This Christmas season big gatherings remain prohibited due to Covid pandemic. If you will follow health and safety protocols, you can still enjoy the holiday season despite certain restrictions. If you have 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 would be fun to gather your friends and relatives online. The party organizer will suggest themes, what food and refreshments to prepare, outfit to wear to complete the party outfit, music, the works.
You can even play different virtual games with your loved ones. Since it will be Christmas season, let’s not forget about gift giving. There are several gift ideas that are indeed perfect and pandemic safe for everyone. (Check my previous post about Christmas gift ideas.)
In all the preparation for the holidays, health experts have advised to observe minimum public health standards such as wearing of face masks, washing of hands, and observing safe physical distancing 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 Christmas shopping? I know it’s kind of insensitive to ask about Christmas preparations amid the pandemic. However, sometimes you have to think about good things for a while in order to get through the day. I understand that celebrating Christmas this year will be different from all the past Christmases that we had, but the spirit will always be there.
Anyway, this is just a wish list for me. If you have some extras to buy something for your home, we can check this place in Manila called Dapitan Arcade. They have an online shop where you can choose from a wide variety of items from household to intricate decorations, mostly locally made.
We rarely have Christmas decorations at home. So I’ll be including a few items like a new nativity scene set, handmade lantern, and Christmas lights. How about you? Have you started putting up you Christmas ornaments from last year? Hope everyone is okay so we can look forward to the Christmas season free of sickness.
