Have a Holiday Movie Marathon

Do this with a backyard projection (with covers, fire pipes, sweaters, etc.) via the tv, the Netflix Party or the quarantine pod on the sofa. This will take you to your own backyard. Take the Chex Party Mix, pretzel M&M treatments, gingerbread cookies or a treat from your family and add in your favorite holiday movies and TV shows with your egg- or hot chocolate and dinner.

Sing Christmas karaoke

You don't have to become a musical family or group of friends to enjoy Christmas karaoke holiday tones. Take a note of this game by investing in a micro karaoke.

Attend a socially distanced outside event

Seek a list of local holiday activities in your town journal or website. You might visit a Christmas tree outside a holiday market or another socially remote outdoor event.

Drive-in pantomime/cinema

In the festive season, pantomimes and Christmas cinemas are one of the best traditions in UK. However it is now not possible to have hundreds of people seated in the same room because of social distance limits.

You can get around this with a drive-in version. You simply need a screen that is big sufficient to show the film or to host the stage, a sound system and an area for the workers to enter. The big thing about this is that you should make it child-friendly so that children can enter the event and ride in a car with their parents. Or you could invite pairs.
