It may not be possible to hold your usual Christmas parties because of the current restrictions to large gatherings but you can still celebrate and enjoy it all the same. Although you may have to get creative and make some adjustments.
Sure you can eat and toast with those you already live within the house, but for other things you like to do for Christmas you’d have to do them differently. The good news is that Christmas is still happening and you get to try something new and interesting to celebrate it! Using Matterport 3D virtual tours, for one, are becoming popular these days. You’ll get to see some examples below.
Having said that, here are some ideas that will help you create a celebration you and possibly your friends and relatives will remember and talk about in the years to come.
Take Virtual Tours Of Europe’s Best Christmas Markets
Different countries and cultures celebrate Christmas differently. While all of them are great in their own way, there’s just something special and festive with how Europe does it especially with their Christmas markets.
Although some European countries had to cancel their Christmas markets this year, there’s still a way to experience some of them virtually.

Organize A Virtual Christmas Party With Friends

Whatever you and your friends are most comfortable with, what’s important is you guys still made the effort to reconnect and celebrate the holidays together even through the computer.
Meet Santa Virtually
When was the last time you celebrated with santa? Probably when you were still a kid, right? Why not try it again, but virtually this time? You can now reminisce about being young again and how fun was it back then when you still waited for Santa to deliver your gift. You may want to try Zoom with Santa and Virtual Grotto Experience.

With everything that’s been going on, these may actually be fun for a change.
