This year, Christmas will be a different time for American families. You'll likely have a small social distanced gathering with a few family members, or you’ll be chatting with loved ones over a Zoom call during dinner and drinks. But you can still bake Christmas cookies, find a moment to feel the holiday cheer, and wrap up your day with a holiday movie. But whatever activities your family is planning for the holidays, Origin HiFi can help foster feelings of family and togetherness, no matter how far away some of us are.
Enjoy some Christmas Karaoke
A Media Room is a casual space filled with comfortable seating where the whole family can come together to enjoy movies, a sports event, or a board game. It does so much more than play a movie from a DVD player. Now you can access YouTube, Netflix, Spotify, and more! This year, it’s easy to enjoy classic Christmas carols by streaming karaoke songs from YouTube on the large flat-screen TV of your Media Room, and you’ll still feel the same magic from years past with some laughter.
Getting in the Holiday Spirit
Whether you’re hosting a small gathering of people or just spending time with your immediate family, warm and bright music can really enhance the holiday! With home automation, you can control speakers throughout the home to play the music that gets you in a mood of festive cheer. Adjust which rooms play music through voice assistants or an app in your pocket. It’s much easier to see the positive side of life when you have great tunes; after all, fewer guests in your home will mean less stress as you finish preparations for your Christmas dinner.
Virtual Happy Hour
You'll likely be in a virtual happy hour or dinner with extended family members, and perhaps your children will have their own virtual “Kids Table” call as well. You'll want to ensure your network speeds are at their optimal, so you don't experience lagging audio or fuzzy audio that interrupts conversations. You don't usually spend your Christmas dinner asking everyone to repeat themselves, so why start this year? With multiple members of the family streaming Zoom calls on their devices, you don't want your network to fail in the middle of dinner! Prepare ahead by doing some research on your router; it may be time for an upgrade.
As you finish off your Christmas dinner, it's time to sit back and relax. Heading over to your dedicated Home Theater for a holiday movie can briefly transport you back to the cinema. Pop some popcorn, get some warm blankets for your spacious recliners, and enjoy A Christmas Story on your powerful HD TV. With speakers embedded into all four walls, the surround sound will transport you into the film and make you forget you've been at home all this time, safe and sound.
Whether you’d like to invest in whole-home audio, renovate your living room into a media room, or need a bit of help upgrading your router, we’ve got you covered. The benefits of your home will extend well past Christmas Day onward to a happy, healthier 2021. If you’re feeling prepared to make some adjustments to your home just in time for the holiday season, feel free to contact the team at Origin HiFi to help you get started today!
