The spirit of the festive season is on the peak with Diwali upcoming. But make sure to prioritise your health and have safe celebrations at home. Virtual celebration is the new norm and although this Diwali throwing a party is a big NO, virtual celebration can light up this festival. So, here are some trending Diwali ideas.
Virtual Diwali Party
The Diwali party we had preplanned for this year has taken the most unexpected turn and virtual party is the only way to celebrate the festivities. Even if not for yourself, it is very important to prioritise the health of the elderly family members and stay at home for this year.
But that doesn’t imply Diwali has to be boring. Light up your festivities by face timing all your close friends and relatives and showing them your dazzling outfit and decorations. And not to forget, the tradition of playing cards on Diwali. The card parties can be still on with online poker games.
Ghar ki Diwali
Decorating your house with beautiful diyas and light can easily lighten up the mood. Get some ideas from Pinterest and decorate your house like never before, then click pictures every corner and show off on Instagram. Gather your family members together and talk about happy Diwali memories and old stories.
Dress up like you are going to a Bollywood Diwali party. Just because you are not going out or no relative is coming to visit you this year, doesn’t mean you don’t dress up. Remember that heavy lehenga or kurta pyjama you have selected for this year’s Diwali? Go ahead and order that. Get all decked up and click hundreds of photos with your family. Have some poses with the decorations you have put so much effort in. Dressing up instantly makes you feel better.
Send Gifts Digitally
Pandemic cannot be the excuse for not following the tradition of giving and receiving gifts on Diwali. This is a joy no one should be deprived of and hence, online gifting is the best option. There are multiple especially curated hampers for Diwali which look very pretty and fancy and surely can bring a smile on anybody’s face.
Maintain Social Distancing
We are still far away from completely wiping away this deadly disease, so let’s promise to keep a social distance. Do not overcrowded markets and shops. Try to do your Diwali shopping online from home as much as possible. Even if you go out, don’t forget your mask, sanitizer and keeping 2 arm length’s distance.
The Diwali of 2020 will be different and that is all the more reason to make it a memorable one. Keep your spirits high and celebrate this Diwali like never before. Tip: Don’t use sanitizer before lighting up the diyas as sanitizers are flammable.
