Today is the only day for seeing relatives.
Today people are allowed to form a Christmas Bubble with two other households although the. Government are urging caution.
It was originally planned to be a five day break but last Saturday Boris Johnson announced the tightening of restrictions to just Christmas Day and reminded people that no there is no easing of restrictions around New Years.
Boris Johnson said
“As Prime Minister, it is my duty to take the difficult decisions, to do what is right to protect the people of this country.
Given the early evidence we have on this new variant of the virus, and the potential risk it poses, it is with a heavy heart that I must tell you we cannot continue with Christmas as planned.
In England, those living in tier 4 areas should not mix with anyone outside their own household at Christmas, though support bubbles will remain in place for those at particular risk of loneliness or isolation.
Across the rest of the country, the Christmas rules allowing up to three households to meet will now be limited to Christmas Day only, rather than the five days as previously set out.
As before, there will be no relaxation on 31 December, so people must not break the rules at New Year.”
