Santa Cannot Visit the UK This Year Due to COVID-19

Santa Cannot Visit the UK This Year Due to COVID-19

By TLB Contributing Partner: Christina England, BA, Hons

Due to current Covid restrictions in the UK, Santa is unable to deliver any presents this year.

On November 24, 2020, the UK government issued a press release stating that, whilst they give UK citizens permission to have Christmas celebrations this year, families must follow strict guidelines because:

This cannot be a normalChristmas.

The government stated that:

Even where it is within the rules, meeting with friends and family over Christmas will be a personal judgement for individuals to take, mindful of the risks to themselves and others, particularly those who are vulnerable. We need everyone to think carefully about what they do during this period, balancing some increased social contact with the need to keep the risk of increased transmission of the virus as low as possible. This is particularly important when considering those who are vulnerable, and before deciding to come together over the festive period we urge the consideration of alternative approaches such as the use of technology or meeting outside.

They continued that:

  • Travel restrictions across the four administrations and between tiers will be lifted to provide a window for households to come together between the 23rd and 27th of December.

  • Up to three households can form an exclusive bubbleto meet at home during this period. When a bubble is formed it is fixed, and must not be changed or extended further at any point.

  • Each Christmas bubble can meet at home, at a place of worship or an outdoor public place, but existing, more restrictive rules on hospitality and meeting in other venues will be maintained throughout this period. [1]

In other words, Santa has been excluded from visiting the UK’s children this year, because he can only visit a total of three families.

Sadly, these cast iron rules, established by the UK government, cannot be broken and, therefore, will leave hundreds of thousands of children devastated this Christmas when they wake up to find an empty stocking.

On a More Serious Note

Whilst Boris Johnson, guided by the wonderful Matt Hancock, has been busy deciding exactly how the UK will be allowed to celebrate Christmas this year, it appears that he has forgotten that, due to his previous restrictions and chaotic four tier system, tens of thousands of UK businesses have either gone into liquidation or have had to furlough their staff for months on end. These actions have left the UK not only in crisis, but with approximately 1.6 million people unemployed. [2] [3]

Therefore, it really does not matter whether the Prime Minister allows us to have a Christmas or not, because as a direct result of his actions this year, tens of thousands of families are now facing homelessness and poverty at this time, leaving many of them unable to AFFORD Christmas anyway.

Note from Christina:

Please visit my new facebook page Arlos New Beginning, where you can follow my little foster dog Arlo’s, journey to his new life.

Arlo is a little dog that I am fostering. He is under a year old and completely unable to walk, due to severe birth deformities. I am fostering him from Hessa’s Homeless Hounds in Hertfordshire.

We need to raise around £12.000 ($15.900) to enable him to have the surgery that he so desperately needs, to free him from pain and get him on his feet for the first time in his life.

If you enjoy reading my articles/work then please consider donating through my fundraiser, where you can read his full story.

Or through my PayPal christina128@live.co.uk

Thank you.

We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)

  1. Look at your hands.
    How many middle fingers do you have?
    That’s right. Now hold them right up in the air.
    That’s my Christmas message for Matty Cockhead and Boris the Brave.
