Social media has changed almost everything including the way we celebrate Christmas. This is not surprising because there are smartphones everywhere and there is no way the traditional way of Christmas festivities can continue. So, how has social media changed the way we celebrate Christmas? Here are five ways.

Prep up your accounts

To put you in the Christmas mood is to prep up your accounts to reflect the season. You can simply change your profile picture on Facebook or Twitter with Santa. You can even take a selfie of yourself wearing a Christmas cap.

Offer free gifts on social media

Many organizations and social media influencers make their followers happy by rewarding them with tickets and gifts. This is just to appreciate them. These organizations use this strategy to ensure their social media followers remain loyal.

Send season’s greetings

These days very few people send physical cards to friends and family. But with the internet, you can get Christmas cards online to send to your followers and friends.

Document festivities

Today, Christmas memories can easily be documented by taking videos and pictures of the festivities by posting it on Facebook. If you don’t delete it, you can view it anytime you want.

Countdown to midnight

This may be unusual but some social media addict countdown to 12 a.m. to ensure they are the first ones to wish their followers and friends to a merry Christmas. So, if you cannot leave your home to a countdown event, then social media is your best friend for Christmas countdown.
