Spending the holidays alone can be a lot of fun, with the right attitude and some creativity.

The festive season is almost here and the preparations have already begun. Some of you are lucky enough to go home and spend the holidays with your family, but there are also some who cannot make the trip back home and will probably have to spend Christmas alone. Fret not, because we know a few ways you could spend Christmas alone and still have a great time. It might even turn out to be the best Christmas ever. Let’s begin.

Sort out your Christmas Playlist

There are two types of people in the world: those who love to create their own personalized playlist and those who would prefer to let Apple Music or Spotify do the job for them. Whoever you may be, get grooving to the songs already.

Pamper Yourself

This can mean putting on face masks and giving yourself a mani- pedi, getting your hair did and buying a new outfit or heading outside for a run around the neighborhood. Whatever you typically do to make you feel your best, plan for it and do it.

Buy Yourself a Gift or Two

It’s Christmas, so you definitely need to buy yourself a gift or two. But don’t go to crazy — keep it within a reasonable budget. And you know the best part? You can open it whenever you’d like!

Start a New Tradition

Take full advantage of the opportunity to start a new tradition that you can take with you for years to come. Whether it’s eating breakfast for dinner or dessert for starters, it’s up to YOU to decide. Go bonkers!

Cook a feast, or have it delivered.

If cooking relaxes you, then make a feast for two...for one. And eat it all. If cooking stresses you out, then hop on to any of the delivery apps available and pay someone else to prepare and deliver your feast.
