The word Christmas means “Mass of Christ”. ‘X-MAS’ is the short derivation of the term. Christmas is basically celebrated on or just after the Winter Solstice. The year calls it the shortest day of the northern hemisphere.
ONLINE CHRISTMAS INVITATION – This year the traditional way of invitation has to be kept behind the doors. For the safety of you and your loved ones send your guest loop invite via online invitations.
In order to look for everyone’s well-being transparency in the invite is the key to risk tolerance. In the online invite, you can provide all the information’s and steps the guests need to follow.
PARTY SPACE IDEAS – Once, the invitation is done the next thing is the space or landscape. As this year is nothing like the previous year’s indoor gathering makes it more risk and a threat for us.
Outdoor space is the perfect spot for the gathering. And if there are fewer chances for outdoor planning then choosing the space that has more ventilation is perfect.
KEEP IT SMALL – The gathering should be small and intact. This helps in less exposure to risk for your guests. Along with fewer guests and avoiding overnight stays and parties, there are few more guidelines.
Set up the sanitizer stations at all the entrances and exits. Use the paper towel instead of the regular hand towels. Ask your guests to bring their own face masks.
VIRTUAL CELEBRATION – Though the traditional way of Christmas celebration is what we are habituated with. The virtual celebration can be turned into a fun one even. This year was all about video calling and zoom meetings
Invite your whole crew to the link for the meet of video calling. For getting much of the Christmas vibes you can send party hats, decorations, calendars, food items, and decoration kits in advance.
FOOD SAFETY – Food safety is the most important part of Christmas celebrations. The feast can be done with a small twist. The open cocktail party can be changed into cans and bottles.
Instead of the potlucks and buffets of family-style, you can designate only one person to look after the food counter. Rather than an open tray of snacks and nuts or candy, it can be made into a single snack box for the individuals.
CONCLUSION – However, this year’s Christmas celebration is a mismatch. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our way of celebration. Yet, by following the CDC recommendations and guidelines you can plan your Christmas ideas. This year let’s be clear about safety and social distancing. We wish you MERRY CHRISTMAS!
