You’ve probably heard this a million times and in so many ways, but…..from me to you….Merry christmas and happy holidays to those who don’t celebrate christmas. It’s officially that day we’ve all been preparing for. I unfortunately haven’t spent christmas with my family for a couple of years, but I spend most christmas days with friends, or extended family who live many states away. My first christmas away from my family was actually ok, I had an awesome group of friends from college and we cooked a ton of food, exchanged gifts and just had a good time with the girls. My second christmas without my family was the toughest, I chose to work extra shifts at work to distract myself because I was so homesick, it also snowed a ton in Washington and I had no power in my apartment for 3 days!!! – worst christmas ever (ha)
The other christmas days after that(2), I would either spend it with my roommate and some friends (invite people over) or with my fiancé and co-workers, nothing too crazy haha. This year, a friend invited us to a christmas party, but I will be working late that day, and am planning on getting some yummy food for my co-workers who worked all day christmas 🙂
On the other hand, my family gets together every year with everybody else in the family (I have a huge family), and just have a good ol’ time while sending me photos and videos of everything I am missing ;( Next year though, I will be going home for christmas, so thats something to look forward to.
What are you guys doing for christmas? Anything fun? I wanna know..
For all of you that don’t get to do much/see family for christmas, it is not the end of the world, the true meaning of christmas is in your heart so don’t feel left out by everyone else having a good time.
Again, Merry christmas! Happy holidays!
