10 New Ways to Celebrate Christmas Alone
9. Remember Christmases past
People often become nostalgic during the Christmas season. If you’re feeling that way, dig out your home movies and photograph albums. Spend time ensconced in the glow of memories you’ve made throughout the years and take time to remember and honor those loved ones who are no longer with you. You can honor people you love by preparing their favorite meal, listening to their favorite song or watching a movie that you used to watch together. Decorate your Christmas tree according to your family traditions or make DIY decorations using family photos, mementos and other lovely trinkets. If you feel like overwhelmed with emotions consider writing a letter to people who cannot be with you now. It doesn’t matter that they will never read it; it will help you to relieve your feelings and honor your loved ones.
