Christmas is all about spending time with your family but what if we can’t? This year was such a rollercoaster ride for everyone but does that mean we will let our Christmas spirit dwindle? We don’t think so! We just need to get creative and resourceful on how we can still make memories with our loved ones while adapting to the new normal.
1.) Holiday Movie Night
Miss going out to watch movies at the cinema? Recreate the same cinematic experience at the comfort of your home. Line up your all-time favorite Christmas movies for you and your family to enjoy. Some recommendations are the Home Alone series, The Christmas Chronicles, and The Grinch. You can even prepare cinema snacks like popcorn and chips.
2.) Set-up a Virtual Christmas party
The saying “The more the merrier” may not be applicable this year since inviting your friends and having a Christmas gathering can put all of you at risk. Thanks to today’s technology, it’s possible to have a Virtual Christmas party. Make it fun by preparing engaging games as well.
3.) Keep it intimate
You can still have your friends or family over but make sure to limit it to 10 people and practice social distancing partnered with continuous sanitation. Aside from bonding over good food, make your gathering extra festive by making a Christmas playlist that will surely give everyone the holiday feels.
4.) Shop and send gifts online
Even with the pandemic, the Christmas rush is still inevitable. We highly suggest you stay safe and shop online instead. It saves you time, energy, and even money. Take advantage of huge holiday online sales and finish your Christmas shopping all in one go. You can even send your gift directly to your recipient by having it delivered to their doorsteps. How hassle-free is that?
However, and wherever you spend your Christmas, what matters most is really who you spend it with. No fancy gifts and extravagant celebrations are needed. Just you and your loved ones sharing laughter over good food and music – even from afar.
