Lockdown measures are to be lifted on December 2nd. This should be considered as a good thing. Yet, with the convinient timing of the lifting of lockdowns which falls perfectly with the timing of Christmas. It is because of this that there is a certainty that people will feel unjustly treated. In the words of the PM, Borris Johnson, "We all want some kind of Christmas, we need it, we certainly feel we deserve it. But what we don't want is to throw caution to the winds and allow the virus to flare up again, forcing us all back into lockdown in January." Now the question being asked is; why does christmas get special attention and not other holidays?

The Chief Medical Officer does states that people shouldn't do anything "unnecessary things, just because you can" indicating that even though lockdown rules have been lifted the risk of covid is still relatively high. People are still at risk and so is it fair that people are allowed out even though those who are considered vulnerable will have contatct with others who have been mixing with a large group of people 

Now while for the majority of the counrty people will be happy to finally see thier loved ones after such a long time. Overall, people have benefited from a lockdown which has lowered the risk to people. However, why is it that people miss thier own holidays in order to protect the collective population whilst the government allows for people to see each other when a holliday which is held by the majority is coming up.
