How to Host a Virtual Holiday Party

How to Host a Virtual Holiday Party . As COVID-19 cases continue to rise, the holiday season will have to look a lot different this year. Here are five tips for hosting a virtual holiday party. Get creative. Families have likely logged hundreds of hours on video calls so far, so think of a virtual holiday as an opportunity to mix it up. Work with your family members to organize an elaborate and fun online activity. Center your celebration around food. Eating dinner together is an obvious opportunity to bring friends and family closer. If you want to keep it short, share one aspect of a meal together, such as dessert or a toast. Incorporate entertainment. Whether it be your cousin showing off their musical talent or your aunt being put in charge of creating a Spotify playlist, entertainment adds to any celebration. Play virtual games together. There are plenty of virtual gaming options out there, whether it be through a console, phone app or a website. You can even create your own trivia contest or play charades. Allow yourselves some free time to just talk. No matter how structured you’d like your virtual holiday to be, it’s a good idea to allow some open time. Guests can use the unstructured time to mingle and interact however they’d like
