Lonely for the Holidays, year after year. How can I improve?
All my friends have families to see, and I don't want to impose. And it would feel all kinds of awkward.

I feel like Lucy from While You Were Sleeping. Being alone on Christmas is a whole different feeling then being alone on any other day...you are really alone.

I usually work, but it makes me more depressed. All my co workers are excited to go home, and it's like, I don't mind staying, there's no where else for me to be.

Anyone else on my wavelength?

I have my mom, but she's been pretty anti Christmas. I don't know...I am just used to never really celebrating.

sorry to hear this - I have an idea of how this all is - and have nothing much new to offer than that standard line - go volunteer somewhere Christmas day - and yeah - I know it's still lonely - so if any one has another suggestion yay

Don't fall for the hype. You can do all kinds of things on Xmas, volunteer at a shelter, a soup kitchen, help some animals. Don't feel bad or alone, I was just like you for a couple of years after my divorce, I just made myself aware of my feelings and went out and tried to help others.

Same here I know how you feel. Watch an uplifting comedy, that's my plan tonight.

To improve I guess you need to find people to spent time with next year who don't have families, or find a girl/boy friend. Me, I'm too shy to make any new friends and I need to improve on that.

Your alone because your worthless and everyone hates you. You should buy an ar15 bushmaster and end you pathetic life. Merry christmas you lpnely loser

You are vile. You're reaping all kinds of bad karma for this vile post, and I don't mean the GLP kind.

OP, I'm the opposite of you so don't know what to tell you. I had a great Christmas today because I stopped "celebrating" it, whatever that means. Didn't go to any relatives and have my energy drained, didn't put up any tree or decorations, didn't give or receive presents... it was great just lounging about with the whole day to myself. Just another day on the calendar, but got to be off from work and relax. Went for a walk, communed with nature, cooked a nice meal...

It's only one day, and it goes by quickly. Tomorrow it will be over and you can forget about it and move on.

Well as to it being just one day - yes and no - there is a lot of pre and post hype. And thing is - it can just all around be a painful reminder of unfulfilled dreams - like people think things like oh I thought I'd spend this time with my grand kids and they don't even have kids of their own

I guess I am lucky to have my husband and kids. Other then them I have no one. I so wish I had a big family like I did years ago and everyone wou;ld come in and visit each one bringing a gift and leaving it under the tree. It was so much fun. Of course these days its just hubby, myself and kids. Don't feel down. Find yourself a friend that is like you or even a family in need. You live in the US try going to 2hands.org and looking for a family there that could use you as an adopted family member. You never know it may be fun, and you could always buy each child a small toy. that would make the Holidays much more worth it. Many I know would be happy to have someone come around as an adopted family member.

Meh its not all what's its cracked up to be, most families end up in arguments. Christmas is like Christianity's guilt card, they can buy presents and stuff to try and make up for lack of being there the rest of the year. Find some movie on netflix showing a disfunctional Christmas and you'll feel fine.

Yeah you're lucky you have your husband and kids - the grief of being alone at Christmas can be unbearable - sure - the adopt a family thing is nice - sometimes it just makes the loneliness more so in a strange way though

I stopped celebrating, too. I always work on Christmas, so I don't have time to volunteer, since when I get off work, all the Christmas dinners are over.

I don't put up a tree, or any sort of decorations. I am very anti materials. I try to live with as little as possible. And I hate having extra crap you only use for a certain amount of time. I rather use the money towards airfare. I just didn't realize until now that being alone for Christmas wasn't that common. My co worker was sad about spending Christmas alone tonight Though I don't have kids nor can I get into a relationship it seems.

It didn't bother me, until now. I just thought the grass was greener on the other side.

Christmas isn't the same without my parents who are now in the great Santaland in the sky. My highlight is going to church for Christmas Mass.

Maybe if you put up decorations you would get more into the Holiday spirit. You say that your coworker is alone on Christmas? Then why don't the 2 of you do something together?

The next time someone invites you to their house on Christmas, take them up on it!

I just feel so weird. My mom and I used to see family, but they treated us like we were weird. Never made us feel welcomed. Very cold. So it feels better to be away from that. But now I am realizing it's rather lonely.

Man, my life never goes the way I thought or want it to go. I long for happiness, but it seems so close yet so far.

Yes OP. This was my 12th Christmas alone, and I hate it every year. It's the worst day of the year for me.

Re: Lonely for the Holidays, year after year. How can I improve?
First Christmas alone. I didnt put up a tree, no decorations. Cooked no fancy meal. In an odd way, having no decorations made it feel like just another day.

My son was off all day from work and didn't think to call me to wish merry christmas. I did get a hold of him on messenger though to wish him merry christmas. Seems he didnt have a good day. He had christmas with his girlfriend and inlaws. More than I ever had.

Re: Lonely for the Holidays, year after year. How can I improve?
I feel so much for all who are lonely at this time of year. As a father of 7 we always remember in our prayers those who are suffering and alone... I know it's not much too ease those suffering, but I honestly understand the feelings.

Try to keep in mind that you are living the True meaning of Christmas in your own way. Yes, our traditions around this Holiday is about family, and peace and all that. But the original Christmas was nothing of the sort.

A Woman with Child and Her surrogate father traveling many miles by decree, only to find at the end of their travels with a Baby coming no one would let them in. I bet none here posted would be that coarse to say no...but it happened then.

They had to settle for a cave to give birth to Our Lord and Savior alone. That's how He was born. No friends. No family. Not even any strangers. Just animals. That is how He entered our world as a Man.

You aren't alone. This day is for you. You know are more part of the true meaning of Christmas more than any Norman Rockwell caricature image we want to believe...and feel. And I honestly believe you will be justly rewarded for this in time.

God bless, and pray for us. Because you are closer to the Lord than any family gathering would be.
