Millions of people are stuck in their houses, unable to meet their loved ones, the spirit of Christmas hasvanished from their lives. Spending Christmas alone can make you feel lonely and neglected.

If you are sitting on your couch alone staring at your empty house this Christmas, you are reading the right piece!

Scribbled below is a list of fun last-minute Christmas activities that you can do all alone from the comfort of your home and keep the Christmas feelings sparkling this year!

1.      Cook/Bake

Now, a traditional rum soak cake might take more than a month but a delicious coffee mug cake will only take three minutes in the microwave to cook.  Take your favourite mug, add in a tablespoon of coffee and mix it with half a cup of milk, add in 2 tablespoon of refined flour half a teaspoon of each baking powder and baking soda, 2 big tablespoons of sugar, and vegetable oil. Mix it well; pop it in the oven and Voila! You got yourself a Christmas dessert!

2.      Dance your heart out

Home alone= crazy dance moves that you are too embarrassed to do in front of people! Connect your speakers and move to the beats of your favourite party songs or just put on some soothing Christmas Carols like Silent Night, O Holy Night, Away in a Manger and feel the Christmas warmth.

3.      Online Shopping

It might be a little late to shop for gifts if you are doing it on a Christmas day but it’s never too late to treat yourself with some presents! Waiting for a book to read or a lamp to decorate, get it today. Traditionally Christmas is about giving others but self-love FTW this year!

4.      Turn to TV

If your idea of relaxing is Netflix & chill, it’s a great way to spend holidays alone. Streaming websites are full of options to watch. You can watch seasonal hallmark Christmas films or any show from the list of must watch you created and never around to start. Pop in some popcorns and get into your blankets!

5.      Connect with loved ones

Being alone doesn’t have to mean spending your Christmas alone. Gather your friends and families from around the globe, chatter and open the bottles and just talk your heart out. Holidays are a great time to reconnect with people who have been busy all year long because of hectic work commitments.

6.      Remember to Slumber

Don’t pressurise yourself for having an ideal Christmas that you always had. 2020 has been a year of uncertainty; it has made people tired physically and mentally exhausted them. The holiday season can be a great time to retrospect the whole year and take a break. Get good full night sleep and afternoon naps. Sometimes a good sleep can do lots for taking the spirits to the sky.
