A lot of people are worried about Xmas, would forming a family only household bubble not be better, have your family Xmas and then go home...

That's so true, also so we want to have one day where we can see family followed by a further month of lockdown? I would rather have a small Christmas, as let's face it this year has been a bit of a write off, followed by normality

Why is it safer to form a bubble with different households of family members than households of friends? The friends might have been working from home and not mixing. The family members might have front line jobs, in contact with a hundred people a week.

Cancel Christmas.

We did it years ago.

Mum was very ill, hospitalised and so we cancelled Christmas and when she go back to normal in June, it was decorations, tree up and full Christmas dinner in her house, it was brilliant.

Its not safer, It a personal choice on who people want to see at Xmas, if we are given a choice of mixing with one other household, you can choose family or friends. I'd rather this than 6 households mixing willy nilly at Xmas.

The six households mixing was never a safe idea.

Hopefully some of those people will have close friends, but I know lots do not, Xmas normally can be a lonely time for a lot of people. This is why the day centres providing Xmas meals are important, but whether they will go ahead is very doubtful

The government's relaxation of rules at Christmas is NOT a good idea.

This is all about saving lives....I think we can all manage to forego one festive season by keeping apart where possible.

Therefore, there'll be much more to celebrate next year.....with our loved ones healthy and a potentially successful vaccine.

Covid may be the unwanted gift you give to Great Aunt Maude when she spends Xmas day with you. Is THAT really worth it for one day?

Agree, let's postpone Xmas until June.

"Not everyone has family or have no family living close to them."

Yep, this.

My closest family are two hours away. I could spend part of the day with my best friend, her parents and her daughter which I would love, but our health is more important than company. I will see my best friend and her daughter at some point during the festive period. But I might end up working in the morning (if we're open!) then coming home, having the presents I have, stuffing myself with food and watching TV for the rest of the day. Which I'm okay with.

This 100 times.

I can't genuinely understand the rush to push people back together again having spent 9 months trying to keep them apart...

There may be a notion that a special day together may help.... But I suspect its considered more a good will gesture to try and win a bit of public support. Can't blame them for that but any right thinking person would surely prefer to write this year off and have a national holiday sometime in August when hopefully we can enjoy it more safely.

And do you really think sensible and trusted adults are immune to this virus?. That is more or less saying that those who have had or died from covid have only themselves to blame.

I have a support bubble with one person, which is allowed as I live by myself so I think I couldn't go to my parents anyway because they live in a different council area to me. Got a feeling it will just be myself at home this year and I'll just call my parents on Xmas day. It's not worth the risk going to their home just for one day. I'd rather we all stayed safe

So three weeks ago they were fine to be in a bubble with us, but won't be OK until Boris has given a nod again ?

As for your ridiculous assumption of blame, statically we have more chance of being killed in a car accident than dying from covid.

Gee, it's almost as if circumstances change in the middle of a pandemic. Yet again, another person spelling out why they apparently know better than the government and the scientists because they aren't prepared to give up anything for the benefit of others.

They are indeed, depending on the rules at the time, I will willingly spend Xmas apart from my parents if it means my 94 year old nan doesn't have to spend it alone.

See this is the problem. Just because someone thinks they can safely meet family members on Christmas day doesn't mean they want to go and fuck someone.

I suppose that's them problem with a swingers forum.

"A lot of people are worried about Xmas, would forming a family only household bubble not be better, have your family Xmas and then go home..."

I can wish all I like but it's not going to happen: it's not even open for discussion.

My eldest and her family live in Wales. My sister lives in Milan. My two other daughters live within walking distance: one is six months pregnant the other is a single mum of two.

We are a close family but also pragmatist. I had loads planned for this year: 30th memorial for my only son, my 60th, visit to my sister in Milan, a week in Wales...I saw my two youngest on my birthday, lunch in the garden, no touching.

Christmas is my favourite time of year. My other half loathes Christmas, has no family and sees it as another day. Just typing this I'm finding myself getting emotional and I'm not a weepy person.

It's been a tough year in isolation, I get by knowing there has to be an end. I didn't sacrifice the year to blow it for one day at Christmas.

My family are off the same mindset so we will celebrate in our own homes.

As winter and prolonged time indoors hasn't really happened much yet, with cold months to come, it seems better to put priority onto the gift of sustaining life, rathe than a virus for others. We can have our get togethers as safer times and ways come. If people have sustained time at home with furlough etc, it's potentially easier to fix getting together.

Is Christmas for getting together, giving gifts, sustained relaxation etc for you and others? For younger children it's magical but they are also learning from us and are flexible.

A quieter time, fewer people together at a time and then mixing bit by bit, is better than people who don't know they are sick, passing it amongst each other.

We've had the pain of the year and wasting a lot of that, when safer times approach, seems dogmatic and obstinate. This year is still light in its impact compared to what many of our elder generations who have lost lives this year, went through during the world war 2 times. Adults then would have dreamed of the abundance and freedoms we have today and would have been saddened by our willingness to throw wellbeing away that some show, in order to be rigid in their habits.

We had Christmas this summer just in case we can't meet up next month. I'm still hopeful we can though.

I'll be having Christmas dinner on my own. It's fine. I did it last year, too. Is it really that bad to not visit all & sundry??

I usually go to Scotland for new year, to stay with my sister (my only family) but looks like I'll not be able to this year. Even so, I'm still not risking seeing anyone.

But at least I'll be safe and not passing anything on to anyone.
