Family Feud – 2015 Holiday Edition!

Photo Source:

Every year at Christmas, we get together with my husband’s family for a day of food , family and fun.  We always try to come up with a game or activity that can include everyone in our large crew – there’s 19 of us, ranging in age from five to seventy-one.  This year, I thought it would be fun to put together our own version of Family Feud, and I wanted to share the results of the online survey with all of you, in case you are looking for an activity for your own family party, office party, or party of any kind. 

First of all, a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in the online survey yesterday.  I posted the survey questions on my own Facebook wall as well as a couple of private groups I belong to because I didn’t think I would garner enough responses from just one place, and your participation blew me away!  I ended up with way more answers than the standard 100 needed for a Family Feud game, but since you all took the time to respond, I wanted your answers to count.  I included them all, and then used a percentage to come up with the following results. 

A few people asked how I’m planning to set up our game, and I don’t know yet.  I’m going to share a few ideas I’ve found online for anyone considering playing along at home. 

My favorite option, if you have access to a large screen, is to create the game online.  There are several free templates you can use to do this, like this one:

If digital isn’t an option or is just not your thing, here is an option I found on Pinterest for those of you who are gifted in craftiness.

If any of you decide to make your own game boards and share online, let me know and I’ll link them to this post!

Without further adieu, here are the results of the survey.

It’s a Wonderful Life – 14
A Christmas Story – 13
Christmas Vacation – 8

Name a reason a baby might be crying:

If you took part in the survey and you don’t see your answer here, that’s because there were so many answers I only posted the ones with multiple respondents.  Even though I think Settlers of Catan is a vastly superior game to Monopoly and I concur that Nickleback could make a baby cry, unfortunately, these answers didn’t make the cut. 
Again, thank you for participating and I hope that your family and friends have fun with this game!  Happy Holidays!
