Big gatherings remain prohibited this Christmas season due to the Covid pandemic. You can still enjoy the holiday season if you follow the health and safety protocols despite certain restrictions.
If you have a good Internet connection at home, you can organize your first virtual Christmas party and reunion via different platforms online. (Some friends on Facebook are doing this already.)
It will be fun to gather friends and relatives online. All you need is a party theme, food and refreshments, outfit, and music to play. You can even play different virtual games with your loved ones.
Since it is also the season for gift-giving, there are perfect and pandemic safe gift ideas for everyone.Â (Please check my previous post about Christmas gift ideas.)
In all the preparation for the holidays, health experts have advised observing minimum public health standards, such as wearÂ face masks,Â wash hands, andÂ practice safeÂ physical distancingÂ even when you are with your family members.
These practices, experts said, have been proven to decrease the number of Covid-19 infections.
Are you ready to make your early Christmas shopping? I made a shortlist just in case I’ll have the fund for online shopping. 🙂
If you have some extras to buy for your home, we can check this place in Manila called Dapitan Arcade. They have an online shop where you can purchase simple household to intricate decorations. They are mostly locally made.
We rarely have Christmas decorations at home, so Iâ€™ll be including a new nativity scene set, a handmade lantern, and probably Christmas lights in the list. How about you, have you started putting up your Christmas ornaments from last year? I hope everyone is okay so we can look forward to the Christmas season free of sickness.
