    Personally I am not, but if I was, I would be helping out ppl in any capacity especially feeding or just being an ear to listen too. I guess that would be corny but that's just me. Shelters at this time could really use ppl's help so I might just go and do it anyway.

    Not this year, though I have before. There's a huge opportunity to let this suck for you. If you are alone, treat yourself. Spoil yourself. Spend some money on yourself. Plenty of things to keep you occupied - games, tv, interwebs. Drink - so long as you don't get melancholy. Don't feel sorry for yourself... maybe acknowledge that there's some level of suck (if there is) - but then enjoy yourself with time on your hands and whatever treats your got yourself. This from someone who has been there.

    In between marriages I have spent several Christmas' alone. Sometimes I miss those times. :)

    Don't get me wrong... I love my family and all, but sometimes I really just like to have ME time.

    I am alone. My girl friend is thousand miles away. She will back on January. We speak each night but it's all. I am not sad for that. I see that as an opportunity to work more. I love my internet business.

    The third year in a row for me, and actually I welcome it! I treat it like a regular day work without interruption and generally have a good day.

    The parttime gf is with her family, the kids have their own lives, and the ex is not anywhere near me. What could be better.

    I am fortunate to be spending Christmas with my wife and kidos and the mother in law, which is just fine for me. I work a day job and my internet marketing 263 days a year, and I relish taking Thanksgiving and Christmas off without doing any work at all.

    I like to spend the day with my family and fly my remote controlled helicopters.

    Christmas never really meant that much to me. I have very little family and I have spent Christmas alone (literally) many times. I know how it feels man. Hang in there.
    I am blessed this year to be in the city where my brother lives, so I will be spending it with his wife and him... A nice change of pace.
    If you don't want to spend it alone GO TO CHURCH. Everyone will welcome you there and be very happy to see you. Most of them have food and fun... everything you could want in Christmas! :)
    Besides; last I knew, the only person that really matters on this day is Jesus and he is with you always.

    If you are in Jacksonville FL and you are spending Christmas alone and do not want to, hit me up... my wife and I, along with my Stepdaughter and her husband are going out to eat at a Japanese restaurant in Argyle.

    Dinner is on me and we would be happy to have you spend Christmas dinner with us.

    Yes I am spending it alone.

    However, I will be busy enjoying the profits I will be making on that day while all of you celebrate...

    I'm not spending it alone, although i kinda feel sorry for those of you who are and feel bad about it, but those of you who like it, good for you!

    I wouldn't want to spend christmas alone and would take every measure possible to prevent it from happen!

    I'll try to post a free bot here for Christmas or script or method here... so everyone can have a nice Christmas. If you can't figure out something to do on Christmas feel free to PM I'm sure I can figure something out for you.

    The main thing is your attitude. If you are spending it alone take some time and think about how you want to attack the new year in biz and in life. I am not spending it alone and I am fighting to find time to do these things. Maybe you should consider yourself lucky. It depends on how you look at it.

    I'm not alone, but I am a single child, so when I go home for the holidays, it's pretty much just me and my mom. My dad is jewish and doesn't even celebrate christmas or any holidays. My mom tries to make it special, but it's really not any different than any other day. I don't really have an issue with it because I don't really see christmas or holidays as that important. Maybe it's because I have never really had any big family things, but I don't really care either way lol. It's just another day surrounded by consumer shopping in my personal opinion.. I wouldn;t worry about it man.

    Spend the last xmas alone. Wife and kids gone, divorced this summer. That was fucked up... Things are getting slightly better though... This summer i met a married woman, and she is the ONE. She just bought a house for her own and kid as she in in the middle of her divorce now. Now usually i am not a marriage fucker but they already got trough hard times and with her i played my card: Nice guys always finish last.

    The first eve she will spending xmas with her family as its all a mistery for them, but they understand it now slightly, but we diceded it would be better if i did not came this year as its all to fresh etc. Her husband is a millionaire but it came with a price.

    After 7 years going to bed alone she found with me what she was missing with him. Now i am just a simple IM... But man she is the one...

    2nd Chirstmas she comes over and stays so thats great...

    The only problem was my work. As i am full time IM she did not understand. Make monies from the net?

    Gave her on a birthday a week ago a neat diamond ring. Now she understands...
