Christmas is over, so here’s when Christmas ends.
That’s because of the End of the World date.
If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably think Christmas has already ended.
But if you’ve just been wondering if it’s all going to be over at Christmas time, you’re in luck.
There are no actual plans to end the year on the date, but it’s the End-of-the-World date that means that, if you’re thinking of celebrating Christmas with family, friends and co-workers, you’ll need to do so before December 15.
The End-Of-The-World Date is a date that was created in 1989 and has been in use since then, meaning that it’s one of the oldest in existence.
So when does it end?
It’s set to be announced on January 31.
But what’s the countdown?
It starts on January 1 and ends on December 15, 2019.
How can I celebrate Christmas at home?
If your family and friends are planning to celebrate Christmas, you can, of course, do so as normal, but you might want to think about where to celebrate and plan ahead.
If you live in an area that has a ‘no-smoking’ zone, this will probably help you celebrate.
Also, if your workplace is a small office, you might find it easier to arrange an outdoor event for your staff.
What about restaurants and pubs?
Christmas is a big occasion, so restaurants are usually full before the end of the day, and pubs tend to close up.
You can always book a holiday dinner at a pub or restaurant if you don’t want to make your own.
Why don’t I just have a big party at my home?
If you don, you could well find that the holiday is already over, or that you’re just going through the motions of enjoying the time you have.
In either case, it might be best to find somewhere that will be open, even if that means you can’t celebrate with your family or friends.
Christmas will be over on January 3 and ends at 12:01am on January 15.
Is Christmas really coming to a close?
Yes, but this is the time of year when many people are celebrating and many celebrations take place.

Do I need to book a party for my Christmas celebrations?
No, but if you want to plan ahead, it’s best to organise a family-friendly, family-style holiday.
However, if a lot of people are attending, you may want to book separate parties to get the best out of the celebrations.
When can I expect to see the end?
The End of The World date is set to take place on January 21, 2019, so you should expect the end-of the year festivities to start by the end, which is when Christmas officially ends.
