Re: Are you alone this Christmas?
Yes thank heavens
for most of the day.
After years of driving hundreds of miles through all kinds of weather to spend Christmas with a lot of people with whom I had little in common only a blood line, I can now heave a sigh of relief and stay at home.
After my husband died all I ever wanted to do was to have Christmas alone with my little boy but it never happened.
There must be hundreds of people doing the same thing, going away when they would rather stay at home
Then when my son had grown and some of the family gone I volunteered for duty over Christmas so other volunteers could spend time with their families
I will go up to my son's mad house on Christmas afternoon to see the children. It will be chaos with 5 children, 2 dogs 2 cats and the school hamster
