2020 has been a year that will definitely be discussed in history books in upcoming years. It was a global pandemic, with soaring unemployment rates, it had many people moving from crowded cities into less crowded suburbs for safety reasons, many people learned just how hard it can be to work from home, kids went to virtual learning, and we can’t forget the run on toilet paper and paper towels! It has been a challenging year, to say the least.

Due to the current situation that is still happening throughout the world, most people are finding alternative ways to celebrate the New Year safely. Instead of going out to parties, hitting the bars, taking in concerts or other ideas, many people are staying home to celebrate New Year’s this year.

So, how can you celebrate this safely at home? We have a few ideas that you can use to make ringing in 2021 still one that you are happy with!

1. Do a small intimate party for your home with the kids. Pick a theme and make new food around this theme…

2. Want to see everyone that you love? Then Zoom with them for the New Year! You can all send each other packages to open that day that contains plastic champagne glasses or whatnot so that you can toast together.

3. Take some time to really think about the past year and what you hope 2021 will bring and journal this. For those who are not in a partying mood, this can be a great therapeutic way to get through these feelings.

While the celebrations may not be the same, take a deep breath and relax. 2020 is almost over, and we can start fresh in 2021! If starting fresh includes moving in the Long Island or surrounding areas, then Quality Moving & Storage is here for all your moving needs!
