HOW TO HAVE A PERFECT COVID CHRISTMAS
At the beginning of the new year, chances are you never thought 2020 will come with all its ups and downs but it did. Sojourning through a worldwide pandemic that hit families, businesses and affecting almost every facet of our lives. We sure weren’t expecting any of it.
Nonetheless, It’s the yuletide season and you probably are as confused as I am on how to celebrate in a year that perhaps kept taking. Here is a list of things you can do to make the best of the season and still have a memorable Christmas.
1. Get in the mood
You probably do not like decorations and do not feel like putting up Christmas trees, decorating, lighting up your home, buying Christmas cards and all that is cheesy, but it is not. Simply doing some Christmas shopping and decoration can put you in the right spirits and even lighten up the mood of your family members and loved ones. Everyone needs that little bit of sunshine.
One of the things that characterizes Christmas is giving, this ‘COVID’ Christmas don’t forget to shop and give thoughtful gifts to your loved ones and those in need. More than any other time people need your gifts this period.
Some people that you should keep in mind are the visibly indigent, motherless children homes, those on the streets, your colleagues, staff, clients, home helpers and all those who have worked tirelessly through the year. It goes a long way
3. Make Special Memories
Chances are you had serious plans to travel the world this Christmas and make tons of memories. The good news is this, you still can make these memories from your home. Plan a get together (COVID compliant) and have your closest people around, cook new dishes, take great photos and make those memories.
4. Make money
With the pandemic came inflation and recession in many areas, so whilst you enjoy the yuletide do not relax completely. Seek out ways to make an income and make that schmoneyyy. Who knows what 2021 comes with? Hopefully great things
5. Count your blessings
Sit back, relax, take stock and recount the things you are grateful for. Make a list of at least 1-3 things you are grateful for and I am sure you would find even more than 3 things to be thankful for.
Have a happy ‘COVID’ Christmas.
