I saw a Christmas tree in someones window today, a bit early, but we need something to cheer us up.  December 1st is early enough.

This is all Prince Albert's fault.

Most of the folks around here go for decorations big time. Flashing coloured lights draped across the front of the house, tree in the window and so on. And they are all Indian or Pakistani.

What does their nationality have to do with anything? Lots of exterior lighting round here in my predominantly white area..

Because Christmas is supposed to be a Christian celebration and many from the sub-continent are not Christians?

I'm not being vindictive or trying to be controversial but if they lift restrictions to allow family get togethers they must be insane.

I don't think it will make any significant difference to anything. People aren't going to mix if they are ill.

I'm so glad my family came up here last month and we did Christmas then. For once I did the right thing. ;D  On the actual day it will depend on the weather as to what we do. If it's nice we'll be off for a few hours with the dog and the horses and home to a roast beef dinner, if it's lousy weather then it'll be inside with the TV or DVDs, and a big box of Quality Street.

They won't necessarily feel  ill at the time of the gathering or if they're asymptomatic and people won't err on the side of caution if it's go to the party or don't go, they'll take the chance and go.
Give people an inch and they'll take a mile. Just my opinion.
