2020 is likely to be a Christmas like no other. Just like the entire year has been completely different. We’ve been told that we may have to make plans for a digital Christmas as the pandemic might not allow us to bring extended families together around the table. Is the risk of potential death worth sprouts and crackers with Granny? Whatever you think and however you feel, lets have a look at some ideas of how to enjoy a digital Christmas.
A Digital Christmas
The idea of a digital Christmas might be everything against our natural and traditional instincts but it might be on the cards for 2020. Connecting with loved ones over broadband rather than in person. Zoom meetings, FaceTime and WhatsApp video calling are what can bring us together. This will allow us to see kids opening presents, sing carols together around the piano and even enjoy the turkey dinner together. If you have loved ones who haven’t got access to these things, be sure to at least lend them a tablet or laptop for Christmas Day.
Family From Around The World
We’re so used to connecting with those in other countries via the internet, why not get everyone logged onto Zoom at the same time and enjoy a massive meal together, wherever everyone is around the globe? You could even simply pop a tablet on the mantlepiece so the Grandparents can log in now and again to see what the grandkids are up to. If watching a festive flick together is part of your tradition, you can still watch a Christmas movie together via Teleparty.
Of course, Christmas decorations are a huge part of many people’s festive season and that should continue in a digital Christmas. We’ve got so many lovely decorations in stock that you can spruce you house up with. Looking at one another through a screen isn’t very festive but having a wonderful Christmas background adds some holly to your ivy and silent to your night. Twinkling lights, flickering candlelight and these string snowflake decorations are perfect! How about sending one of our mystery boxes to each household in your extended family? That way you can still spread some Christmas joy.
A digital Christmas might not be what we all want but it might be the hand we are dealt. Let’s try and make the most of it.
