The holidays during covid-19 will be different for all of us this year. People have already decorated for the autumn season. Get your holiday decor and cakes ready. But most importantly, don’t forget the egg nog! It’s been nearly a year since we’ve all had to adjust how we live and work during COVID-19. Now, the question is how do we stay safe during this holiday season and continue to celebrate family traditions? Will I be able to spend the holidays with my loved ones? Do I even bother singing “I’ll be home for Christmas” this year?
Don’t stress! We have answers to some of these questions as well as a few holiday gathering ideas to keep your season festive.
The CDC continues to keep us abreast of the situation. Plus, they have shared several recommendations for staying safe during the holiday season. These include:
- Staying up to date on infection numbers in your area
- Limiting the number of people at a gathering
- Continue to wear masks
- Maintaining social distancing
But even without the extra worries of the holidays during covid-19, planning for the holidays can be stressful. Here are some ideas for a safe and happy holiday season:
1. Wear Hats with Hair Attached
In addition to being fashionable hats, you can choose the hairstyle, color, texture and length of hair. Whether you’re choosing to do any of the below holiday activities, you can look great at home. But if you are using our holiday ideas, you can look effortlessly fabulous wearing a hat with hair attached. Best of all, you’ll only need to select an outfit and you’ll be ready for your safe holiday event!
2. Hold a Zoom Thanksgiving/Christmas Family Gathering
Isn’t technology great! Not only is it an invaluable tool for work, but it’s an indispensable tool for keeping in contact with loved ones. With software programs such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom, you can easily stay in touch with family and friends. Most people have big family dinners during the holidays. For the holidays during covid-19, you could create a menu, then have everyone cook their own small scale version. Make sure it’s complete with desserts and plenty of holiday cheer. Next, determine a time to meet up on Zoom. Then, enjoy a fantastic home-cooked meal with all the perks of a family gathering minus the massive clean up.
3. Have a Drive-By Holiday Party
The drive-by holiday party is a safe way to celebrate the holiday with family and friends with very little contact. To make it more special, send out invitations letting them know the specific date and time. Get your house ready for the drive-by. You can decorate your house outside with all the works. Festive lights, santa and sleigh, and more. And go the extra mile by preparing Christmas goodie bags. For the kids bags you could include fun trinkets and candy, of course. The adult bags could be small bottles of alcohol, socks, etc. Also, if you own a business, you could also add in some of your own products. The thing is, there’s no set way to have a drive-by party. The important thing is to have fun!
4. Don’t Forget Your Face Mask!
Whatever you decide to do this holiday season, don’t forget to wear a face mask in public and at gatherings! Wear your festive Christmas & Holiday face masks. These comfy and soft face masks are made with lightweight and breathable fabric. Plus, they can be washed and reused.
