The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year, but they can also feel like the most gosh darn awful time of the year when you're alone.
It's not that you need a partner to "jingle all the way," light a menorah, or watch the ball drop, but the holidays symbolize love, togetherness, and an exchange of affections for all who we love, from family to romantic partners. And hey, let's not forget those tantalizing Victoria's Secret ads we ladies see each holiday season with a whole lingerie line full of whimsical, lacy nothings guaranteed to impress our hot, hunky . . .
Nobodies. We've got nobody.
Suddenly, you can really feel like you just got a whole bunch of coal in your fishnet stockings . . .
But instead of hanging your head and doing the weeping woman sob of shame, buck up, buttercup! The holidays can be pretty amazing alone, too. After all, there's no tag line that states you must be a part of duo in order to enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
Survive the holidays this year alone by not surviving, but thriving.
