Yes, I'm looking forward to the holidays, but I think that even if I didn't have family to be with, I would seek out opportunities to make the holiday special for someone else, whether it's serving meals in a homeless shelter, or volunteering to work a shift for someone who HAS a family, hosting a military person far from home, etc.. the opportunities are there if you just look for them.

Yes! It's going to be so much more fun than last year. I had my hip replaced this fall and I feel so much better than I have in over a year. It'll be fun decorating, shopping and celebrating because I'm not in pain.

I live half-way around the world from my family, and I go home at Christmas and in the summer. I leave in a month and I already am counting the hours until I see my family and friends.

Yes I am! I love it. This is my favorite time of year. Minus the cold. Can't do anything about that.

~Just my .02 cents. Not sure that it is worth that much~

Definitely looking forward to them.
So many fun things to do with friends and family, and every one is in a festive mood.

Hosting 12 at our house for the Thanksgiving feast kicks off this holiday season.

Are you looking forward to the holidays?

I'm some where in the middle myself. I don't have any children or close family it's just my husband and I and sometimes it's kind of hard to get into the spirit.

Any tips?
