Amid lockdown, the way people of the country are following the guidelines and celebrating the festivals at their homes with simplicity, all this is motivational and praiseworthy,” PM Modi said.
It is a time for various festivals in different parts of the country. Starting from Mothers day to fathers day to Raksha Bandhan and many other festivals. With the increasing cases of COVID-19 and conditional lockdown across the country, it doesn’t seem possible that you will have normal celebrations throughout this year.
Here are some ways you can connect with your family and friends and celebrate the festivals by not violating the guidelines by the government.
-Tune in virtual ceremonies; If you are used to public ceremonies, search for video links, articles or podcasts from your community that help you connect with commonly seen traditions.
-Thanks to technology that helps you stay connected with your loved ones in real time. Please your loved ones on the special occasion via a video call. It enables you to celebrate together and create a happy moment.
-If your loved ones are really sad about not being together on the upcoming occasion, surprise them with a personal video message. The video is sure to make him feel better and bring a sweet smile to his face. While they had no idea about your plan, it would be a pleasant surprise.
-Cooking together on any occasion adds sweetness to the celebration. Together you can go for something sweet. Or if you are too busy to cook due to some reasons then you can always order online. As the auspicious occasion of raksha bandhan is approaching, order rakhi with sweets online or get it delivered to your loved ones doorsteps and make the celebrations special.
-Say it with a card; ECards are the new way of wishing someone on any occasion. There are a wide variety of cards available for every occasion. You can send it directly to your loved ones inbox.
-You can make use of a program called Zoom, which allows you to invite multiple people to a group video chat and celebrate together.
-There is nothing like music to make a special occasion even more memorable. Being on lockdown does not mean you can change and have a good time on your special day. Tune into your favorite music and get into the groove.
-Another way to celebrate the occasion amid lockdown is to send gifts online. For instance, if you are celebrating Raksha bandhan, as part of Rakhi celebrations, you can send your brother online rakhi delivery. There are many online portals who are open for online rakhi delivery. With a plethora of options to choose from kundan rakhi, mauli rakhi, diamond rakhi, silver rakhi, to personalized rakhi choose the best one for your brother. So make this Rakhi unforgettable with online shopping.
– Pray to god with your family at your homes. Restrict yourself from going out and engaging in community prayer.
So, these were some ways to celebrate special occasions amid lockdown. Stay home and stay safe!
