As 2020 comes to a close, it’s important to keep vigilant about the current safety restrictions, especially while celebrating the end of a difficult year. Yes, the parties will look different this year, though there is still a lot to celebrate and be thankful for. Making it through this year is an accomplishment on its own!

This time of year is even more special than ever as we limit our guest lists and remain socially distant from many loved ones. But to help it feel more normal, we put together a list of 21 things to do from home on the last evening of the year.
