CHRISTMAS may feel a little different this year after a popular festive event has been cancelled for the first time in a decade due to the ongoing pandemic.

Drinks brand, Coca-Cola announced that its Christmas truck tour will not be making the rounds this festive period.

Each year the large, red truck visits towns and cities across the country and helps to spread festive cheer... and fizzy drinks.

However due to restrictions imposed across the country because of the ongoing pandemic, the company has made the decision to cancel the tour this year.

The tour was set to begin this month, and in 2017 the lorry visited the Fox Valley Shopping Park.

In a statement on Twitter, the company said: “Due to current restrictions around the country, our Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour won't go ahead this year.

“We know it's disappointing, but we'll continue to share special Christmas moments throughout the festive season.

“We look forward to seeing you next year.”

Coca-Cola did announce that their now iconic Christmas advert would still air on TV.
