With rising case numbers all over the world, the Covid-19 pandemic has guaranteed that Thanksgiving will look different this year. For most of us that means it may be time to host a holiday celebration that unfolds in the same virtual environment as work and school.
So, how are you going to add more to your Thanksgiving experience? What about, say, serving a delicious side dish of virtual fun via a video conferencing solution like ClickMeeting?
Dominika Paciorkowska, Managing Director at ClickMeeting shares 5 tips for hosting a virtual party this Thanksgiving:
- Invite distant friends and relatives. Every so often, something pops up that prevents a loved one from being able to come to a party. In these situations, a video conferencing solution is the magic wand that can beam up whoever is missing out on all the fun!
- Come together around food and wine. Food and drink offer an obvious opportunity for friends and family members to come together during virtual holidays. This can be as easy as firing up a video chat to run through dinner!
- Decorate and dress up. Setting up your table, and adding some flowers or balloons or even a homemade backdrop can definitely get you in the spirit of Thanksgiving. And a video chat allows everyone to enjoy your masterpiece!
- Play some games. If magic isn’t your family’s jam, leveraging technology to play virtual games might be another way to celebrate as an extended group. Virtual charades anyone?!
- Snap a family photo. Even if you’re spending Thanksgiving virtually this year, you can still take a family photo — hopefully one that will make you laugh when you look back at it in years to come.
While Thanksgiving looks a bit different this year, ClickMeeting makes it easy for friends and family to come together and share these moments together.
