I'm the only Christian in my family. My parents and brother are Buddhists but they don't go to the temple often either.
Every Christmas, I feel so alone because I don't even have a tree to decorate and I don't get invited to many Christmas parties. I do get invited to one or sometimes 2 and I go and have good time but I wonder, because some of my non-Christian friends sometimes have about 7 parties to go to at a time.
I mean, I'm not exactly Scrooge or something, so why do I feel so alone during Christmas.
This Christmas, I will go to the Christmas Eve Service at my church and if I can get up early, the Christmas Service too! Maybe I'll start saving up and maybe I'll get a small tree this year, and maybe some nice Christmas CDs to play in my room for atmosphere.
I've also decided to bake some biscuits or something and wrap them up prettily to give to non-Christians and Christians alike in the dialysis center I go to. Maybe in all the joy of giving the baked goods, I'll feel less alone this Christmas.
Any suggestions to feel less alone this Christmas and all Christmases to come welcome.....
