Bookies Slash Odds Of A White Christmas

Needless to say, it's been a bit of a grim year.

What with coronavirus, lockdowns and Christmas still potentially up in the air, goodness knows we all need something to look forward to.

And our prayers may have been answered, after bookies' have slashed odds on whether we'll see a white Christmas in 2020.

Ladbrokes have odds of 10/11 of the white stuff falling on the big day as the UK braces itself for a winter cold snap.

But it's the north of the country that are most likely to be making snow angels and having the odd snowball fight, with Edinburgh and Newcastle leading the charge with odds of 3/1.

Manchester is similarly likely to see the odd wintery flurry with odds on 4/1, matched with Belfast, Cardiff and Dublin.

Trailing bottom of the list is London; but while the capital is least likely to see snow on Christmas Day, its odds aren't terrible, with Ladbrokes offering 5/1.

Speaking about the odds, Ladbrokes spokesperson Alex Apati said: "Punters dreaming of a White Christmas are going to get their wish this year if the latest odds are anything to go by."

In other Christmas news, a new survey by Tyla found that just over half of people want the current strict lockdown rules relaxed over Christmas.

A Twitter poll found 56.9 per cent of recipients want the rules eased so they can celebrate Christmas with their families after what has been a difficult year.

However, 43.1 per cent responded that they wanted to remain in lockdown in order to keep their families safe.

It has been a divisive topic; while some celebrities such as Lorraine Kelly have urged for the lockdown to remain, others, such as Kate Garraway, have admitted felling "conflicted" between seeing loved ones over the festive period and preventing the spread of the virus.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to announce later today the country's approach to Christmas during the coronavirus pandemic, with sources suggesting he will permit a week's worth of easing to allow households to mix over the festive season.
