With COVID-19 in full swing, Canadians have undoubtedly sacrificed many large celebratory gatherings, but Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Christmas might not have to be one of them. 

On September 23, following the throne speech, Trudeau first addressed the country by saying that the second wave of the novel coronavirus isn't just starting, but is already here.

It's all too likely we won't be gathering for Thanksgiving, but we still have a shot at Christmas.

The country only saw 47 new daily cases of the virus when we initially went into lockdown, but by Wednesday, the country saw more than a thousand.

With numbers like these, the PM says it's unlikely Canadians will see a Thanksgiving gathering any time soon.

But wait.

Trudeau said that if Canada gets back on track and keeps the numbers down this fall, we might see a Christmas.

In order to make that happen, he says we need to keep wearing masks, restrict social circles, avoid parties and unnecessary risks, get a flu shot, and download the COVID Alert app so we can have a shot at celebrating this December.
