Christmas is a busy time where we often celebrate coming together as an extended family. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not a great opportunity to connect with each other as a couple.

These Christmas questions to ask your spouse are a fun activity to take your mind off your to-do list.

(You could even ask them while celebrating Christmas in July).

They’re also great questions to ask someone you don’t know well, like your younger sister’s new boyfriend, should you be stuck next to them at Christmas dinner!
