A get-together with friends via Zoom (or other videoconferencing software). Throughout the COVID crisis in 2020 and 2021, virtual parties over Zoom became popular for general get-togethers as well as a replacement for in-person holiday festivities.

There are numerous videos on YouTube that suggest ways to host a Zoom party, including recommendations for music, scenery, party favors, special activities for holidays and more.
