Ideas for your Christmas program
Our team has planned a digital Christmas party this year and I’m already looking forward to it! A Christmas party is usually meant to be a casual get together. Sometimes fancier, sometimes more casual but the important thing is that you are together.
In general, you should discuss topics such as the dress code and the general schedule with your team beforehand:
- Is it okay to wear one’s favorite Christmas sweater or should it be a little fancier?
- Are you planning a joint activity or are you just chatting casually?
- And what about food and drinks?
Our team has agreed that we would like to spend a casual evening together. Preferably with a Christmas outfit, but that is not a requirement. As far as food and drink are concerned, it’s up to the individual. It also depends on the time, whether you want to have a cozy round of cookies or fine drinks and appetizers.
We thought about playing something together. Games like Skribble are a good idea here, where someone has to draw given words and everyone else can guess using the chat. But also charades or taboo would be potential games that are digitally possible. If you want to make the whole thing more of a team-building activity, you could prepare boxes that are sent to all employees in advance and contain materials for a joint baking or craft activity. Or how about a small award show? All team members vote anonymously and crown the most beautiful Christmas outfit, the most festive video background and the quirkiest Christmas mug.
Virtual Christmas party – tips on how to behave
How do I behave at an online Christmas party? What do I need to consider? Here are the most important questions and answers for you.
How do you get started with an event like this?

A merry get together
I hope I was able to give you some ideas for your digital company Christmas party. Even though everything will be different this year, a virtual Christmas party also has its advantages.
Normally, at such celebrations, you don’t always necessarily manage to have a chat with everyone present. This is different here. Of course, not everyone can talk at once, but there will be a joint conversation, which also offers opportunities. In any case, a plus point for the virtual Christmas party.
In the end, each team should make its own concept and just have a good time together.
On that note – have fun at your virtual Christmas party. 🎅🤶
