It is difficult for me because I go to my daughter's house to celebrate with her family on Christmas morning. In order to make it easy on her, we celebrate with everyone at her house . . . including my ex husband, his wife and her son. I just keep quiet and stay in the background . . . and feel so uncomfortable because everyone is a couple except me. I've been doing this for six years and I've been divorced longer than I was married. Will it ever get easy? sigh . . .

Christmas was very hard. I've been a widow since April. All the other holidays were OK. But Christmas was very difficult. Going to midnight Mass alone was the worst. I sing in the Choir and had a very difficult time getting through it. Having someone to be there with me as my husband was for 38 Christmas would be a wonderful thing. Maybe next year that will be the case.

Well, I'm surrounded by the love of my daughters and family on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. These holidays are always celebrated as a family unit. I can always grab a daughter to join me as my Christmas or New Years date for the evening if there is a party to attend. Yet, on Valentines Day, it is a day for just concentrating on just that one special person in your life , and showering him with love ; be it a special romantic dinner and a movie, flowers ,or a box of chocolates, it should be a day to celebrate your love. I think it is on this day when I feel particularly lonely.(Ok, go ahead and play that violin. LOL!)

I dislike the question. There's nothing "wrong" with being single--even if there IS occasional loneliness. Would you ask married people which holiday they find the most difficult to endure as a couple? No. Being single is not an inferior state. It's a different state, even though likely temporary. Why automatically assume that holidays are difficult?

I agree with Paul. Those of us who have been rejected by a spouse, and her/his subsequent extended family, are suddenly without at holiday time. If we can only realize our own value and how much we are wanted by countless other souls, it will inspire us to provide holiday cheer rather than lacking it.

If we think loneliness we will be lonely. Our thoughts, ultimately, become our destiny.

Christmas hurts for me because it has become so commercialized so I feel alienated but at least I have family. Valentine's Day is painful because there seems to be so much personal pressure to pledge your love to someone and if that someone is missing it is like the whole day is salt in the open wound of your heart. But New Year's is the worst because the day seems already to be predicated upon the phony premise that things will be so much better the next day despite the likelihood that most people just wake up hungover and commited to nothing more than their same old routines.
