Your Ultimate 2020 Bucket List To Keep The Magic Alive This Christmas

Make it a December to remember. We made your ultimate 2020 bucket list with tons of Christmas activities you can do virtually with your friends to keep the holiday magic alive.

There is no need to miss out on all your favourite festive things to do this winter. You can invite your crew to a Zoom ugly sweater party or have a virtual happy hour and drink egg nog.

Another top pick is an online paint night, as you can paint in your comfy joggers. Not only are they cheap, but you'll end up with a winter-themed painting that could make a fantastic gift.

It is time to message your friends and decide which to do first.
