So happy that my partner and big family can all be together this year. We are all really close and get on brilliantly. So pleased at the news today!

How will you feel if one of your relatives becomes very sick 2 weeks later?

I’m a bit confused about the (potential) relaxation being floated but I don’t know if I’m just being really stupid. Blush

If I go and stay with my family for two weeks (but stay within that bubble, and don’t socialise outside of it) will that a) be breaking the law and b) any more risky than staying for five days?

Sorry, I just can’t work out what is sensible anymore because my head is battered by it all!

It will be interesting to see the finer details of this tomorrow. They are saying a five day window. I just imagine the M25 now.

I'm not sure my mum will wont to see us. It's just starting to kick off in local schools. We have a 100 odd cases per 100,000 but dm area is 350 odd. I dont think she will be chuffed to see my brood of kids. I'm not sure we be covid free either by then dur to the local school numbers

I'm worried about this. With a vaccine coming so soon is it really worth taking the risk to mix 3 households? I would rather wait a few more months. No, it's not easy not seeing family but neither is getting covid...

I'm worried that we will feel pressured by some parts of our family to meet up. But they are the ones who haven't been careful at all throughout the pandemic and even grumble about having to wash their hands! Not sure how to handle this without offending them, but I just don't want to take the risk for my family.

Hopefully the more intelligent will realise that just because you could doesn't mean you should.
It's legal to throw 1000 plastic bottles into the bin every day. But we're all in trouble if you do.

I didn't particularly want Christmas saved. That said we aren't going visiting or having any visitors because we would like to try and stay safe. We haven't been careful since April just to blow it all at this point.

Good news. However doesn't help us - if we were to see anyone it would have been before the 24th or after the 28th as my family lives too far away and we spend Christmas at home.

Pandemic is over, we're past the 2nd peak. All the data shows that. Christmas mixing will make no difference in the long term.

Sadly a complete dumbing down of science and maths education has led to some of the opinions on here.

Anyone who genuinely thinks this is a good thing is seriously deluded! Cannot believe some people.
