Somethings won't change - for example it's still allowed for 5 people to meet up. This rule will also be applied at Christmas, so from December 24 to December 26, if you're meeting friends. If you're meeting your closest family circle it's allowed to meet up to 4 people from up to 2 households + your own household. Gatherings for New Year's Eve are not allowed.
