1. One player starts counting with "One". The player on their left counts "Two" and so on around the table. However, a player whose number is a multiple of five (that is, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, etc.) must say "Happy Christmas!" instead of their number.

2. If a player counts the wrong number, says a multiple of five, says "Happy Christmas!" at the wrong time or says "Merry Christmas!" by mistake, they are out of the game.

3. The last player left wins.

Variation: To make the game harder, you may choose to test players' mathematical skills by choosing multiples of 3, 4, 6 or 7 instead of 5.
