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

Am I being unreasonable?

AIBU

Do what you want op. Everyone else certainly will.
All you're doing by broadcasting it is welcoming people to call you out.

Talk about jumping the gun. Nothing's been decided here so what do you gain from airing your "controversial" libertarian views, except to start a bunfight?

Do it or don't do it. No need to show off about it.

We have plans, which we will abandon if necessary, in order to stay as safe as possible.

I agree with you. Everything will be normal here too.

For many reasons, I will not be complying with any instructions the government might decide to issue regarding whether or not I can see my family. I did that once before and almost paid a very high price.

Oh. Ok.

I don’t think anyone actually said anything about outlawing gatherings for Christmas…. Good to see you have your answer prepared though.

We're being softened up. I can see some kind of restrictions coming for Christmas. Can't see many following it though, other than the natural rule followers and those, for whatever reason, are still very anxious.

@TheKeatingFive

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

I doubt it will come to that though.

Not according to this thread Grin

Given that pubs and clubs are still full to bursting, with no indication as yet they will be closed (fingers crossed it stays that way) I think we're some way from banning families mixing at Christmas. If they don't ban it, no issue. If they do, you get to enjoy feeling like a rebel. Win win.

You are being unreasonable to tell us you’re double vaccinated. You are just as likely to spread covid as the unvaccinated.

Otherwise. Do what you like. Literally nobody cares

So you felt the need to start a thread telling us that you won't comply with hypothetical restrictions then sift through someone else's posts to snipe at their description of their health.

Nice.

You seem to be getting very antsy about something that is not even going to happen.

No one is cancelling Christmas op. We are not even social distancing for Christmas much less cruising to a full lockdown.

Relax, choose update your itunes to include your favourite songs, put up the decorations and chill out a bit.

I'm not sticking to it anymore. I'm seeing my family and friends as normal. Just won't do it in pubs if they shut again.

Basically they’re just after a barney but too scared to post on the covid board…

You’d think so

But surely you’ve seen the threads of mumsnetters beside themselves re what Jane 4 doors down is doing or Peter in accounts

Maybe post on the Coronavirus board (or the Christmas board)

You are talking about a situation that literally doesn't exist at the moment.

What a strange thread. A big announcement declaring your intention to do something that you'll probably be able to do anyway. Brilliant.
