I was just wondering who here had actually made a conscious decision to spend a holiday alone. Not out of necessity, but an actual choice. I've decided that I'm probably going to spend the day alone at Christmas. Just wondering how abnormal this might be

This thread topic is gold. I've been on this website for 8 years and I've never come up with anything like this. So yeah. Great job TS[457undead].

That sounds decently depressing, but I suppose it depends on your reasons.

Girlfriend is going to spend it with friends. I dislike said friends. My family are back in the UK and I'm in the states. Day alone seems preferable to a day tolerating people and pretending to have a good time.

Funny old thing, being alone doesn't automatically mean you're lonely. The same idea works in reverse.

Christmas, as far as I'm concerned is just another day of the year.

I always get lonely on holidays regardless of who I'm with so I tend to surround myself with as many people as possible and then leave early when I realize it didn't work

Except for Christmas, that shits tight

the only holiday i'd like to spend alone is christmas

christmas is that special time of the year where your family gets considerably more angry and fucked up than it was before

the best part about holidays is the themed porn

"Curvy Babe Is Thankful For Her Lovers Giant Dick"

"Sexy Elf Sucks Santa's Jolly Red Candy Cane"

"Jesus Wasn't The ONLY Thing To Rise On The Third Day"

etc.

I wish I could choose to be alone, but I will never have a good excuse.

Yes.

Went to Massachusetts alone (if you count that as a holiday) because I wanted to keep away from the iron grip of my parents as I visited my friend.

I've also spent quite a few Christmases away from my parents and those years I did were the best Christmases ever. So much less stressful. I did miss visiting my other relatives though because they're kinda cool.

I stayed in residence one year in university during Christmas. No one was there and I distinctly remember watching every Highlander movie.

Actually wasn't bad not having gf or friends around for a few days.

I wouldn't mind if it ended up that way (no that's a lie I would mind so much but I'd pretend to not mind in order not to be sad) and I definitely wouldn't seek it out on purpose.

I wish I could do this sometimes, but my family is insistent.

I think this may be a cultural difference but over here it's nothing rare for people to just stay at home because they can't be arsed to care about said holiday. Actually, almost every New Years eve me or one of my friends stayed at home just because we felt like being couch potatoes.

It's not really about going out and partying because everyone does it but more about just getting the friends who feel like doing something together that year together and doing it. Sometimes this means going to a club and raving your ass off, sometimes it's getting hammered at a friend's place of pub and sometimes you just don't feel like doing anything so stay at home and do whatever the hell you want.

In general holidays aren't taken as seriously. Christmas isn't even celebrated at my house and most people over a certain age don't give a damn about Halloween - the only ones that really care are students because it's in October when there's a shitton of parties in Ljubljana so there's bound to be some that are Halloween themed. Valentines day isn't even really a thing and Easter is just for religious families.

Hell, the only holiday I can think of that is expected to be actively celebrated - as in spent getting hammered in the capital - by the majority is New Year's eve.

I'd like to do this more often, but I have obligations to people. I don't often get a day to just relax, and I don't even care about holidays or being social, but I'd cause too many problems if I make the choice not to spend time with my family or my girlfriend.

My girlfriend and I are both introverts, but for some reason, she makes exception for our relationship. For example, I usually sleep through the new year celebrations but last year, she wasn't about to let me do that because she wanted to do that thing where you kiss out of the passing year and into the new one. We both think it's lame but we become corny when it comes to each other. If it were up to me, I wouldn't do anything special for my birthday or our anniversary.

My parents are sentimental, too, and they insist on being together for stupid events like getting a driver's licence or taking my picture after I got my citizenship papers, so you can imagine they insist I treat holidays as special days. They ask me to request a day off from work for my birthday but I'd much rather treat it like a regular day (see above). So my birthdays always turn into me making other people happy, which seems to be a role reversal compared to American cultural norms.

I pretty much do. I'm with my parents for a little bit like a normal day and that's it. Holidays have been pretty dumb past few years. /edgypost

That's something I didn't think of. My dad is actually from Slovenia so I probably grew up looking at his way of dealing with events like Christmas and New Year etc.

I spend nearly every new years alone by choice.
Most Christmases are spent eating with family, then disappearing back to somewhere by myself.
I'm genuinely just happier alone in most situations.
