4. Did they choose Christmas eve day on purpose?

Lee Wright 12:04 AM
They hoped to fake their death on the roof, so they could escape from the basement.
Christmas – minimum people in building; party – all people gathered in one place
People on vacation
building was mostly empty
No interference with their plans
