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.
🕎 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.
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.
💻 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.

🎁 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.
🍪 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.
🕵️♀️ 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.

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