Get together virtually and create joyful holiday memories using these tips for virtual Christmas and Chanukah celebrations.


We may not get to gather together to celebrate the season in person, but we can still spend time together virtually. Here are some tips for virtual Christmas and Chanukah celebrations to get you inspired.

πŸ•Ž Holiday Party Preparations

Not everyone is comfortable using virtual chat and video platforms, so keep that in mind when you’re planning your celebrations. Schedule some time to connect with each person attending the celebration to assist with setup needs and questions.

Preparing ahead can lessen the chance for delays as people arrive at the virtual gathering. Taking this extra time to prepare helps lessen anxiety for people who less tech-savvy.

Even the best-made plans can have small issues that crop up and cause delays. Don’t let it stress you if things don’t go exactly as planned. Remember to have fun with everything, go with the flow, and have a backup plan.

πŸ’» Top Video Chat Platforms

Just in case you are not familiar with the variety of video chat platforms, here are three excellent options we recommend. Whether you choose a long-term platform that allows for daily Chanukah celebrations or a one-time use video chat platform for a Christmas party, you can host a celebration that makes lasting memories.

Facebook Messenger

  • You can connect with up to 50 people.
  • Download via Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
  • You can use your computer’s browser and webcam.

Zoom

  • Connect with up to 100 people on the free version.
  • You can share your screen. A pretty cool option for playing games.
  • Check out the video below to learn more.

Discord

  • Download the app or use your computer’s browser.
  • Set up a Thanksgiving community server.
  • People can pop in and out, share photos, and much more!

Zoom did an amazing thing for people across the world by allowing a pause on the 40-minute time limit on meetings on the free accounts during other holidays. Here’s hoping that they do the same thing for the winter holiday season!

🎁 Creative Celebration Invitations

Once you know which video chat platform you’ll be using, it’s time to invite your guests. Consider having a themed party that inspires others to get creative and join in the fun of the season. Remember to include any important details on the invitation.

You have options when sending your invitations. Since it’s a virtual celebration, you can feel completely comfortable sending email invitations. If you want to keep it traditional, pop your invitations in the mail.

πŸͺ Delicious Party Snacks

What’s more iconic about holiday celebrations than the food we get to enjoy together? You don’t have to sacrifice that joy when you have a virtual Christmas or Chanuka celebration.

Put together a box of delicious party foods to send ahead in preparation for the celebration. As the host of the party, consider sending virtual gift cards that allow guests to purchase their own snacks or use a grocery delivery service.

πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ Holiday Scavenger Hunt

Get everyone moving and create opportunities for laughter. Try a holiday scavenger hunt. Set a time limit for each hunt and have a plan to break tie check-ins should people arrive back at the same time.

This is a great way to let people share more about their lives by having them say something about the item they brought back to the party. Be prepared for fast-paced movement and lots of fun.

🎢 Holiday Celebration Music

Keep the celebration vibe strong by putting together a playlist of your favorite holiday or seasonal songs. Everyone can have this playing softly in the background while the celebration is ongoing. The tunes help people feel connected and keep awkward pauses at a minimum.

Share the music suggestions below or put together your own mix. Share with guests as they arrive at the celebration. If you are using Discord to connect, you can create an entire holiday music channel to share music throughout the season.

Note: Remind guests to choose a volume that allows them to hear the music without it coming through their microphone for others to hear.
