As much as we don’t want to admit it, it seems very likely that we will all be experiencing a digital or socially distanced Christmas this year. The pandemic has changed life as we know it and until it’s over, it looks like large gatherings will be a thing of the past. That doesn’t mean to say all things festive are ruined though. So here are some activities you can still do this Boxing Day:
Leftover turkey for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Sign us up.
Real shopaholics know their credit card details off by heart. For the rest of us, this will involve the challenging walk of getting up to get your purse or wallet. We all know the best deals are on Boxing Day so why not make a wish list now to avoid scrolling endlessly for things you don’t want or need. Whilst we’re here, this is also a good time to shop small, support a local business or stock up on gifts for the following year.
Zoom call with your besties
As much as we’re probably tired of the endless Zoom calls for work, it is completely different when it comes to your best friends. Why not set up a Zoom call, play some games, show off your gifts or have some virtual drinks? Zoom gloom doesn’t have to be so bad after all.
Watch a movie
Christmas movies are their own genre and there is a plethora of classics we love at Cohorted:
- Bad Santa
- Miracle on 34th Street
- Love Actually
- Home Alone
- Jingle All The Way
- The Holiday
You could even make a Christmas movie advent calendar.
Do absolutely nothing
Doing nothing at all is what we live for. It has been a hard year for us all in some way or another. We’ve had to come to a complete stop and if you need to do the same on Boxing Day, that’s okay too.
