Is there anyone else out there like me, alone, no gifts, no celebrations, no dinner plans? Just reading all these posts .... I hope you all know how very blessed and fortunate you are.

Yep. Me.

My dinner plan is contigent upon the population of my city not having a heart attack or a mental health crisis. If everyone cooperates, then I might be able to have dinner with my husband at the hospital. If they don't, I won't see him until tomorrow morning.

Where are your kids? We have no gifts. No special dinner plans. We don't celebrate so it's like this every year. Just make the most of what you do have.

I'm sorry that you are alone on Christmas. I do know how lucky my family and I are. ((Hugs))

Well, for people who dont celebrate, its just another day, I get that. But for those who used to and would celebrate, it's different.

My 2 sons are adults and are in prison. My husband of 18 years left me this past year. So I went from having a family and celebration to just being so alone and very very sad.

It's just me and my two boys. They got gifts and I am making a dinner now. So I guess I am not really alone,but it would be nice if I had extended family and friends around as well.

Yup.   Me too. 

My husband pulled some of his typical cra* so so I cancelled Christmas.  

I do have my critters with me, though, and they are being very Christmassy.   They love the extra attention.   Everyone's getting a spa day and extra treats.   Including me.

But not my husband.
