Those looking for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act have until midnight to do so. The deadline was December 23 but that has since changed. A new task for a lot of people this Christmas Eve, signing up for health insurance for it to kick in on January 1.

The deadline was pushed because of a heavy demand on www.healthcare.gov. A spokesperson said they’re trying to accommodate people who live in different time zones and to deal with possible technical issues that could happen.
