Why are they easing covid restrictions for xmas?Watch
They didn't for other celebrations like Diwali, eid, bonfire night etc. They say the uk is a multicultural society but it isn't really. They only care about Christians, they're going to ease restrictions so people can celebrate Christmas with their families but they didn't do that for other religions. Like we get 2 weeks off for Christmas/new year and other religions only get one day. If one day is enough for them then one day is enough for Christmas too.
for the people saying we should ease restrictions for christmas bc more people celebrate it, is that not more reason to NOT ease restrictions? more people celebrate it so more households will be mixing = more cases.
Christmas is the most popular religious festival in the UK and has been celebrated in this country since the epoch of Christianity's popularity here and before that celebrated as the Yuletide festival. It is a deeply cultural thing for the British people and to claim anything otherwise is simply ignorant for the sake of ignorance. You know full well why Christmas has been given priority and you are choosing to make it religious - Christmas is more than Christianity and has been for at least 50 years now. It's about family and culture, an essential part of life for so many people in this country.
In regards to coronavirus specifically - given the importance of this to many people, as I said before, they will simply break the rules anyway - hence they have been legislated for.
