The holidays this year look different than years past - there’s no denying that. However, different does not have to mean cancelled.

The holidays this year look different than years past - there’s no denying that. However, different does not have to mean cancelled. 

Make this holiday season a memorable one with some of these joyful ideas! 

Things you can do with family and friends over zoom/video platforms:

  • Watch holiday movies with family or friends over Netflix Teleparty
  • Have a gingerbread building zoom-party with family or friends 
  • Host a virtual party or games night (ie. Jackbox TV, House Party)
  • Christmas dinner/ mocktail party - each person making a different recipe


Things you can do on your own: 

  • Create a secret santa with nearby colleagues or friends, and deliver to their doorstep
  • Make a holiday playlist, play it as loud as you want, and dance like nobody’s watching 
  • Go for a walk around your neighbourhood to discover all the holiday light displays
  • Try a new festive recipe (or stick to a meal you already love to make) 
  • Mail a card or gift to someone you care about
  • Bake your favourite holiday desserts
    • Consider dropping some off “just because” for your neighbour
  • Find a drive-through light show near you
  • Explore if there are any volunteer options near you
  • Donate to a local food bank

Wherever and whoever you may be celebrating with this year, we encourage you to take some time to relax, unwind and enjoy the little things in life that you may otherwise not have time for. Prioritize your mental health, get outside as often as you can, and show yourself some love and compassion. 

As always, if you ever need someone to talk to, our partners at Kids Help Phone are always here to listen.
