We’re proposing a virtual toast! You cannot lockdown love and joy, they will always find a way to be felt and expressed. That’s why our Christmas Eve Dinners are going online to balance safety and celebration. Even if a physical hug isn’t possible now, time spent virtually still counts. This could even be the start of a new tradition for your family.

Start your preparation as early as now. First, make sure that all family members know how to use Zoom or other group video call apps. Decide what matching outfits to wear and comfort food to cook or order. Curate a Christmas music playlist that would play in the background as you share a meal with loved ones. Make lots of checklists! All these little preparations would make you feel that it’s indeed the holidays!
