virtual holiday as an opportunity to mix it up. .

an elaborate and fun online activity.

If you want to keep it short, share one aspect of
a meal together, such as dessert or a toast.
3. Incorporate entertainment
into your party.
Keep everyone excited and engaged by
planning some form of entertainment.
Whether it be your cousin showing off their musical talent
or your aunt being put in charge of creating a Spotify playlist,
entertainment adds to any celebration. .
4. Play virtual games together.
There are plenty of virtual gaming options out there,
whether it be through a phone app or a website. .
You can even create
your own trivia contest or
play a game of charades. .

free time to just talk.
No matter how structured you’d like your virtual
holiday to be, it’s a good idea to allow some open time.
Guests can use the unstructured time to
mingle and interact however they’d like.
