From Zoom, to FaceTime, to House Party, there are so many ways to "see" family and friends virtually during this holiday season. People do not need to be physically in the same room to enjoy each other's company.
For some families that live far away from each other, a virtual holiday gathering may even be easier—not to mention less costly—than an in-person celebration. Instead of flying in from different cities, states, or even from different countries, everyone can safely meet up online.
It might not be quite the same, but virtual gatherings still offer friends and family the opportunity to enjoy many of the same fun holiday activities—such as crafting, cooking, or even a family game night—that they'd do in person.
Artists and writers have already created online formats for holiday celebrations, from holiday bingo to virtual holiday trivia.
