Celebrating Mother’s Day while social distancing

To say that COVID-19 changed life as we know it would be an understatement. Many people likely never imagined how much their daily routines would be affected when this novel coronavirus was just a blip on the radar at the end of 2019.

Social distancing may have become the new normal, but it doesn’t mean that holidays like Mother’s Day have to be a washout. As evidenced by holidays that have already taken place amidst social distancing guidelines, people are finding creative ways to celebrate special occasions. Here are some ways to make Mother’s Day special even while social distancing.

· Turn to social apps.

Virtual meeting applications, like Zoom, Skype and FaceTime provide invaluable opportunities to speak and connect face-to-face when in-person gatherings are not possible. They also can be used to break bread together or to play games or relay stories.

· Deliver gifts.

Take a few cues from the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus and plan to drop gifts and run. Seniors and people who have compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of contracting contagious illnesses. While it may be tempting to visit your mother or grandmother in person, even a short visit could put her health at risk. Instead, leave gifts outside the house. For added fun, hide the gifts and provide scavenger hunt clues.

· Dine out at home.

If dining out was something you typically do on Mother’s Day, replicate the experience at home. Try to recreate Mom’s favorite meal from the restaurant she loves or see if that restaurant offers curbside pickup. Transform the dining table into a restaurant table, or take the meal outdoors for some al fresco fun. Let kids serve as the wait staff.

· Spend time together.

One of the silver linings of social distancing is the opportunity for family members who reside under one roof to have more uninterrupted time together. Chances are having the kids nearby and sharing some stories and laughs together will be a perfect way for Mom to enjoy Mother’s Day.

In some cases, you all still may have to wear face masks when you get together.
