Minister of Public Health suggests Christmas Eve lunch rather than dinner. Public Health Minister Plutarco Arias has proposed declaring Christmas Eve a holiday so that Dominicans can gather for a Christmas lunch instead of the traditional evening dinner. While Christmas Day already is a holiday, Christmas Eve has always been a working day. This 2020, Christmas Eve falls on a Thursday (with a curfew at 9pm), and Christmas Day on a Friday, making for a long weekend.



President Luis Abinader has announced his agreement to the minister’s Christmas Eve proposal.



The Covid-19 curfew restricts Dominicans from gathering on holidays after 7pm. Many people are advocating a relaxing of the curfew over the holidays. Others say that this will only lead to a spike in cases. Authorities have said they are not game to relaxing the restrictions.

Public Health Minister Plutarco Arias and his team are doing their absolute best to change Dominican culture...
one holiday at a time.
I wonder what he'll come up with next?
Hows about "virtual" gift giving instead of doing it as it's done for generations?
