Blogmas Day 6: How To Celebrate The Holidays When You’re Alone

Though the holidays are about togetherness and spending it with the ones you love, not everyone can do that. Sadly, some people celebrate the holiday season alone. There are many different cases for why this is so, but it doesn’t always have to be as sad as it sounds.

Celebrating the holidays alone can get lonely but it can also be a unique experience, offering a chance for self-reflection, relaxation, and indulging in activities that bring you joy. Here are a few ways to make the most of celebrating the holidays alone!

Plan a Self-Care Day

Everyone deserves a little self-care, especially during the holidays! Just because you’re spending the season alone doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still look nice for yourself! Treat yourself to a day of pampering! You can even make it festive by using a holiday themed sheet mask or painting your nails a festive color. Don’t forget to blast Christmas music while doing so!

Cook a Special Meal

Spending the holidays alone doesn’t mean you have to eat a frozen pizza on Christmas day. You should still take the time to prepare a delicious meal just for yourself. Think about your favorite holiday meal and cook that for yourself! Eating alone may not be as fun as it would be with others, but you still deserve to enjoy a nice meal. Treat yourself to your favorite holiday dessert as well!

Make Virtual Connections

You may be alone physically, but you don’t have to be alone virtually! Not everyone has people in their life to connect with, but if you do, connect with your loved ones virtually. Whether it be your friends, family, or both, schedule video calls to stay connected with them during the holiday season!

Watch Christmas Movies

There are so many Christmas movies, new and old, which provides the perfect opportunity for a Christmas movie marathon! You may be alone, but there’s nothing like spending a little quality time with Christmas movies, a cozy blanket, and delicious eggnog.

Reflect and Set Goals

December being the last year of the month means a new year is vastly approaching. Being alone provides a great opportunity to use this time for self-reflection and goal-setting! Think about the past year, the lessons learned, and the things you are grateful for. Set intentions and make plans for the upcoming year.

Give Back

If you don’t have anyone to be with for the season, physically and/or virtually, consider volunteering or donating to a local charity. Spend your time alone by being with others who are also alone and in need! Helping others in need is not only a great thing to do for the community, but it can bring a sense of fulfillment and purpose during the holiday season.


Celebrating the holidays alone doesn’t mean you have to feel lonely or bored. Embrace this opportunity as a chance to nurture yourself, explore new festive activities, and discover a new joy of solitude.
