Holidays will definitely be different this year and adapting to the new normal means that big family gatherings are minimized, and safety protocols should be applied.
Here are some tips that can help you safely celebrate Christmas during this pandemic.
1. Virtual Gathering
Before the pandemic, if a relative or friend cannot make it to the gathering, you know for sure that they are missed. Now, with the help of platforms that offer video calls, far-away friends and relatives can now virtually gather up to celebrate the holidays.
2. Skip large family gatherings
Celebrating with the people you live with is the safest choice to celebrate Christmas during these trying times. If you’re having guests at home, it is recommended to limit the number of people.
3. Wear a mask and always sanitize
A definite must: Wear a mask to help protect yourself from COVID-19 and make sure to properly store it in a safe and sanitized area or container when not in use and always bring an extra. Don’t forget to sanitize your hands once in a while, especially if you are unable to wash your hands.
4. Watch movies and play games with your family
Christmas is also about keeping your family close and getting to know them more through recreational activities such as watching movies, playing games, or even with just a simple conversation. Skip the phones and connect with your loved ones on a personal level this holiday season.
