2020 has been a difficult year for most of us, from fire out breaks to global pandemic to locked down across the world to protests upon protests and the tension that came along with the general elections and many others. Honestly, this year has been a rollercoaster of emotions, sadly we are still dealing with a lot and it feels is not over yet, not anytime soon. But, hopefully, the new year will be bring brighter days ahead and that’s worth celebrating.
While this New Year’s Eve is bound to look and feel a bit different from our usual traditional way of going to church, night out with friends and family or even a party, well I personally recommend you stay indoors and celebrate this new year eve with family or just your inner circle and if you still want to attend a big event, please don’t forget to mask up and observe all covid19 protocols.
To make the new year eve memorable and fun, here are a list of things you can do on new year’s eve.
1. Family PJ party
Yes!! this will be supper fun and memorable as well, you can decide whether you want it to be a family affair or you will invite your friends over to help you celebrate the new year. Where everyone wears their pjs and slippers. Serve food and drinks, play music or a movie marathon…It’s cozy and fun!
2. A Road Down Memory Lane
Look through photos of this year and reminisce of the good times and even those bittersweet moments. This is something you can do with your partner, a glass of something, recap and talk about how this year has been for both of you.
3. Zoom Party.
Let’s go virtual, now organize your friends and get the party started. Get all dressy, make a playlist, charge your laptop or phone, a drink and a party game.
Now you can jump from your virtual gossip session to game night in a matter of minutes, with nice music playing on your background. Have fun and enjoy every bit of it.
4. Count Down
Count down the hours until midnight with balloons that get popped each hour. For extra fun, write the activity you’ll do that hour on a piece of paper and roll it up and tuck it in the balloon before filling. This will be a fun thing to do with your family.
5. Host An All White Dinner Party
This is a clam classy way to ring in a new year, get dressy and set the dinning area as fancy as you can, cook or order for a three course meal and toast when the clock hit 12am.
6. Game Night Party
Bring out the board games, card games, and even video games for a New Year’s Eve party full of laughter and friendly competition. Ohhh don’t forget all the comfort foods and drinks to keep the party going. Share hugs when the clock hits 12am.
7. Letter exchange
Write a letter to your spouse or loved ones, sharing how they blessed your life this year and why you appreciate them, exchanging them when the clock strikes midnight!
8. Pray Together
A family that prays together stays together, write down your prayer topics but before you start praying, sit together as family and share your memorable moments of the year. Two hours before midnight, you pray together as a family.
