Being single and alone during the holidays isn’t as sad as it sounds. You can watch all the sappy holiday movies that you want and have a cry fest; or you can host a soirée and invite all your cool friends, without having to stress over a significant other’s unpleasant guests. In fact, being single during the festive season just may be the best thing that ever happened to you, according to an article on

“As it turns out, I’m not alone. There are plenty of single people who enjoy the holidays because of their freedom, not despite it. So if anyone tries to make me feel bad about it, I have two words for them: bah humbug!,” writes Katie Sweeney

Remember being single means independence. It’s time to do all the things that you wouldn’t normally do when you’re with someone. You might be alone this year but in 2017, you may fall hopelessly in love or travel to a distant land. No matter what your relationship status is right now, try to enjoy the moment. As everyone knows, people agonize over being single, then complain when they’re in a relationship. Moments can be fleeting, so appreciate where you are, and enjoy your holidays. – Ellison Walcott
