The year 2020 has been an unprecedented one and has changed the way we experience the world around us. In order to keep our spirits up and make the most of this unique time, families have had to get creative in finding ways to celebrate special occasions together. Even though some traditional holiday activities might be altered or not possible, there is plenty of exciting new opportunities for creating meaningful memories that will last a lifetime.
Here are some tips for making the most out of this unique time and creating special experiences unique to 2020 and beyond.
With many indoor venues off-limits during lockdown, why not head outside? Take advantage of sunny days by having a picnic or going on a nature walk. Set up camp in the backyard or explore a local park. Playing outdoor games such as tag, hide-and-seek, and Frisbee are also great ways to spend quality time with your family while getting some much-needed exercise.
With the help of technology, it’s now possible to connect with people all over the world from the comfort of home. Hosting virtual celebrations for holidays or special occasions is a great way not only to keep in touch with distant loved ones but also to create new traditions unique to 2020. Online platforms such as Zoom, Skype and House party offer exciting options for everyone to join in on the fun regardless of their location.
Fun at Home:
For those who prefer staying in, there are plenty of activities to keep everyone entertained. Why not host an indoor movie night or game night? Have a bake-off and see who can create the best dessert or whip up a unique meal. You could also take on house projects such as planting a garden, painting a mural or creating DIY decorations for an upcoming holiday.
The year 2020 has presented many challenges, but it has also opened up opportunities for us to create new traditions that are unique to this time period. From outdoor activities and online celebrations to fun at home, get creative in finding ways to make the most of this special time and enjoy meaningful experiences with family and friends.
Creating New Traditions:
The best way to make sure your family’s holiday celebrations stay unique is by creating your own traditions. They don’t have to be complicated or expensive; they just need to be meaningful! Take time each year to brainstorm fun activities like movie night, board game tournaments, scavenger hunts, or crafting sessions. You can also host virtual dinners with distant family members and friends, send holiday cards to share your gratitude, or decorate the house for special occasions.
Make New Memories:
Another way to make sure your family has something to look forward to be by creating new memories together. Whether it’s an outdoor picnic, a weekend getaway, or a home-cooked meal with extended family members, take time each month to truly enjoy the moment and create lasting memories.
Celebrate in Style:
Don’t forget that you don’t have to stick with traditional holidays; you can choose any day of the year as an occasion to celebrate! Take advantage of seasonal activities like apple-picking, pumpkin carving, or ice skating. And don’t forget to make it a special occasion by adding decorations, wearing matching outfits, and taking plenty of pictures!
With so much uncertainty in the world these days, it can be tough for families to find joy in celebrating their lives. But with a little creativity and effort you can create new traditions that everyone will love and memories that will last a lifetime. So go ahead – break out the party hats and noisemakers and celebrate your family’s own unique 2020!
We hope you and your family have a safe and joyful holiday season, filled with new traditions and memories to last a lifetime. Wishing you all the best this year and in 2021. Cheers!
