This holiday season, you may be taking on a very Buddy the Elf-like role, and hosting a virtual Christmas party for your friends and family. So far, the position has probably required sending everyone the Zoom link and spreading cheer through memes, GIFs, and care packages. While you're preparing for the main event, peruse these virtual Christmas party ideas that will be sure to put everyone — even the Scrooge in your family — in a merry and bright mood.
This virtual Christmas party will certainly look and feel much different than your usual in-person gatherings, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. But rest assured, it will be filled with new and old traditions. Thanks to technology, you can still watch a holiday rom-com with your besties and snack on peanut butter balls made with your grandma's famous recipe. Despite not being in the same abode, you and your cousins can still sport matching pajamas, and catch up on life while sipping peppermint-flavored cocktails.
You just have to be open to online experiences hosted by people around the world, ugly sweater fashion shows, and making the most of a virtual party that celebrates all-things Christmas. You've already picked a date and time for your party, or even sent out the Zoom link. Now all you need to do is to add some of these party ideas to your itinerary, and get ready for the merry and bright times to come.
