I haven't got an organised plan B but like many I have a few different ideas depending on what we can and cannot do. It doesn't bother me much whatever as I do believe Christmas is just another day and those I don't see then I will see later or for New Year instead.
Life can be very much what you make it and if me an my loved ones are alive then I'm sure we will have a good time somehow. I enjoyed being on zoom and doing online quizzing with family last year but would rather see them all in the flesh.

If we don't get locked down at Christmas and relatives are allowed to mingle then my plan b is to pretend I'm too ill to see them lol.

Plan B is much the same as Plan A and Plans C to Z. :)

When I was still working, for many years, Christmas has always been a time of rest and recuperation for me, so that is unlikely to change.

I've travelled somewhere warm a few times for the Christmas holidays, but I have more or less given up hope of that being possible again, whatever the time of the year. As is my style, my little project for this season is to be researching living the best life and what other little adventures may be an option in the future. Life is always full of exciting possibilities. Who knows, this time next year, I may even be writing this from a cottage by the sea.

I always start with plan c, then I can countermove either way depending on the circumstances.

That is true. You do make plans but it's easy to forget that the world around you never stops.

I always keep a few options open but it's wise to do so most years because a lot changes around Christmas with the possibilty bad weather preventing travel and illnesses. I don't particularly mind Christmas on my own and small gatherings are more to my liking but we will have to wait and see.

I haven't met anyone who is concerned about Christmas this year and they're all looking forward to having a good time.

Will there be a spoiler?

I suppose that depends on how many people you've met - my family and friends are concerned given the fact our great leader isn't going to let us know if he is allowing Christmas at all until the 18th December.
So that's just one week before the big day.
Christmas holidays and travel plans ruined, hotels/pubs/restaurants losing bookings and families separated once again - cheers Johnson you big fat tub of lard!....

Of course it does depend on many factors including how many people you meet and talk about Christmas with. Nobody know what the virus will do whether you follow the science or Facebook because nobody can see into the future so no matter how annoying it is a lot of regulations do have to be made at the last minute. The alternative would be blanket bans weeks in advance which may be unnecessary.
I travel and all bookings I have made I have only done with the proviso that I don't lose deposits.

Thanks Covid!

Boris will likely do what he did last year. Let everyone out and about during the first half of December so that they can spend their money and plenty of VAT goes towards filling their coffers. Meanwhile, everyone is spreading their germs. Then lock us all down again for the actual event because the number of cases have shot up. Thereby shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted, once again. Except, I'm not sure that many people will spend another Christmas isolated away from all their family and friends and I reckon a lot of them will ignore another lock down completely. It doesn't make any difference to me. I don't have any family.

I've wondered the same Minnie, I don't think people will tolerate another locked down Xmas, I think the goverment know this and lockdown will start in the first week of January after filling the treasury coffers over xmas and New Year. Everybodies skint after xmas anyway and January sales can be done online.
