To not care what the government decided are Christmas…
124

Oftenithinkaboutit · 29/11/2021 09:59

Because my (small) family and I will be sticking precisely to our plans to get together. Just the children and me on Christmas Day

And then my 3 siblings and 3 children on Boxing Day.

All double vaccinated. 4 children and 1 adult have had covid (very mildly). The others, who knows!

Does t matter what’s decided. We will do exactly as planned

Why the "small" and "double vaccinated"?

You can still be spreading. Everyone is pretty much double vaccinated and it's still spreading.

I did the same last year and will do this year. You have to make your own decisions.

Surely there must be some of us who are going to continue with Christmas plans come what may the government decreed?

I’m not talking 50 people party here

I’m talking 4 adults and 5 children

They have absolutely no intention of restricting Christmas.

Agreed
Just hoping the ones with no sense of perspective don’t shout so loudly they are forced to listen

I'm hopeful they won't put in restrictions for Christmas but regardless, we're seeing family on Christmas day anyway.

I'm just praying panto goes ahead this year

Do what you want.
Whether double or triple vaccinated, you could still be spreading the virus.

I think if you don, just keep it to yourself

I’m not sure if you are telling us because you have realised this - using an anonymous forum because you know you can’t tell anyone in RL - or what?

@PurpleDaisies

Double vaccinated dh and I just had covid.

And - felt rough, tired, flu feeling etc?
But nothing serious
And not a whiff of a need of hospital care?

Well that's all fine.
Personally I am struggling to have much enthusiasm for the whole Xmas circus this year.
Hope you have a nice day.

Of course not OP, everyone I know is thinking the same.

I doubt it will come to that though.
