With the COVID-19 pandemic still looming over the entire world, it is not a surprise that the holiday season will look different this year. Many people won’t be able to go back home, visit their families, have a typical holiday dinner, open presents together, or bring in the new year with each other. Even so, there are still ways to celebrate the holidays this year as the season approaches.
For many people worldwide, travel is nearly impossible, meaning no going home for the holidays. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t virtually be around your friends and family! Consider having a virtual get-together by using Zoom, Google Hangouts, Facetime, or any other virtual app that can have multiple people video chatting at once. This way, you can still have the holiday dinner, talk, open presents, and more together, even when you’re apart.
If you are going to a party for the holidays, only go to those that take place outdoors. There is more ventilation outside, making the risk of contracting COVID-19 less likely. Having a lot of people within a confined increases your risk of contracting the virus. Consider having your family dinner outside, or opening presents together in the park. This way, you can all stay safe and social distance while continuing traditions.
There are multiple activities you can partake in as a family in your car. Consider having a drive-through line by your grandparents’ house or going to a drive-in movie theater to watch a holiday-themed movie. You can also go and look at Christmas lights in your car, a great socially distanced activity. You don’t have to lose out on fun activities because of COVID-19; get creative and use what you have to stay safe!
At Restorations Therapy, we have not been immune to the effects of COVID-19. This is especially true with the holidays coming up. However, this has given us a reason to get creative with the ways we celebrate! Coming up with fun ways to continue holiday traditions adds even more joy to our staff, and we want to share these methods with you.

This way, you don’t have to miss out on the fun and even celebrate the traditions we all love so much during this time. The holidays can bring extensive amounts of joy if we search for ways to celebrate during these uncertain times. Don’t let COVID-19 get you down!
