Christmas in 2020 is shaping up to be slightly different when it comes to visiting family members and inviting people into your home. However, this doesn’t mean that the celebrations are completely cancelled as a result. With several small changes, you can keep your family entertained whilst keeping everyone safe and in the festive mood.
In this article, we will be providing you with insight into how you can make this Christmas one to remember regardless of the current circumstances:
Schedule In Video Calls With The Family
During a time of ongoing covid-19 restrictions, it is safe to say that this Christmas is not going to be like any that we have had before. As a result, a majority of us will be unable to visit our families at this special time of year, therefore taking the time to schedule out video calls with the family is the best way of combatting this and maintaining your connections.
Start New Traditions At Home
In addition to making video calls for the family, it is important to start new traditions to keep everyone In the festive spirit at this unusual time. However, by making the tradition of sending a letter to Santa you can get everyone in the festive spirit whilst giving the family something to look forward to in the long-term.
Not only will this keep your family in the festive spirit, but it will give your kids something that can keep and look back on in the future with fond memories. This can be a tradition that runs alongside several others to bring joy to your family regardless of the restrictions you are under.
Host A Virtual Christmas Party
If you want to have some fun with your friends during this unusual time then you can do no better than a virtual Christmas party. Whether you do a wine tasting, quiz or even a Christmas cookoff, there are a number of amazing ways that you can make the perfect Christmas party for everyone.
Though this will take time for you to organise, this will provide you with a new way to socialise even when you cannot meet up with your friends outside.
Make Use Of Group Watch Settings
As the world has had to adapt to spending more time inside, several applications have now changed their user interface to bring people closer when watching their content. One of these applications that have changed the interface is Disney+ with its new group watch interface.
This allows you to watch content online with your friends at the same time giving the illusion of a film night even with everyone in different houses. This is ideal for the festive period as this will allow you to watch all your favourite Christmas films with the family without breaking restrictions.
With this in mind, there are several ways that you can maintain the festive spirit in your household regardless of the restrictions that you are currently under. Which of these will you be trying with your family in 2020?
