This holiday season is going to be a little different from years past, but that doesn’t mean you have to dial down your holiday spirit! IDENTITY Reno has some creative suggestions for celebrating the holidays this year!
Throw a Virtual Party
Google Hangouts, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, Houseparty – there are plenty of services that allow you to hangout virtually. Host a virtual gift exchange, hold an ugliest holiday sweater contest, read some of your favorite holiday stories, or just sit and catch up. Even if you can’t be together during the holidays, you can still do many of the same things you usually do with a little ingenuity!
Drive-Thru Holiday Lights
Drive 10 miles out from IDENTITY Reno to Hidden Valley to see some of the most spectacular holiday decorations imaginable. Celebrating its 38th year, the Hidden Valley Parade of Lights is an annual competition where homeowners compete – and awe many passersby – to see who can create the most fantastical display. Lucky for us, we just get to enjoy the show.
Create Collaborative Playlists
Is your family or friend group super into music? Collaborate to put together a holiday-themed playlist on Spotify. Listening to holiday songs you’ve compiled as a group is a great way to reflect on the good times you’ve had and the people who mean the most to you.
