I have spent time alone at Christmas. During a time when it seems the whole world is sharing special moments with their families, being alone can be very difficult. Sometimes when you alone at Christmas you can feel sad and bored, Nothing is 'open' and the T.V just shows countless programmes of other people having a great festive time. It can sometimes feel like you are 'having your nose rubbed in it' to coin a phrase. But for many people Christmas can feel lonely even if you are with people. Some people have too much to drink and make other peoples lives a misery. Some people are forced to spend time with people who are not kind to them, and all the time we are fed images of the 'happy family' by the media and this can make us feel worse. I love the film 'Surviving Christmas' starring Ben Afflek. Has anyone else seen it? It is a great film to watch if you are alone this Christmas. It will make you feel like you are not alone. I won't spoil the plot for you. I hope you all have a Happy Christmas alone or otherwise!
