Dreadful: fighting took place on Christmas Day during the First World War

It isn't "Christmas as usual" this year. Covid-19 has resulted in restrictions on movement and social contact and, on top of that, there is a great deal of uncertainty, as well as the daily reports of the number of people who have been hospitalised and the number of Covid-19-related deaths.

There is also the constant din of conflicting and contradicting opinions about what the Government should be doing and this is happening in countries around the world.

Twenty-four-hour news is filled with people disagreeing, politicians disagreeing and scientists disagreeing and, of course, everyone has an opinion.
