    19 Tweets That Accurately Summed Up How Omicron Ruined Christmas

    Just when we thought we were home free, another mutant COVID variant swings in to ruin everything.

    Christmas has come and gone...or has it? For many, Dec. 25, 2021 was just like any other day. And we can all blame it on one thing and one thing only: Omicron.

    While many of us entered the holiday season hoping that this Christmas would be less socially distanced than the last, Omicron swooped in and corrected that assumption.

    Here are 19 tweets describing how the ultra-contagious Omicron COVID-19 variant ruined what was supposed to be the "post-COVID" Christmas:

    I didn't go home for Christmas, as much as I needed it, I was worried about infecting my family. Now, there is a really good chance my whole family caught Omicron, including my immunocompromised sister in-law. I am not okay. I am so done with this year. Please take care. Fuck.

    Pharmacy yesterday: Man yelling at pharmacists because he didn’t believe positive test - wanted PCR, woman yelling they’d ruined her Christmas, long line waiting for tests. Massive lines in mall for boosters, 3 staff. Heart breaks for exhausted health care workers, pharmacists.
