There’s one holiday tradition the Kardashian Jenner family won’t be sticking to this year…

This year, the Kardashian Jenner family won’t be hosting their annual Christmas party – a tradition which has happened every Christmas Eve for the past 42 years.

This doesn’t really surprise us though, given the severe rise in Coronavirus cases in California, and the social distancing/mask-wearing measures that have been introduced.

Khloe Kardashian took to social media to confirm that the annual party is canceled…

“The Covid cases are getting out of control in CA. So we decided that we’re not doing a Christmas Eve party this year,” she wrote on Twitter.

“It’s the first time we will not be having a Christmas Eve party since 1978 I believe.

“Health and safety first though! Taking this pandemic seriously is a must.”

At least their friends and family can look forward to their Christmas card to soften the blow, right? Wrong!

Khloe also confirmed that the family haven’t posed for their annual Christmas picture either, and therefore won’t be sending out holiday cards.

This makes a lot of sense, as having that many people together in such close proximity in the middle of a pandemic is not the greatest idea…

“We have not done anything. No Christmas photos and no Christmas Eve party this year. Covid has taken over,” the 36-year-old confirmed on Twitter.

We’re glad the family is taking the pandemic seriously, as some of them have already contracted the virus…

As well as Kanye West, who confessed that he had COVID-19 back in March, Khloe Kardashian also confirmed that she had tested positive for Coronavirus, which can be seen on an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

“Just found out that I do have corona,” she says in a teaser for an upcoming episode of the reality show.

“I have been in my room. It’s gonna be fine, but it was really bad for a couple days.”

Not having a Kardashian-Jenner Christmas Eve party isn’t the end of the world, as keeping people safe should be the priority. Plus, we have a feeling that they’ll be partying twice as hard next year
