Science expert thinks we should completely call off Christmas this year

Do you think Christmas should be postponed?

I remember when I was a kid there being a story called The Man Who Cancelled Christmas and now it seems in 2020 we might see a live action version.

With 2020 being such a stressful year, almost everyone has been looking forward to celebrating the festive holidays but experts think we should hold off until 2021.

Associate Professor at Trinity College, Tomás Ryan, celebrating Christmas this year could be detrimental to our progress in lowering our Covid cases.

In fact Ryan thinks that we should cancel all Christmas celebrations this year and instead wait until next year.

According to 98FM Ryan said

"One way of looking at this would be to delay Christmas until the end of January and have a real Christmas and a real party then."

Ryan went on to say that we should wait until our Covid numbers are in single digits before we attempt to end lockdown or celebrate Christmas.

With so many around the country already missing family I feel like the cancellation of Christmas and extension of Phase 5 would be a crushing blow to many.

As it stands Phase 5 will continue until the first week of December but there is no confirmation at the moment if it will go beyond that.
