18 Jul Christmas 2020: A New Normal Celebration
Christmas 2020 will be all about sharing the warmth and happiness of this festive season with your loved ones. This year has been a year of inclemency. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our lives, and made us adapt to new changes.
This Christmas make sure you make the best out of the new normal celebration, keeping in mind ’social-distancing’ is still the buzzword. We must take proper preventive measures to ensure that everyone makes it through this year with good health.
Here are a few ideas that would make your new normal Christmas celebration worthwhile.
An itinerary for Christmas 2020
Celebrating in large groups might be risky this year. The safest option is arranging a cozy Christmas party at your home with your family. After all, “home is where the heart is”.
- Festive decoration for the right ambiance
Decorate your home to add a perfect holiday cheer to it. Making DIY paper lamps will be fun for you as well as the kids. You can also order color-coordinated festoons, Christmas masks, and other decorations to turn your living space into a winter wonderland.
- There can be no celebration without a sumptuous meal!
No Christmas party can be considered complete without a delicious Christmas cake. Make sure you have an assortment of fancy cookie cutters, food colors, and frostings so that your cakes and confectionaries add to the festive décor.
Prepare your main courses and desserts according to your preference. From minced pies to puddings served with delicious ice cream, to roasted chicken- once you start cooking, the air will smell delicious enough to set the mood and the appetite for your Christmas party.
For beverages, prepare the classic steaming hot chocolate, everyone loves. To spice things up a bit you can prepare some cool cocktails, and spiced toddy perfectly suitable for the weather.
Most importantly, do not forget to wash your hands before every meal, and a bottle of sanitizer will come in handy.
- Christmas activities
Since you will be celebrating at your home this year, you might as well plan some fun activities with your family members. You might want to take out your set of vintage MB Games boxes or puzzles that you have stashed away in your sideboard and plan an engaging afternoon.
Plan a virtual party on Zoom or Google Meet with your friends and relatives you cannot meet this year. Thanks to the online delivery service you can also send them wonderful gift sets. After all, exchanging gifts during this time of the year is a cultural necessity.
In the evening choose from a list of traditional Christmas movies you can watch with your family. You can go for classics such as It’s A Wonderful Life or White Christmas, or try out new films like Klaus on Netflix.
There are more ways to make your Christmas interesting, than the ones we have suggested here. Most importantly, you should be able to spend a wonderful year’s end with your loved ones and ensure everyone is safe in these trying times.
However, despite all our efforts and precautions, the risk of infection remains.
