The Lygoyris family hope to reunite with their 99-year-old great grandfather this Christmas


NSW is set to farewell 2021 in style, with fully vaccinated residents able to enjoy a large family Christmas meal, nights out with friends, a New Year’s Eve party and proper summer holidays.

According to The Daily Telegraph, while there will still be some restrictions, a continuance of the state’s vaccination pace will deliver freedoms in line with those currently in place overseas.

Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, has said the national plan to reopen states with 80 percent vaccination would bring families back together.

“Friends can make plans for New Year’s Eve where they can hug and kiss at midnight,” he said.

“And everyone can make plans for a family Christmas. Nobody wants COVID to be the virus that stole Christmas.”

Families can plan to have a big Christmas dinner.

Travel within NSW also looks set to be opened up although there remain question marks over interstate travel.

Queensland and Western Australia have indicated their borders could remain closed until next year, but open travel may be possible between NSW, Victoria and South Australia.

Sydney couple, ­Selina and George Lygoyris, told The Daily Telegraph this would be a relief as their greatest Christmas wish was for their three children to see their 99-year-old great grandfather.

“We are hoping to be able to go to Melbourne as all of George’s family live there and the kids are missing their grandparents and cousins,” Mrs Lygoyris told the newspaper.

If the state borders remain closed the family has the Central Coast as second on their wishlist.
