Add Festive Cheer to Virtual Celebrations
Many folks are connecting virtually with extended family and friends over the holidays. To help virtual gatherings feel like something festive rather than just another video call, consider doing something fun. For example, send out pretty, personalized invites, as you might to an in-person holiday party.
You could propose that everyone dress for a theme (pajama party or fancy dress, as you like) or wear a funny hat or accessory. Or, for adults, propose a “cocktail hour” call and have each party make a signature drink or pour a glass of Champagne and have a virtual toast.
