What is a virtual Christmas party?

Quite simply, a celebration where each participant will enjoy a party at home through their devices. It does not matter if it’s a company celebration or a family gathering.

Now that you decided to have a virtual Christmas party is time to start planning all the important details. First, choose the platform where the party will be hosted. There are many platforms, each with its own features: Zoom, Google Meet, Messenger Chat Room, Microsoft Teams, and many more. For example, Zoom has an interesting part of putting a Christmas background to set the holiday mood.
