Christmas cheer in a time of COVID

User Rating: / 0
As I'm thinking ahead to how to prepare for this upcoming fall/winter, I decided I'd like to up my Christmas decor/celebration game this year. Do y'all have any tips or ideas on how I can better decorate my apartment and/or celebrate this holiday season? I normally don't do much decorating in my small apartment, especially for holidays. I wanted to bring some of the Christmas cheer inside this year, given how I likely will not be traveling or hosting any holiday festivities. In the past, I've always felt like stuff was too expensive or just going to gather dust and look tacky, but I think I just don't know how to do holiday decorating!

I live in the Bay Area, where it doesn't feel much like the holiday season even in normal years. Any ideas for how I can effectively do more?

Some things I'm planning on doing:
  • Getting a mini fake tree to put in the corner of my apartment
  • Putting up a string of lights outside my doorway
  • Sending Christmas cards (perhaps tongue-in-cheek and socially distanced-themed)
  • Volunteering at the local grocery/food pantry for seniors
  • Organizing some virtual calls and gift exchanges for some friend groups
  • Aggressive listening to Spotify's Christmas and Christmas Pop playlists

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
