10. Virtual office Christmas party ideas

Instead of your traditional office Christmas party, encourage your coworkers to join you in a Christmas charity event. Create a virtual casino night to raise money, with the proceeds going to a non-profit organization of your choice. You can offer your coworkers a sum of money to use at your virtual casino, or they can donate their own. This is a great way to get your staff members involved and share the joy of Christmas.
