For Christmas and Easter I go to my parents.  All 3 of us girls and our families will go there for those 2 holidays.  My parents don't celebrate any other holidays so we each do our own thing with our own little families.

 well... for many many many years, I had a very large gathering on Christmas Eve, usually following the candlelight ceremony at church. TONS of food, lots of people (sometimes over 30) and, I always had a basket, bowl, or tree of ornaments I'd purchased specifically for that gathering. Every guest got to take one home and put it on their tree.

Haven't done that in a few years. The divorce ripped the family apart, two of my daughters no longer spoke to me, (now down to only one not speaking), .. I no longer have the money to spend on such lavish things, and the house has fallen into disrepair.

I have entertained the idea of trying to do something very very scaled down this year, but I doubt I will be able to get the house put together into any form of presentable shape by then.

We have no local family.  They are all, either in another province or in England.

We live thousands of miles from any family. It's always just the three of us.
