We’ve always been told that ‘a family that eats together, stays together.’ While this is commonly used to refer to family bonds, it applies to groups of friends too.

Spending quality time together with our loved ones helps to strengthen our bonds with each other. In our hectic life, any free day we have to spend time with the family and friends is a good time to catch up, reconnect and take a breather together.

With the holidays coming up, let’s do something exciting outside! After all, what’s important is to create an atmosphere where everyone can have a shared moment together.

Creating shared moments to remember

In any celebration, it’s always fun to share a meal. However, it’ll be much more exciting to try new food or a new restaurant with our loved ones.

The gastronomic experience can be made livelier by adding activities such as playing a round of simple games while waiting for food to be served.

It can be fun trivia about each other and the winners get treated to another plate of dessert.

The celebration can continue with a night of laughter at a comedy show in the city. Other than trying out new food, checking out the various comedy clubs is another fun way to bond and create new memories together.

Heading to the movie theatre is an enjoyable alternative too. There are plenty of movies to choose from and the gang has plenty of time to pick apart and have a movie discussion session after.

The thing about the holidays is that sometimes our best efforts just don’t go according to plan.

If you find yourself having to spend the holidays at home, you can still capture the magic of trying new things by cooking up a storm at home.

With a host of recipes shared online, you can curate a special menu featuring some new food and flavours just for your loved ones.

You can even loop in the gang to help out with food preparations and to make the hours leading up to mealtime livelier.

No matter which activities you choose to do, remember to take plenty of photos of everyone having a fun time together!

Why not organize a photoshoot or make your own photo booth to spice things up too?

It’s your turn to make it happen

Planning a get-together can be tricky when things are booked up this festive season but what if the gang has some help?
