Amidst the orders of self-quarantine, social distancing, closure of schools and businesses, special occasions and holidays are being celebrated in different ways.

The timing of COVID-19 has led to Japan closing down schools during a big transitional event — graduation. By the time that the quarantine is lifted, it will already be the start of a new school year for students. Not waiting to see if a formal ceremony will be scheduled at a later date, a group of kids decided to hold their own graduation in Minecraft.

 

 
Thanks to Minecraft being incorporated into various school teaching programs across the world, this is the ideal game for classmates to gather and play with. These students went all out by making a graduation hall, taking class pictures, and even editing a video of the venue.

 

 
Have a wedding, birthday party, anniversary, and more approaching? Let’s take a note from these kids and host it in our favorite online multiplayer game.
