One thing is for sure, this year we’re set to have a Christmas unlike any other. But no matter how far away your loved ones are, it’s still possible to get into the festive spirit, be together and celebrate everything we have to be thankful for.
Just because you won’t be hosting the full party this year, there's no reason not to get into the swing of things. In fact, it’s even more reason to fill your home with decorations and instil that much needed Christmas spirit.
In preparation for the big day, why not try your hand at some crafting. This is a great way to bring the family and your friends together in the run up to Christmas, with virtual zoom sessions to make wreaths, candles and other seasonal delights. You could even make your own cards, knit, crochet or stitch handmade goods, or compile a photo album, scrapbook or a calendar. These heartfelt gifts will bring you closer together with loved ones.
We all know the holiday season has arrived when we hear those familiar carols and iconic Christmas number ones to jingle along to. Put together a playlist of your favourites and share with family ahead of the big day.
Share your beloved family recipes so you can all cook and eat together. Though you will likely want to keep to your family favourite main course, it’s a chance for the next generation to add a starter, signature bake or innovative cocktail to the menu to give your traditional Christmas a twist.
You could even have ‘virtual taster sessions’ in the run up to give you the perfect excuse to trial your favourite delicacies. Whether it’s making sure you have the right compilation for your cheese board, perfectly paired wines, hot chocolates, or sweet treats, winter is the season for embracing this indulgence.
The after dinner game of charades is a favourite for many, and there’s no reason you can’t continue the festive fun by playing all your favourites virtually. Round up your family and friends for a Yuletide Quiz, Murder Mystery, or even host those competitive board games online.
And lets not forget that Christmas wouldn’t be complete without our most cherished seasonal films. Get as excited for Santa as Elf, sing along to White Christmas, take comfort from the disasters of Bridget Jones, or embrace the nostalgia with Home Alone. Take it in turns to host a virtual movie night.
