3 Alternative ways to enjoy your New Year’s Eve during a pandemic

Dec 30 2020 Share

New Year’s Eve is just one day away, and with a pandemic on our hands, we can only do so much to welcome the New Year!

Here are some ideas of a pandemic-safe way to enjoy your New Year’s Eve.

Let’s start the year off with being sensible and safe while having fun as well!

1.Have a group video-call and play a New Year’s Eve drinking game.

We all know there’s nothing like celebrating the New Year with close friends and a drink or two. Under the current circumstances, that’s all bit unlikely to happen in the usual way. However, you can always do it virtually. Although it’s not exactly the same, it’s quite a good alternative considering our circumstances.
Plan a few drinking games and make sure to organise yourselves for the countdown.
Make the best of what’s available to you and try to enjoy it in new and temporary ways.

2.Have a themed party with your household bubble.

Who said you have to physically leave your own house and go somewhere else to celebrate the New Year’s rolling in?
That’s right. No one ever.
Get dressed up, decorate your house and have a COVID safe party with your own bubble.
You can even add that extra kick and make your party a themed one; 1990’s, Gatsby, Disney, the sky’s the limit!

3. Cook a special meal and bake your own dessert and welcome in the new year in style.

For those of you who might prefer a more traditional celebration of the New Year, you can still get dressed, cook a lovely meal and have a couple of drinks on New Year’s Eve.

Socialising is out of the cards, but fun definitely doesn’t have to be!
