Fun, affordable and full of great words, this Semantic Field of Christmas Word Search is a great way to revise over the holidays!
This semantic field is an important one to learn. Lots of English students have to read A Christmas Carol at some point in their lives. You can bet that there are loads of words related to Christmas in that book! Even if Scrooge starts off hating this great holiday!
Plus, lots of people use the idea of Christmas to talk about something that makes them happy! Think about the saying “Christmas came early this year”. People use it when they feel like something great has happened to them! Writers are usually a little bit more subtle with their own words, though. So, they might use words in the semantic field of Christmas to give you this idea instead!
This word search will help you to brush up on the words you might associate with Christmas. There are no clues. So, you have to think of them all by yourself before you find them in the word search! That will get your mind on the right track. You’ll have the independence to find words in the semantic field of Christmas in no time!
This word search has 22 official terms. Don’t let that limit you, though! There are loads of other words that fit into this semantic field! If you think of any more when you’re filling it in, make sure to write them down and keep them safe!
