How to Survive The Holidays as a Single Person

This article made my day… it’s so funny, and yet useful! ^.^


Here are a few tips that I really enjoyed:

  • The two most important items of clothing you can own as a single person during the holidays is a killer party outfit (preferably something dark, vampy and dramatic) and the softest, most comfortable, and possibly unflattering pair of pajamas you can find. This way, you can spend the holidays either as the hottest person in the room at a party, or swathed in comfortable material watching movies in bed. Win/win.
  • Add a little pep to your hot chocolate in the form of whiskey and cayenne pepper. Hey, it’s the little things.
  • Enjoy spending time with your family without the pressure of having them judge your significant other. Because that is stressful, when you’re half furious at your family for being judgmental, and half furious at your significant other for saying/doing the thing that they’re being judgmental about. Who needs that at Christmas?! Not you!
  • Bake cookies for everyone at work, or better yet, volunteer somewhere. Seriously, there are bigger issues in the world than your lack of relationship status. A little random act of kindness will get you whistling along to Christmas carols in no time.
  • Embrace the holiday gluttony. Another gingerbread cookie? Don’t mind if I do.
  • Start planning that badass thing you’re going to buy with all your Christmas money/returned gift credits. A fur coat? A Wii? Treat yo self.
  • Fake it til you make it. The best way to ensure you have a good time during the holidays is to just pretend you’re having a great time during the holidays. A convincing performance may go a long way in convincing yourself, too.
