Every two years , I spent Christmas alone in my little house in the suburbs. I am divorced , no children , and all members of my family live in another part of the country. Some time ago single person holidays, I fell into the habit of taking the plane to join them only every second Christmas , and I took my years in haste "Alone" .
I'm not a social recluse , but I discovered through trial and error , how to enjoy the holidays as a single woman alone.

1. Learning to be alone at Christmas is not a tragedy. The first year I did it, the situation did not feel strange, because people react with concern if it appears in the conversation you will be in your account. But the reality is that it is not as difficult as others think single person holidays, especially if you're used to living alone .
Two . Recognize that it is an "off " , not a single day. Enjoy all the season has to offer . When it comes to a year that I know I will be alone at home, I like to wear to the office before the holidays / personal holidays : Christmas musicsingle person holidays, while shopping , or gifts packing and sending letters , notes or e-mail greetings .
Three . You need to decorate your home . Establish a tree. Go further and put special candles , potpourri , tablecloths , napkins , fingers, etc.single person holidays make festive atmosphere.
April . Plan special meals for you. I plan and buy my Christmas holidays, and I make sure that :
