This holiday season has been one for the books. Much different than how we have spent holidays in the past so let us make the best of it!
Schedule either Zoom or Facetime dates with family members
Depending on how your family is planning on celebrating the holidays this year, if it includes a virtual celebration here are a few tips to make it a little more fun and a little less awkward. First, if using Zoom, a free virtual video platform, only allows 45 minutes at a time so plan accordingly! Check your Wi-Fi beforehand to ensure you have the best connection to hear all the family jokes. McCormick offers Fast Fiber internet if you are looking for better internet as well.
“Socially Distanced” family walks
If your family members live close by and want to see you while still staying safe, a winter walk is a perfect way to spend that time! Enjoying the fresh air with the ones you love adds to the holiday joy. If you need ideas for amazing walks, McCormick trails offers over 7 miles of beautiful walking trails that showcase ponds, lakes, and furry friends. Do not worry, the trails are wide enough to go on the perfect social distancing family walks!
“Socially Distanced” dinner tables
Invite the family over but take precautions by setting up a socially distanced dinner table! Similar to a “kids table”, space out some tables for everyone to eat with their household while also sharing the company of the whole family. If you want to be safer, move to celebration outside with a warm fire, heaters and lots of blankets to enjoy the special day.
However you send this holiday season, just ensure that you are keeping everyone around you and yourself safe! Wash the hands, wear face masks, and double check how you are feeling before joining in the festivities with friends and families. Take the precautions so that you and your family are heading into 2021 as healthy as you can!
