We’ve listed down 10 Fun Ways to Safely Celebrate Christmas This Year and make it extra special for you even at the last minute…
Make your own ornaments
Creating your very own Christmas ornaments to decorate with can be a fun activity for the whole family. From salt dough and twig ornaments to construction paper chains – ideas are endless and you’ve got all the creative liberty to do it! Better yet, why not have a little handmade ornament exchange with loved ones to place on their trees too?

Festively decorate your home
Holidays this year will be mostly indoors, so turning your space into the winter wonderland of your dreams is in order! Set up an incredible light display both indoors and outdoors. Pick up some fun decorations to put in your living room and out in the yard. Have a hot chocolate station on your kitchen island. And for the final touch, don’t forget the holiday-themed scented candles to set the festive mood!

Create a holiday playlist
Christmas won’t be complete without your very own playlist to get into the holiday spirit! Compile a playlist of your favorites to listen to on Christmas morning. Better yet, you can also compile it days before to build up your excitement on Christmas Day!

Watch Christmas films
Get excited about Christmas by having a holiday movie marathon! You can start with the classics like It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, then to How The Grinch Stole Christmas to Home Alone. If you’re feeling a bit more romantic, go to films like While You Were Sleeping and Love Actually. Just make sure to get your cozy blanket, hot cocoa, and Christmas cookies ready!

You can get printable DIY Christmas Card templates that are easy to make with the kids! Plus, you can save by using materials that you already have in your home!

Plan a virtual Santa visit
Nope. Santa Claus isn’t canceling Christmas this year. But during these times, it’s going to be a bit difficult to visit him in person. The good thing is that there are ways for your kids to still interact with Santa all in the safety of your home! You can book a live video chat with Santa via Zoom, get a personalized letter or a call from the North Pole, or you can go on a personalized journey through Macy’s “Santaland at Home.” There are tons of options to choose from that your kids will enjoy!
Play Secret Santa via mail
Holidays wouldn’t be complete without a Secret Santa exchange! Sure, there might be some challenges on how to execute it, but organizing it ahead of time is key! First, send invitations to friends for everyone to mark their calendars. Next, draw names using an online generator like Elfster. Lastly, host a virtual exchange via Zoom to see what everyone else gets! Spice it up with themes, holiday cocktails or sparkling wine, and a dress code to bring out the holiday spirit!
Put on your Christmas pajamas
It’s all about traditions during the holiday season! If you’re all set with the decorations, watching Christmas movies, and the steamy hot cocoa, what else is left? Christmas PJs, of course! Don the comfiest and the most festive matching holiday-themed pajamas with the family on Christmas morning! Don’t forget to take pics or it didn’t happen!
Prepare a festive meal
What could be merrier than the main event that’s Christmas dinner? By now, start preparing a menu that everyone will enjoy! From the meaty mains like roast beef to casseroles as side dishes, then to mini Gingerbread Houses for dessert. Your jolly feast will definitely be one for the books!
For the ultimate Christmas feast, here are some ideas to get you started.
Host a virtual Christmas Party
This year, our friends and family might be far away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see them – at least, virtually. Send everyone an e-vite with a Zoom link to host your Christmas party online. Up the ante by preparing some Christmas backgrounds, music, and games for everyone to enjoy!
Here are some Christmas games for you to add to your Christmas party fun!
