Now, don't get me wrong - we can definitely celebrate. After the year we've had, I think we all deserve to do that. Justin Trudeau

He said that we'd probably be finalizing plans for getting together with loved ones to celebrate if this was any other year.

However, because this is 2020, we need to do that in a different way, like moving our festivities online to stay safe.

"Now, don't get me wrong - we can definitely celebrate. After the year we've had, I think we all deserve to do that," Trudeau said.

He also noted that not gathering in person will help us "have a happier and healthier 2021."
