The holidays look a little different this year because of the obvious global pandemic that’s currently going on. 2020 was meant to be a milestone year, a changing of the decade where individuals set new and grand goals for themselves. Life didn’t stop when people were unable or unmotivated to reach their goals. Instead of focusing on that, we believe that the holidays can still be fun.
This is a great time to connect with the people in your household/bubble and with other individuals online to relax after a stress inducing year. Living in the age of technology with an abundance of things to do, enjoy your holiday season with our top 7 holiday activity recommendations!
1. Hangout on Zoom call
Is it strange that sitting on a family/group zoom call has become normal? This is an almost no effort activity where you can chill on virtual calls with your beverage or cannabis indulgence of choice and have a “screen-to-screen” conversation.
2. Play old-school games
Remember when smart phones didn’t exist? Instead of apps we had tangible games. This was an era in history where a game of Monopoly could tear a family apart and end in a furious table flip. Dust off those old games you likely still have in storage and get the whole family involved. Maybe avoid Jumanji, we don’t need a second pandemic!
3. Enjoy arts and crafts
This is a great time to complete those unfinished craft projects. There may be a box in your house with a half-knitted scarf, an almost hemmed outfit, an unpainted accent wall, or unfished facemasks. Arts and crafts is also a great way for families to have some fun together; why not have a paint night or an ornament making house party!
4. Create a movie theater experience
People have been streaming endless hours of shows and watching movies. Take this activity to the next level and make this experience special with the people in your household. Create a movie theater experience at home. This includes a family movie pick, comfortable seating, the right lighting, great food and snacks, and of course BUTTERY movie theatre style popcorn.
5. Play online games
Board games weren’t your thing (Grandma 100% cheated in monopoly); not to worry there are plenty of apps and online platforms that offer multiplayer games. Get your game face on and enjoy a night of activities with friends and family.
6. Have a living room karaoke session
Unleash your inner powerhouse with some living room karaoke. This activity doesn’t require any extra technology or equipment just a laptop/smart phone/smart TV. There are many Karaoke channels on YouTube with a variety of songs and genres. Belt out your favourite hits this holiday season.
7. ENJOY CANNABIS
Relax this holiday season; after all you’ve earned it after a tough year. Of course, our final and favourite recommendation would be to use your choice of cannabis products. Enjoy your most loved product recreationally, medicinally, for pain relief and/or all the above!
Make this holiday season all about quality time with your loved ones, whether virtually or within your household/bubble. It’s important to create amazing memories so when we look back on 2020 we won’t just think of the global pandemic, but reminisce about the fun memories that were created over the holiday season.
