Emotional Scene Improv Theatre Game for Christmas Party or Family Gathering

This theatre game is called "Emotional Scene." Act out a scene such as "The Night Before Christmas" but the actors must act it out with an assigned emotion.

The emotional scene can be written on cards that the actors draw from or the audience can call out an emotion:
sad
happy 
angry
scared
disgusted
surprised
love
confused
sarcastic

With the selected emotion they can recite the following scene:
"When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer.
With a little old driver so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled and shouted and called them by name—
'Now, Dasher! Now, Dancer! Now, Prancer! Now, Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Dunder and Blixen!
To the top of the porch, to the top of the wall!
Now, dash away! Dash away! Dash away! All!'"
