    Given that Boris has decided that in the UK restrictions will be eased over Xmas celebrations are expected to cause a spike in covid cases in early 2020.

    I plan to attend some massive concert at a stadium.

    No, same as always, Pinky, I only have time to calculate how to eventually take over the world.

    Only the same people we've been in our "bubble" with for months: my in-laws.

    Parents are part of my bubble so I'll be going over to their place.
    One of them *might* go an visit my sister in Georgia. She had to move their during Covid and may be struggling with Covid loneliness.

    Unless there is some very unexpected change regarding restrictions, it will just be immediate family for me.

    None of the poll options fit for me...
    Normally I'd visit my parents, and we'd celebrate together with my sister+husband+child, my uncle and maybe my cousin.
    This year I'm not risking it. Instead I'm flying to see my girlfriend. So I'll be celebrating with my GF and her housemate (although not really, since both are officially, but not practically muslims), and maybe 1-2 friends who are not risking to see their family either. But the latter is not set yet, maybe not.

    EDIT: -> please give the poll a "Bananas" option or whatever :).

    We will probably drive to the kids Grandmother's house to drop off her gifts and then come back home.

    In my case its going to be me, my Mum (usual household) plus my daughters if they want (ones at uni, one works, but both live alone).
    Will probably deliver presents to brother's and sister's houses on Xmas Day and weather permitting my Mum will get to watch the grandkids open them outside.

    My immediate family (i.e. in this house). Myself, my wife, a three year old, an infant, and two cats.

    We're debating seeing my family but honestly not keen.
