8. Schedule a live performer.
Or have a talented family member perform instead. Since Christmas carol sing-a-longs might not work because of internet delays, you could hire a musician or recruit a family member to perform a few Christmas songs for the family. Regardless of where you are or how you're staying connected, a Christmas song is a foolproof way to keep the holiday spirit alive.9. Have a fun interactive holiday workshop.
Let the crafty cousin or aunt take over the Zoom for a bit to teach the family how to put together a wreath or set up a gingerbread house. This is one way to educate children on family Christmas traditions despite the physical distance of the season.10. Create Zoom Rooms.
Every Christmas, the adults gather around the dining table to enjoy a cup of wine (or four), while the kids play together in the living room without the adults around. You can still carry on this tradition by using Zoom's breakout rooms
if you have multiple devices at home. Basically, you can make a virtual version of the kid's table by giving the children their own Zoom room. The big kids, or the teenagers, can have their own too, while the adults can enjoy their wine time child-free.11. Tell stories by the fireplace.
No Christmas is complete without a story by the fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. Give the family's best storyteller the spotlight and let them narrate a Christmas story for all the children. You can even add sound effects and fireplace Zoom backgrounds to complete the experience.12. Take a screenshot!
With everyone gathered in front of their cameras, take a screenshot of everyone striking a pose. It's not every year that a screenshot becomes the latest family photo, but let it be a reminder of the hard year that the family overcame together.
