Host A Virtual Holiday Party
Since we’re spending more time together online, hosting virtual parties is becoming the new norm. There are some upsides to hosting a virtual holiday party, too; it isn't like organizing an office meeting or a formal gathering. Everyone is on time, nobody has to drive there, and everybody can easily put up California-inspired holiday decorations as their awesome background.
Planning a virtual party to celebrate the holiday season isn’t difficult. All you have to do is use your imagination and get your guests to be as excited as you are. You also have to make sure everyone has a strong internet connection to avoid any technical issues. Then, the fun part begins.
There are numerous online games to choose from to play with your friends: themed bingo, holiday battlefield, virtual photo booth, Silent Night charades...your options are practically endless. Get everyone to dress up for the virtual dinner party, or better yet, encourage your guests to wear holiday costumes. If your guests are used to potluck-style dinner parties (like the ones you do on Friendsgiving), exchange recipes beforehand so everyone can indulge in making the traditional recipes and virtually show off their creations.
Nobody should feel isolated during the holiday season, which is why it’s important for everyone to continue staying in touch with their loved ones. For the ones who miss listening to holiday music, prepare a themed playlist and share it with your virtual party guests; anyone can add their song choices.
Celebrating socially distanced holidays shouldn’t be complicated; embrace the seasonal spirit and reconnect (literally) with your loved ones over a virtual dinner table.
