When You’re Alone at the Holidays
Christmas is all about family, holiday traditions, celebrating with the kids, seeing the wonder and magic in their faces. But this year there is no one bursting into your bedroom pre-dawn, no squeals of excitement at the stockings and presents under the tree, no ripping of wrapping paper and tossing of bows, or happily playing with the box the present came in. You are alone at the holidays.
Will it just be a day of staring through your tears at the Christmas tree? If you even get out of bed at all? How can you possibly survive and get through it? Can we just skip from Thanksgiving right into the new year (and right over winter while we’re at it please…)?
