Merkel sees no NYE parties, but family Christmas to be allowed

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday ruled out big New Year's Eve parties this year but said families should be allowed to celebrate Christmas together, with the necessary precautions.

"It will be a Christmas under corona conditions but it should not be a lonely Christmas," Merkel said, while ruling out "lavish New Year's Eve parties".
