    Hi remember!..Yes,I am alone this Xmas...Well,my dogs would feel aggrieved if they knew I had said that...It is hard,coz we are all programmed for 2togetherness" etc etc.It's a painful time but it gives me a bit of solace knowing a few people who spend family Christmases that sound like a nightmare!So here's a toast to being alone and we are very blessed having our wonderful pets! All the best,Sally

    I'm alone too but to be honest I think it's best that way as can't cope with other people around me at the moment just want to be on my own as I normally am

    Hi - fortunately, I'm staying with my wider family for christmas. But that doesn't stop me from feeling lonely ... Nonetheless, I'm glad of the company. I do hope you (and your cats) have an okay time. Take care.

    Not alone with mum and two kids, I need to put a smile on my face for the sake of them, deep down I would prefer to be alone.  Enjoy dinner with the cats and I am sure they will definitely enjoy the turkey dinner. xx

    Hello I know how horrible you must be feeling? 

    Its good to have pet at least

    I myself was looking at this situation managed to avoid it now just

    But its the absolute pressure to conform to this brain washing even that its now become

    I realised that there is a huge stigma in saying your alone on Christmas day

    Its similar to that question who is next of kin on certain documents

    You know your in a real mess when you really struggle to think who do I put down on the form

    And you feel that pain inside

    What amazes me is there is going to be 4 million people alone in uk this Christmas day

    And half a million of them are elderly

    So many people alone of all ages

    But this does not surprise me as I went through my city where I live today and everyone is rushing around everywhere no time for anyone

    And many holding hands smiling

    Children with parents

    Everyone giving the impression there okay and not lonely at all

    There are so many once they get on train burying there faces on Facebook and texts on phone

    So it gives a small idea of why so many are forgotten especially this time of year

    As no one wants to admit there alone

    The best one is the Church

    They are meant to care for anyone alone but if you check out there websites there is nothing for Christmas day

    Apart from  a odd few offer a Christmas day church service but nothing else

    Yes, I am in the same boat as you. It doesn't bother me much anymore. I love going to midnight mass and singing. My dog is a great cuddler and good company. It could always be worse... I could be married to someone I despise or having to go to inlaws house etc. I'm having dinner with the woman I take care of during the week and the food is excellent where she lives.
