Boxing Day revelers looked stunning as they ignored the cold temperatures and Omicron threats to continue their Christmas festivities.
People were seen getting into the holiday spirit by going to Wigan’s city center bars to dance the night away in fancy dresses, an annual Lancashire tradition.
Last year, Coronavirus regulations prevented the Boxing Day celebration, in which clubbers wear costumes and go to bars around King Street, an English city, from going ahead.
The best costumes of the evening were the ones that partygoers wore to represent characters. Some dressed up as Super Mario gang members, others as Wally from Where’s Wally.
The Revellers were seen heading out in large numbers to bars, clubs and other venues ahead of today’s government discussions. This could impact New Year’s Eve festivities if further curbs are introduced to prevent the Omicron variant from spreading.
In an attempt to stop Covid cases from spreading rapidly, restrictions were imposed in Wales and Northern Ireland yesterday and today.
Talks will be held between the Prime Minister and advisers in order to determine if legal restrictions are necessary to address Omicron’s threat.
Downing Street is understood to be leaning towards new guidance urging people in England to be careful and limit contacts – rather than imposing new legally binding restrictions such as table service in pubs or limits on household mixing.
This could all change, however, if the data regarding hospitalizations indicates that there could be a surge in coronavirus-related infections to overwhelm the NHS.
The PM has considered possible restrictions over the last few days, including closing bars and restaurants indoors.
Boxing Day was a cold day for Revellers who braved freezing temperatures and Omicron threats in order to crowd out bars and clubs across England. Pictured is a group of people dressed up in fancy clothes seen at bars and clubs in Wigan. It’s a tradition that couldn’t continue last year because Covid prevented it.
