Is anyone else going to be spending Christmas alone? How do you cope with the loneliness/sadness?
Remind yourself that there are many people who would really like to be in your shoes. You don't have to endure hours/days with people that you can barely tolerate. You can have as much sleep as you want, eat and drink whatever you want, and there will be some new movies to go check out. Celebrate the fact that you are free from the holiday stresses that many people have. Congratulations!

Re: Christmas Alone?

Go visit a local nursing home. There are so many people in those homes that never have a visitor and it will thrill them to death if you go. Take them a candy cane or a cheap Santa Hat. You will make their day and yours! Blessings,

Great advice on the nursing home. I use to take my guitar to a couple nursing homes.
