    are you guys traveling for Christmas? I am, not flying just driving.

    Any of you flying? Personally I wouldn't mind it. Hell, 4 out of 7 days I'm shopping in large crowds LOL. Don't really give a ****. I wear a mask and sanitize with lube after each stop, even though I know it's not really stopping covid. I'm so tired of this shit. I just want normalcy in this world =(

    I never fly for Christmas anyway, most of my family is in town. If it looks like there might be Christmas snow up in our part of NC I may drive up to see it but not likely

    We always host our place for the holidays. This year isn't any different. I think we'll have around 10 people for Christmas.

    I'm ready for this to be over.

    Flying to FL for a week starting New Year's Eve. Need to enjoy freedom such as eating in restaurants and drinking in bars. Live or die, I choose the former.

    I just got back a couple hours ago from flying to London and back this week...first flight since March...my profession entails LOTS of travel.

    Let me tell you...wearing a damn mask for 8 1/2 hours on a flight is MISERABLE! And I was sitting all the way up front in a "First Class Pod"...

    I flew back in May or so, but just a short flight during a weekday. Both airports were empty. No Xmas plans for me.

    While sitting and doing nothing. Imagine being a surgeon, and under pressure for 8.5 hours while wearing a mask.

    Eh, it's the surgeon's profession. A Mask for him us muscle memory. When asking the general public to do this for 8 hours, it's cumbersome and used to not be an everyday occurrence. You seem to always be on the left side of things. Or maybe both sides are tired of hearing the other side bitch about everything.

    Nope. No one coming home on a flight this year. Zoom for everyone on Christmas Eve.

    I usually don't travel any farther than my living room on Christmas. Well, maybe out to the garage for a few beers, but that's about it.

    Absolutely no changes for us. Christmas is always local. Christmas Eve likely at our niece's with around 15 people. Christmas day at our daughter's with around 8 people. No masks at either for anyone.

    So then just stop doing just that. It's the only way to end this at this point.
    Because that's their job, you retarded mongoloid.

    Just snack the entire flight next time. Open up a bag of sunflower seeds and pull that mask off and chew....and chew...until the flight is over.

    I’m thankful that we never really travel for holidays as my wife’s family is usually in Hong Kong but her mom just moved state side, and my family is local. Forget dealing with all that rushing around. We won’t be visiting my grandmother like we normally do on Christmas Day just to reduce risk of getting her sick but we’ll still do Christmas Eve dinner with my parents and siblings.

    I've practiced social distancing for years, so Covid has worked out well for me.

    With everyone staying home this Christmas, I am looking forward to 2 peaceful weeks of vacation with No family obligations to ruin it. :D

    I really hate to break it to you but the normalcy that we knew is never coming back unfortunately. Wait until we have to provide vaccination proof cards to do anything.

    No card needed. Microchip is in the vaccine.
    Walkthrough scanner at every entrance.
    No worries.

    Lived in Florida for a long time and we would fly or drive to metro Detroit every Christmas for my wife's side family get together (about 50 family members). We'd stay with my mother in law while up. 2 years ago we had to become caregivers for her as she was unable to live alone (dementia). The plan was to become snow birds with her. Nope... She doesn't travel well and couldn't handle changing locations. So, I decided we might as well become full time Michiganders and that way she could be close to other family members. She gets pneumonia easily so the last time we've seen any family was last Christmas. I'm not scared of getting it myself even at my age. I am terrified of giving it to my mother in law. It would most likely be her death sentence. Other than grocery shopping every other week and carry out dinners a couple times a week we've on "house arrest" since February. I bought a boat and we can use it without being around anyone so that was my only recreation all year. It's worse now than it was in March and April when the whole country was shut down.

    Long story to answer the question.... No travel. No visiting..... No nothin. No belly aching about it.
