So something I try to do each year is run a Sharp Practice game set in a winter setting with a seasonal theme. To get the right festive spirit going I ask a multiple choice question between phases. The winner(s) get a Command Chip that they can use in the next phase. Questions this year related to Hogmanay and French Canadian Holiday traditions since it was a game set in Canada in the winter of 1759-60 after the forces of Montcalm took Quebec.
We had an out of town quest, Garrett, who brought his well behaved 6 year old son. He and William were the Highlanders and Peter and John the Canadians and Hurons.

Great looking game. It even looks like it's cold out.
