In December each year, Christmas holiday parties are everywhere from work to school and family. The 1980s provides a great chance to offer a different twist. It is not too dififcult to organise an 80s Christmas party, particularly since most Christmas decorations are already brightly coloured. How much extra effort you want to go to will depend on the event but it can start with a few simple 980s Christmas songs, some decorations and some 80s toys. You can even have an evening with the family watching 80s movies with Christmas themes. Here's how to get started

There are many songs to feature from Do they know it's Christmas (Feed the World), Last Christmas to 80s cover versions of many popular Christmas carols and songs. Alternatively, you can pick a year and do a Top 40 countdown. See The 80s Top 40 list by year.

80s Christmas Movies

Die Hard, Gremlins, The Meaning of Life are movies not about Christmas, but they embrace the theme. Plus they are not your traditional bland fare. Other options include Trading Places, Better Off Dead. For a stronger Christmas theme, try A Christmas Vacation, Santa Claus The Movie (warning - this movie is quite lame despite starring Dudley Moore and John Lithgow), Blackadders Christmas Carol, Silent Night, Deadly Night and Scrooged.
