It’s the season to be jolly, so being alone during the Christmas holidays does not give you a pass to sulk and get depressed. There are plenty of ways that you can enjoy Christmas all on your own. So cheer up and consider these ideas on how you can enjoy a “Christmas All Alone” experience.
- Serve yourself a wonderful breakfast.
Give yourself a wonderful early treat come Christmas morning. Take your time and make your breakfast in tune with the holiday season. You can serve yourself pancakes but instead of the same old pancakes, have them in the shape of either a Christmas tree or perhaps the gingerbread man or any Christmas-themed shapes you want. You can easily do this with the use of a cookie cutter and you’ll find cookie cutters in many holiday-themed shapes. Grab a couple of eggs, some cheese and sausage and make some delicious scrambled eggs. To complete your Christmas breakfast, pour yourself a glass of cold orange or apple juice or have a cup of hot tea or coffee. This will sure energize you for the day ahead! Remember to enjoy your breakfast! Don’t eat in a rush!
- Be of service and lend a helping hand.
This holiday season you can make a good use of your time by becoming a volunteer at a local shelter to help the less fortunate. You can volunteer to serve food or give gift and bring Christmas joy to others.
- Go watch a play.
After volunteering your time to bring joy to the needy, give yourself a reward by watching a Christmas play or a Nativity scene. Your local church would probably have such a play going on during Christmas. While at it, socialize with the other people watching the play. You might just meet a new friend.
- Enjoy a movie or two or more.
You still have a lot of time on your hands so go and buy or rent some movies. You may want to do reruns of your favorite Christmas movies. The classics are great to watch. Some of the great classics are “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Miracle on 34th Street”. But of course feel free to rent out movies that you would love even those that doesn’t have a Christmas theme.
- Call your friends and loved ones.
Give your fingers an exercise. Dial the numbers of your family and friends and wish them a happy Christmas.
- Go for a spin.
Come night time don’t call it a day too early just because you’re alone. You can still enjoy Christmas. Hop in your car and drive around. You will enjoy the bright lights of Christmas. If you don’t have a car, you can simply bike around or even walk around.
Have a wonderful Christmas!
