Christmas 2020 promises to be memorable for no reason other than it is the first one Americans are spending in a pandemic in more than a century. Since COVID-19 has profoundly affected every aspect of our lives this year, it should come as no surprise that Christmas will bear the same fate.
Whether you are spending the holidays alone out of choice or because of our ‘new normal’, here are some suggested activities:
Online casino games
With a smart device or computer and an internet connection, why not add a little zing to your holidays by trying a casino online? These platforms offer loads of entertainment, giving you a choice between slots and table games. Some even provide for sports betting if that better whets your gambling appetite.
If you are playing for fun and not because you need a huge payout, it is possible to spend hours playing games at an online casino. Make small bets and take advantage of bonuses that these platforms provide new and existing players specially during Christmas time.
Observing Christmas traditions
While you might be moving to a new city and not know anyone, it is still possible to observe some common Christmas traditions. Even if it is a tiny light-up tree, have something out to remind you of this special time of year. Friends and family may have had packages delivered to you before Christmas. Do not open them until the big morning and try to video call people as you open their gifts.
Most stores are closed on Christmas Day, so ensure you have bought food ahead of time. Cooking for one or two people is a lot of effort, so that is one tradition you might want to ditch in favor of a prepared meal you only need to microwave.
Put your feet up and relax
Christmas is about family and friends, but it is also about taking time to reflect on your year. Between all that thinking, use the holidays to download the best TV shows in 2020 that you might have missed. This is the ideal time to kick back and binge-watch a few seasons of your favorite shows.
If you are alone, there will be no arguing over the remote and whose viewer choices need to be observed. For this reason, if no other, make a bowl of popcorn, put your feet up, and take advantage of the privilege.
