New Survey Finds Most Americans Plan to Attend Christmas Gatherings

Pixabay

No matter how hard some Democrats may try Americans are refusing to cancel Christmas. A recent study has found that a majority of Americans still plan to attend holiday gatherings despite warnings from government officials pushing for people to stay home.

The Daily Wire reports:

According to a November survey of 1,040 people by Cinch Home Services, 60.1% of those polled said they planned to attend a holiday gathering this year, with only 26.1% saying they were not planning to do so. Some 50.7% said they planned to attend Thanksgiving and 60.9% said they planned to gather for Christmas.

“Over a third of the people surveyed said they believe socializing is worth the risk of someone contracting COVID-19,” the survey authors wrote. “After months of limited contact with loved ones, it’s understandable that some might be eager to see loved ones. There have been concerns throughout the pandemic about the effects of isolation and loneliness on specific populations, particularly the elderly.”

“The COVID-19 pandemic has given people a lot of things to be concerned about, especially when it comes to socializing,” the authors also noted. “Varying opinions on appropriate precautions to take and anxiety around infection have made gathering together a lot more tense than it used to be. However, a majority of people said they still intended to see loved ones, particularly as the holidays draw near. Plus, many people reported taking a variety of precautions and agreed on the appropriateness of rules like social distancing and keeping gatherings outdoors when possible.”

Since Thanksgiving, there has been at least an 18% rise in COVID-19 cases in the U.S., prompting health officials such as Dr. Anthony Fauci to warn against unnecessary Christmas get-togethers. He was faced with accusations of attempting to “cancel” Christmas when he seemingly advised Americans to follow his example of not visiting family this year.

Nothing is getting in the way of some much-needed holiday cheer this season. How are you celebrating the holidays this season? Tell us in the comments below!

Did these tinpot dictators seriously think the majority of us would cancel plans with loved ones this Christmas? Especially after the hypocrisy we’ve witnessed from them?

Hypocrisy from the marxist Dems doesn’t make us sick or well, at least from COVID-19! They display the truth about themselves every time they say one thing and do the opposite, giving me opportunity to laugh at them as they show us their real inner being! No one ever taught them what “lead by example” really means. We are a “free” society (at least right now) and we all get to decide how to best keep our families safe and well!
Good bless and save America!

Watching people touching their masks continuously is laughable. You’re not helping yourself wearing a mask too loose, that falls down, etc. I only wear the paper kind with three or more layers and the bendable wire on the nose bridge. I have a Roman nose bridge which won’t allow mask to slip and fall, thus more protection, but the cloth masks are worthless. No one should be obliged to wear a mask. It should be voluntary.

Don’t be telling me to stay home and be “safe” while you’re out celebrating yourself and NOT wearing masks and NOT social distancing (I’m looking at you Newsom Nuisance, Cuomo Lightfoot just to name a few). Please everyone go out and have a Merry Christmas and stay blessed🎁🎄

We are having Christmas outdoors to ally the fears of some in the family. Fortunately, we live in south Texas. Two large outdoor heaters will take off any chill. Three generations in the backyard. The next door neighbors are having four generations indoors. 94 years down to a few months. Merry Christmas!

We celebrated Christmas Eve together as a family. It’s our normal tradition every year. Then on Christmas Day our grown kids usually go to their in-laws or spend their own time together on Christmas Day. It’s been noted that even wearing masks, people can still contract this COVID-19. Dr. Fauci is a flip flopper on his comments on this virus. No one knows how long you are protected from this virus if you get the vaccine. There are adverse reactions reported by people who have allergies. If you need to use an Epipen for anything, I personally do, I will not take this vaccine. We are supposed to be a free nation, they are trying to shred our Constitution. Like it’s just a piece of old paper to them now. Even SCOTUS won’t act accordingly to the constitution they swore to uphold. May God help us all, we patriots of our country need to stick together and not let the radical left best you down mentally. That’s how communist and socialist work. Mind games. May God bless America and keep President Trump in office for 4 more years to clean up this mess we are in, because it’s utter chaos in our Government!

Latest info I’ve seen. More cases where people wear masks than were they don’t. Also, in Alabama we have had many “Health Care”(19,000) and “Long Term Care” (4,300) workers that got the virus. Many “Long Term Residents” (8.300) also. Since these people always wear an N-9 mask, I’d consider that “Proof” that even N-95 masks do NOT prevent you from getting the virus. Also, nurses use more than one mask a shift. When it is taken off, it goes into “Bio-hazard Waste”. People that “Always” or “Almost Always” wear masks are over 75% of those infected. What happened to “Quarantine” the sick? Instead dems are quarantining the healthy! NUTS! From actual data, Only 9% of those that die “WITH” the virus, did NOT have a “Co-Morbidity” like heart disease, diabetes, etc. So, 95% that died “WITH” the virus, also had health problems, AND were over age 65. Shame I can find this information in minutes, but Dems and Media hide it!

I have no children or close family but, have wonderful friends I spend holiday meals and time with every year! Due to my senior age status and health (chronic kidney disease and asthma) I chose to stay home this year. My friends are sad about it and so am I! You would have to know me to understand me because, I have a turkey breast roasting in the oven and I am doing a traditional southern holiday meal with all the “fixings” for ME! Yep, there will be a DIET in my New Years’s resolutions!
Merry Christmas to all and especially to all American Patriots!

Nice post Maxi !!!! I also decided to stay home due to my heart disease from agent orange and a not so good immune system also due to Vietnam. I have step granddaughters who are preggo and some elderly people who attend and it would devastate me if I somehow contracted the china/demoRAT virus and unknowingly passed it on to someone in my family. So it looks like you and I will be eating alone together in different places. Have a Merry and a better New Year.

Seeing that there are 3.3 MILLION of us I think it’s time to march to the Govt buildings, Grab the Governors,Mayors and State Treasurers and DRAG them out of the buildings and tell them “Your Fired” and let them hit the streets.

Have 3 fire rings on the property about 50 yards apart from each other, with a picnic table at each one. Built fires at each one. Had about 8-10 friends at each one. Served chili and tamales to everyone. Ate, then lit bonfire in the middle and sang Chritmas Carol’s til about midnight. Had hot chocolate and home made brandy. Was a fine Christmas celebration.

The cases are up because the testing is up. How many people get multiple tests? And the tests are manipulated to a high cycle threshold guaranteed to give a positive read for most.
They still do not know what the test is testing for…are you near dead or barely alive?
Yeah, people get sick…but that’s a fact of their lives. Yeah, there’s a virus but just add it to the list of many…although this one is human-made and developed with gain of function to travel farther than a sneeze or cough would normally go…a bit of HIV, etc added just to be certain they can knock off their targets or make them so sick they wish they were dead. Remember, when you get the injection (dubbed a vaccine), you now have certainly been exposed to something you can spread to your family and friends.
Once enough sheeple are injected, the testing will be adjusted to a normal cycle threshold and it will appear that the vaccine has “cured” the plandemic…also, the cause of death will go back to indicating some prior morbidity.
If we all have this information without much research effort, what is wrong with the majority who still do not know it’s a scam?
Time to drag the talking heads off their thrones and provide actual information to the masses…not the endlessly regurgitated propaganda most listen to/watch.
I think the masks have become a “thing” for some folks…another accessory to flash.
They will be reluctant to give up their fashion statement. And it’s cheaper than a tattoo.

Those Covid numbers are inflated. People dying from bullet holes are being categorized as dying from Covid. Call the mortuary and funeral services. They have the details.
I went shopping on Christmas Eve ans cars were going everywhere. People shopping for Christmas and lots in a hurry to get there. It was fantastic. All the Christmas lights sold out. Just about all the decorations too. I always decorate on Christmas Eve. We celebrate Christmas from December 25th to February 1st which ends the Christmas cycle as Feast of the Purification of Mary.

Trump needs to stand up to the retarded DemoRATS and sue every single state requiring the mask mandate, 1 it is not a law 2 it is a violation of the prohibition of slavery in the US Constitution which states no man shall be chained or bound while performing the duties of his work, the retarded masks are bindings restricting breathing oxygen, which is much deadlier in the long run than the #CoronaSCAM2020 has ever been! and they cannot stop any form of any virus!!!

That was the second main purpose, after hijacking our elections to “get rid” of President Trump. The isolation, though, is arguably much more damaging to our society. Human beings were created to be social. One man and one woman for a life-time, and the children, family, and community which would naturally result. We are told to help one another. It’s the plan of God’s evil enemy, the devil, to break us up, isolate us, and destroy Creation. The Democrat Terrorists are his evil workers. Now it’s time for We The People to act. Stop letting those evil people over-run America. They have no authority for their evil plans, only what they have stolen from Our Constitution. Remember the Gift of God given for the salvation of the world – never give it up.
May you all have a very Blessed Christmas.

This is all about power and control. This is about the NWO and the reset the deep state is dying to implement. In 2019, 665,000 people died worldwide from the flu and there was not a peep. More than that died from the swine and H1N1 flu, and again not a peep. If this was not an election year, this would just be another bad flu season – and that is for the entire world.

Well, I’ll tell you this–I’m not following any mandates,edicts or suggestions coming from Dr. Fauci, the MSM, the CDC, the WHO or any progressive socialist Democrat elected official. For me, their days of lording over us, manipulating our behavior out of fear, forcing unconstitutional policies on us and generally attempting to control every aspect of our lives is over. If others choose to remain under their despotic thumb–well, that’s their decision. At least, until Jan. 20, this is a free country. After that date, who knows?
