While last year, it was a tricky time to celebrate and be with our loved ones during Christmas, this year we may or may not choose to spend this time at home. We can start by celebrating at work and have some fun virtual game sessions on Zoom. After all, we all need some Zoom icebreakers since most of us are working remote or hybrid.

So, let’s turn on the holiday spirit by downloading these beautiful and colourful Christmas Zoom backgrounds. While some will take you back to Walt Disney, your favourite Christmas movies like Home Alone, The Grinch or Sesame Street, others will turn your room into a Christmas wonderland. Let’s begin our little virtual holiday fun!

How to use Zoom backgrounds

Before we get into the Zoom backgrounds, let’s refresh our memory and understand how to use Zoom backgrounds. It’s simple!

1. Ensure that the Zoom backgrounds feature is enabled on your account. To make sure, click on ‘Settings’, next click on ‘In Meeting (Advanced)’ and toggle on the Virtual Backgrounds button.

2. Next, download the backgrounds of your choice. Downloading a few options will help you switch to new backgrounds in between calls.

3. Once you sign in to Zoom, click on the arrow to the right side of ‘Stop Video’ button, and select "Choose a virtual background."

4. Upload the backgrounds that you like and get the party started!
