A special holiday live stream is a great way to connect and celebrate with people all around the world. In this article, we’ll unwrap our favorite free Christmas overlays that will be the perfect fit for your holiday-themed live stream. 

Countless ways to live stream your Christmas

The festive season offers opportunities to strengthen your relationships with your audience, connect with new viewers, but also help people beat seasonal loneliness by inviting them into your virtual space. Here are some of the ways you can kick of the holiday season with a special Christmas live stream:

Share your festivities and traditions

Organize a virtual Christmas party with all your followers, and invite them to join in with fun seasonal crafts and activities – like building a gingerbread house or decorating a mini Christmas tree. Some streamers will sing carols and other Christmas pop songs in a special karaoke session, while others get creative and share seasonal makeup tutorials. 

Live stream a Christmas concert

Not everyone goes caroling, and special Christmas concerts can be difficult to get to or cost a lot to attend. You can invite more viewers to rock around the Christmas tree (virtually) by live streaming your local concert, gig, or Christmas service. If you’re live streaming to YouTube, remember to record live performances so people can watch them later.

Join a holiday gaming event

The season of celebration also offers several Christmas and winter-themed gaming events. Go live as you join other gamers in events like Fortnite’s Winterfest or Hitman 3’s Holiday Hoarders. As an added bonus, popular live streaming platforms like Twitch also provide additional financial incentives for gamers to stream during the holiday season.

Host a special Christmas podcast episode 

Spruce up your regular podcasting schedule with a Christmas episode. Dress up in festive wear or a Santa hat, while covering festive topics or sharing your holiday traditions. You can boost engagement by asking your subscribers to share how they celebrate Christmas, and even read out follower submissions.

No time to deck the halls? With our free Christmas stream overlays, your next holiday live stream can be merry and bright without the additional tinsel or mistletoe. Here are our favorite free Christmas overlays for Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and other streaming platforms:
