Holiday parties are important for organizations. They help maintain strong connections between team members and offer them the chance to know each other outside the office environment.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, organizing large gatherings poses a significant risk to public safety. At the same time, canceling celebrations leads to relations between coworkers going cold.
A virtual event offers you the chance to provide your guests with a fun experience while maintaining social distancing and safety measures. It’s a win-win situation.
Join us in the following article, as we’ll offer you a few ideas for a virtual Christmas party this year.
1. The Holiday Game Night
This holiday season, you can turn your company meeting into a virtual game show. Minute to Win It, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Jeopardy!, Family Feud, Face Off, Deal or No Deal, Trivial Pursuit, or Name That Tune. are very popular among virtual groups.
One game you can try is the ‘virtual talent show’ – where guests get to take turns and showcase one of their talents. It’s a classic game that everyone’s familiar with and will have a blast at giving it a shot.
To add a festive touch to it, you can encourage participants to play over a glass of eggnog. As spirits rise, everyone will get competitive in trying to get the edge over their opponent.
2. Night of Christmas Carols
One way to get people into the holiday spirit is to get together and sing Christmas carols.
A virtual-sing-along does wonders to get people into a festive mood while also making them more open to interaction.
Understandably, people might hesitate to show off their vocal abilities. But don’t worry, we have the solution to this problem.
One of the best ideas for a virtual Christmas Party is to hire a professional musician to tag along with your group. The musician can kick off the songs and encourage others to sing along.
If people would rather listen, then the musician can host a virtual concert and play a selection of songs – perhaps even take requests from the audience.
3. Funny Christmas Night
This Christmas, Santa Claus isn’t a cheerful older man. That’s right, Santa is a comedian.
Interested in giving a comedic twist to your virtual party? Then you can try and emulate the same feeling of an open mic night. Open mic sessions are an excellent way to give your team a chance to try their comedic skills.
With the right setup and if your team is willing to take the mic, then you’re in for a night of laughs and gags.
If you want to see a stand-up comedy done by a professional, why not hire a virtual comedian to do an online show for your group? The Passing Zone presents Your Holiday Spectacular! They should be included in Ideas for a Virtual Christmas Party.

4. Virtual Magic Show
One of the best ways to celebrate the magic of the holidays is with a virtual magician. Ben Seidman guest stars on the Netflix Original Brainchild produced by Pharrell. He appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us on the CW network and starred in two specials on Travel Channel. He was the highest-rated performer for Princess Cruises and won the title Entertainer of the Year.
His Holiday Magic Show CAMERA TRICKS is full of incredible sleight-of-hand and psychological magic, but there’s a catch… one of Ben’s miracles will utilize a live camera trick. Can your group spot which illusion is the fake? Or does Seidman’s sleight of hand rival camera trickery? This fun hook is a fantastic way to engage your audience. The magic throughout is visually incredible and each virtual magic show finishes with a twist ending! The result of this virtual holiday magic show is a delightful and awe-inspiring program that will remind your members that there is still magic in the world.
