Christmas is going to look pretty different this year, including for Justin Trudeau and his family.

In a new interview with CTV News, the prime minister revealed what he’ll find the hardest about the unusual celebrations this year.

He explained that his mom wouldn’t be able to join the family in Ottawa during the holidays.

While the PM admitted that this “hurts,” he acknowledged that it’s a reality many Canadians are facing this year, particularly as restrictions in Ontario just got stricter ahead of Christmas day.

“It's what all Canadians are doing, making tough decisions to be there for each other so we can celebrate many more Christmases together,” he explained.

Although a slightly quieter Christmas is in the cards for Trudeau this year, it hasn’t stopped him and his children getting extra festive ahead of the big day.

Last week, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau posted an adorable photo on Instagram showing her husband and kids decorating Rideau Cottage for the holiday period.

The PM is clearly looking forward to the future, too. He revealed this week that he’s “there with bells on” when it comes to getting the COVID-19 vaccine.
