This post is written for anybody who might not be excited about spending Christmas independently. Initially, was not really excited about it. Was single, had just moved into my flat and had no close family to spend Christmas with. Following the first, realization and despair that actually was going to be on my own, decided was going to make it through the day and have as great a time as could. Ended up having a terrific day and choose to spend Christmas on my own for many years afterwards.
Think learning to be Christmas has made me self-reliant and more resourceful. If you do not want to spend by yourself then you have alternatives. Where there are plenty of single folks, you might go on vacation woke up at 5am on a wonderfully warm and sunny Christmas day, wandered down to the shore, sat on the sand and then dipped my feet in the water. It was fun, religious and very beautiful.
Or you could spend the Day for a volunteer maybe working with the homeless or with animals in shelters. Giving your time and your energy can be quite satisfying. Believe there is much pressure and expectation to have a fun and joyous Christmas surrounded by a loving family that if you are on your own you can feel lonely and at odds with everybody else.
