Apparently it was because they'd run out of Christmassy ideas, which I can understand.
See, to me that makes no sense. There was nothing particularly Christmassy about Husbands of River Song or Doctor Mysterio, or most of the RTD era Christmas specials. They could have just put a paper crown on the Doctor and that would have been enough to call it a Christmas episode. I would have been much more understanding if Chibnall had said that he specifically wanted to write an episode set during New Year or that he didn't feel comfortable writing a Christmas-themed episode when there is a muslim character in Team Tardis.
