#OtvTIPS: 10 Real Benefits Of Being Single For The Holidays

by

Here’s why being single during the holiday season is
actually awesome:
1. You don’t have to compromise. No need to split up
holidays at each respective family’s home, you’re
flying solo. Go to the parties that serve your favorite
booze and give the best gifts. Sorry, Aunt Joanne, you
lose again this year.
2. You can spoil yourself. You wrote your holiday list,
so it just seems like the best idea that you just buy
them for yourself. You deserve it; you’ve worked hard
this year.
3. You don’t have to buy someone something just
because they want it. “Oh, you want a new
PlayStation game? I just LOVE when you sit in all day
and play. Of course I will contribute to the habit!”
4. You can create new traditions for yourself. Go for a
quick run before everyone else wakes up, take a long
bubble bath or sip coffee on the front porch by
yourself as you watch the snow fall.
5. And keep the old traditions. Run around in your
onesie pajamas with a top knot and no makeup on.
Sip hot chocolate with your Mom while you help her
make your favorite cookies.
6. More eggnog for you! And hot toddies, Irish
coffees, even a Tom and Jerry or two. Stick a bottle
of whiskey in your own stocking — Who put that
there?
7. You can run into an old fling from your hometown.
There is nobody to tell you no; go ahead and make
the bad decision. For old time’s sake!
8. Donate your time to those in need. Single or not,
we are very fortunate. The holidays are a great time
to find ways to make a difference in someone’s life
and make them feel loved.
9. You can kiss all of the babes you want. Kissing
under the mistletoe is an old tradition, and let me tell
you, that stuff is plentiful around the holiday season.
Boom!
10. You don’t have to experience the awkward meet
and greet. Because sometimes, when you’re off work
and in relaxation mode, the only thing you want to do
is eat ice cream out of the carton and catch up on
episodes of Pretty Little Liars.
So yes, I will come home for the holidays alone. I will
spend my time with friends and family (who never
judge me for drinking too much wine) and help my
parents decorate the Christmas tree. I’ll catch up with
those that I may have lost touch with in the past year,
visit the local bar that I used to work at, go shopping
for myself and take time to volunteer and give back to
others this holiday season.
Life is very full. Full of fun, laughter, adventure,
success, change and most of all, love. Remember, if
you’re single, in a new relationship, married or
whatever else, spread the love this holiday season.
And if a young suitor does happen to come your way,
keep your eyes peeled for some mistletoe nearby.
