Fun Ideas for Celebrating New Year’s Eve at Home This Year
It has been quite the year, to say the least. While it might be tempting to ring in the New Year with your friends and family, the CDC’s latest guidelines encourage people to celebrate at home with only those in their immediate households, and to hold virtual gatherings instead. That doesn’t mean that your New Year’s Eve is cancelled or even that it has to be boring. Here are a few ideas for keeping your celebrations safe and fun this year.
Host a Virtual Party
Invite your friends and family to join you virtually to toast to the new year. You can even schedule it to begin close to midnight so that you all can count down together without having to spend hours on a call.
Plus, Zoom just lifted its 40-minute limit for New Year’s Eve so that everyone can celebrate together!
Prepare Some Virtual Games
Don’t just sit there awkwardly in your party clothes — have a few prompts and games prepared. We suggest opening up the conversation by asking everyone to go around and say one thing that they are looking forward to in 2021.
Binge-Watch into the New Year
Once all of your Zoom parties are over, you can settle in on the couch and celebrate all of the awesome TV shows and movies 2020 had to offer.
Whether you’re catching up on your list of Christmas movies or watching your favorite new series, spend the last day of 2020 clearing your ‘To Be Watched’ list so you can start fresh in 2021.
