The holiday season is about more than just gifts, seasonal rom coms, and glittery lights. December is a time to show appreciation for the people in your life that make your world a special place. It’s true that many of us won’t be able to spend this joyous time of year with all of our loved ones, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be together in spirit.
This week, we’re focusing on all the ways that you can stay connected with your loved ones, even from a distance. Use our list of ideas for spreading joy and cheer to friends and family around the world (because who doesn’t like a personalized letter or food delivery?); take advantage of technology and schedule a virtual Monday Mile with buddies to make extra room for holiday treats; and start planning your festive feast with our complete list of delicious plant-based versions of classic holiday recipes. This Monday, stay connected through acts of kindness.
