It’s been over a year since the pandemic started. And with all the restrictions in place, we still get to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other family occasions, but without the usual things that we love to do. We are missing out on dine-ins, out-of-town vacations, and gatherings among family and friends.
Virtual parties during this pandemic are the current alternatives for special events. But a family celebration can still be special. It's simply a matter of being more creative with what you have.
Here are some tips in celebrating a family occasion amidst the pandemic:
Make the start of the day special
Begin the day by preparing a superb breakfast. Play some music to make it livelier and more memorable.
Deliver love to your home
This is perfect for those who are away from their families. Let your family feel your presence by surprising them with the delivery of food. For birthday occasions, you can book a delivery for a cake and balloons.
Doing things together at home
The country has eased up restrictions on certain tourist spots. However, activities at home remain to be hassle-free and with fewer worries.
Play board games, watch movies or do other things with your family at home. Bring the spa experience to the comforts of your own place!
Who wouldn’t love to catch up with your long-distance relatives and friends? Video conference platforms are available for us to use. Just send them a link and let the party begin - virtually!
The gift of health
For every special occasion, the best gift is good health and safety. Aside from staying at home, you can speak to your family about immunization against COVID-19 and other vaccine-preventable diseases.
There are already approved COVID-19 vaccines here in the Philippines. Everyone is encouraged to sign up for vaccination. Local government units are giving free COVID-19 vaccines.
The pandemic is far from over, but by getting vaccinated, we are moving a step closer to achieving herd immunity. Soon, we may be back to face-to-face reunions and other gatherings!
