As we are all looking towards 2021 from behind closed doors, this new year celebrations will be somewhat limited. Yes, it may be marginally quieter – but it can still be fun. Read on to discover everything you need to welcome in the new year, in style.
There’s no denying it – for most, the new year celebration goes hand-in-hand with alcohol. Why not bring the bar to you? Get all your favourite booze, or ingredients to make cocktails and have a laugh recreating the movie ‘Cocktail’. Buy yourself some nibbles to go with your drinks and you are set for some good times.
Card games (i.e., poker) can be loads of fun. Play for clothes, dares or money.
You can still have a laugh with your nearest and dearest – just grab your laptop and meet for some friendly banter and drinks (at a distance). The good thing about this is at least if the convo gets boring you can ‘lose connection’ without losing a friendship.
Picking up a cheap mic and conducting a sing-a-thon karaoke with your family is loads of fun. Just remember that if its particularly loud, you still have to bypass your neighbours in the morning. Another time the 2m rule is advantageous.
Okay, you can either watch the firework celebrations on the TV or you can buy a few and set them off in your back yard (with safety measures in place obvs). Second thoughts, maybe the tele is a better option…(thinking of the neighbours’ fence).
