Christmas and New Year is just around the corner, it’s very paramount that everyone has to do what they can to protect and keep themselves safe while enjoying the celebrations.
DON’T GO OUT WITHOUT KNOWING HOW YOU’RE GOING TO GET BACK HOME
It’s party season and many of us will be enjoying nights out with friends and family, or going out into town to celebrate the new year. Make sure to plan ahead, knowing where you are going, who is going to be there and how you are going to get home. It’s good practice to carry extra money (hidden) in case of emergencies.
CONTROL YOUR SOCIAL STATUS
Don’t be tempted to broadcast to the world your location because you don’t know who’s watching you. In the age of social media, it’s easier than ever to let the world know what you are doing at any given moment. Never underestimate how far what you post online can travel. Discussing your holiday plans on social media could potentially lead predators to your location, or even burglars to your empty home.
. DON’T WALK WITH BOTH HEADPHONES IN
It’s common for of us to travel with headphones but completely blocking out the sounds surrounding you is quite dangerous. You might not know if someone or something is approaching you from behind, your ears are your warning.
. USE THE LIGHTED ROUTES
Avoid walking through open and dark spaces, it may take too longer but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Aside being security conscious, This year’s Christmas is going to be quite different too because the disease Covid-19 is still lingering around and some people will decide to stay at home when there are some large festivals they would gather together to celebrate like the past years, including Thanksgiving Day, weddings and so forth. How can we safely celebrate the holiday even during the COVID-19 period? Here are some ideas offered to you to enjoy The yuletide while avoiding the three C’s which are CONTACT with infected person(s), in CLOSED poorly ventilated area and CROWDED spaces.
. HOLD A FAMILY PARTY
Instead of going outside for having a holiday, you can plan an indoor family party safely with your family members or you can invite one or two of your friends to join the party. But make sure all the invited people are completely healthy and are not getting infected by coronavirus. By having some delicious meals and chatting happily, you can also have a nice Christmas holiday this year.
. GO ON A ROAD TRIP
If you consider that it is not meaningful to spend Christmas holiday at home but want to go on a trip and spend nice time with your family, then you can choose to go on a road trip. Staying in car and going to the places where there are less people, you can enjoy a safe time because by staying in car or having less contact with others can make sure you won’t have large possibility of getting infected by the virus.
. HAVE A MOVIE NIGHT WITH FAMILY
The first option for many people to spend their Christmas holiday is to stay at home and have a movie night with family members. By staying at home and enjoy a nice Christmas, you can also have a very nice, warm, and safe Christmas holiday even if you can’t travel or go for shopping as you always do.
. HAVE VIDEO/AUDIO CALLS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILIES
If you are living alone and could not stay with your family or friends this Christmas, you can plan to have video or audio calls with them for sharing your lives, special moments or emotions when you stay at home during this period by yourself. Try and make full use of the social media platforms and have a good communications with your beloved families and friends during this special festival holiday!
