While we hoped that 2022 would be greeted with a sequins dress and a drunken Uber ride home, this New Year’s is going to look pretty familiar to those who spend December 31st at home 365 days ago. However, though we may not be able to hit the bars running, we can still enjoy ourselves from the comfort of our homes. Here are 8 ways you can celebrate NYE without leaving your house!
GET DRESSED UP
All dressed up and nowhere to go may sound like a tagline for a failed evening with friends – but it can also be quite fun! Tonight, suit up and stay in – because you owe yourself a good in-mirror “how you doing” after the year we’ve just had.
There’s nothing better than drinking, sleeping and waking up after a party in your own home – but who said that it’s the company that makes the event? Whether you’re alone, with one or two friends or your significant other tonight pop a bottle and celebrate! After all, you did just survive 2021!
WATCH FIREWORKS ONLINE
Every community has its celebration, and to our delight, many are streaming them online! Check out your official city website for more information to tune in to one of Canada’s biggest virtual displays Toronto’s HUGE NYE showcase which starts at 8:30 MST.
Whether you order in or cook up something extravagant, there are no rules saying that you have to hit a resto to indulge in some good food. Go on, friends, open up your Skip The Dishes App, scroll yourself silly on UberEats and dine like the royalty you are!
ATTEND A PARTY IN THE METAVERSE
Dubbed “Metafest” Canadians can explore virtual NFT galleries, check out rooftop lounges and can even attend live performances from home this year. Sure, this sounds a little outlandish – but we are entering the future, so… now is as good a time as any to embrace it!
