drinks or even get some shakes so that every child has what he likes for the night.

Midnight Snack Bags

Make bags of snacks that you could hand every child attending the party at midnight. This could be the fake midnight also that you created by mock countdown. Since kids would be dancing and playing till that time, they might get hungry also by that time.

How To Celebrate Christmas In India

Christmas is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is celebrated worldwide on December 25 every year. Christmas day is a gazetted holiday in India. It is celebrated with pomp, gaiety and devotion across the nation.

Celebrations of Christmas are marked by carols, cakes, candles and decoration of Christmas trees. The festival is joyfully celebrated by people of all religions and communities, especially in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai.

Christians attend special church services and many exchange gifts, wear new clothes and decorate their homes. Nowadays, many stores and malls put up Christmas decorations, including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Schools celebrate Christmas by organizing plays which depict the birth of Jesus Christ. Carols, songs and dramas make these celebrations even more joyful. All students including the non-Christian ones enthusiastically participate in such celebrations.

Customs for Christmas celebrations vary across India largely because of the local cultural influence. In South India, for instance, Christians light clay lamps on the rooftops and walls of their houses, the same way as Hindus decorate their homes during the Diwali festival. Besides, in several states of India, people decorate banana or mango tree instead of traditional pine tree. In Mumbai, which has one of the largest Roman Catholic communities in India, there is a tradition to depict nativity scenes and decorate home with big stars.
