Default Will Covid affect your Christmas plans?

Luckily we're allowed 3 households to mix for Christmas and we're allowed travel between counties from tomorrow so our Christmas Day will go ahead how it would have done anyway (Brother and Sister in Law can travel to us from Dublin/Mother and step dad can come for dinner too).

What about everyone else? Do you have to make changes to plans? Will you ignore the guidelines if your plans would break the rules?

No, then again I made none this year.
It will be solidly only my Mum, myself and a Cousin who shares my home.

NO ONE visiting us and none of us visiting others either.

That's very sensible.
I usually work during the holidays, but not this year.
I really need some time off this time for myself.

We're allowed to travel abroad, but I don't think it's safe.
I'm waiting to get the vaccine first.

I think it may be a requirement to have had the vaccine anyway if you want to get on a plane (after it's properly rolled out )

Unhappy

Well i was woken up early this morning by ex-mrs LT in a panic as the headteacher and deputy at her school have tested pos and a teacher she works with so she had to go and get tested yesterday. Stupid teacher was ill last week but didnt think it was anything so went in. if she tests pos then my Christmas is cancelled I got her to do her temp and its ok but being a slight hypochondriac the stress has her thinking she has it. -it took an hour to talk her down.

Bloody hell fire

Since when have people ever listened to guidelines and rules ?, sadly I think plenty will ignore it all and still meet and invite big gatherings this Christmas .

Obviously some people will use common sense and keep their distance though, just ashame others won't.

Apart from my son coming home (which he already has) we won't be seeing anyone, my Aunt who is elderly is on her own and would usually go off to a hotel for Christmas with her friend and we discussed her coming but on balance we all decided given she will be in the first wave of vaccines it would be silly to risk it at this late stage, so we will drive down Christmas Eve with a dinner on a plate and some bits so she doesn't have to cook, other than that if we do meet friends it will be in the park with the dog at a distance

either that or a covid test before you go, and before you come back which is what is happening at the moment, in Spain anyway

so its a considerable extra expense if you want to travel anywhere.

That's the sad part isn't, a lot of elderly people will have to spend the Day alone, at least she will get to see you when you drop her dinner in, that's nice

I haven't yet Niamh.
I had a lot of work commitments still to see through, here in UK.

My Mum has in the home we decided to have there, I was to follow, so she got set there.
However when this virus was mentioned earlier in the year, and it was clear from Italy etc it would be hitting here.
I brought my Mum to be with me here in England.

Where she's been since before the first lockdown.
Since she has a heart condition.

She's misses it.
However in this crazy and scary year she's been safe with me, that's the important thing for me.

I still have the intention to head there after though, after this virus is hopefully more controlled or near to being better anyway.

To be brutally honest, no.

I have four other siblings and we’re all going home for Christmas, so it will be 5 households. But I don’t think my parents would want to pick which two kids she wants back.

We are not seeing my granddad however (unless he gets called up for the vaccine this week), which we normally would do, and so it’s impacted it in that sense
