National Friendship Day: here's how you can celebrate virtually

Aug 02, 2020 13:07 IST

The first Sunday of August is celebrated as Friendship Day every year, but the Covid-19 outbreak has forced people to mark the day virtually this year. If you're at home stuck in a lockdown, here are some ways that you can mark the day with your closest friends. #1 Organise a virtual party You can literally have a party online. Just get dressed, decorate your room with some lights to set the mood, get your favorite tracks on a playlist and you're set. You can dance together at your respective homes and who knows you might even end up becoming viral sensations. #2 Play Tambola or Antakshari Relive the days of your childhood, with some good old tambola. There are digital versions of the game and you will need a pen and tambola tickets to get started. If Tambola is not your thing, there's always Antakshari. If you have an uninterrupted Internet connection, get on a group video call and battle it out with your friends. #3 Get together for movie marathons Gather your popcorn, log onto a video conference call and binge watch your favourite shows with your best friends. #4 Sharpen your culinary skills If you and your friends love cooking, put on your aprons and whip up a scrumptious cake, chocolate chip cookies or anything that you love eating, for a Sunday binge with your buddies. #5 Joint book reading sessions If you and your friends are bookworms and miss exchanging notes on the books you have read, you can get together for online book reading sessions, to re-read the best portions of your favourite books.
