How will you celebrate Christmas when you are away from your loved ones?How will you celebrate the holiday season when your partner is away from you?Whichever question you will answer would be fine. As for me, I am quite intrigued and thinking how will I celebrate Christmas away from my real family and loved ones. I kept on figuring out how will I spend it alone, now that I am living solo and independent and goes to work the next day (Dec. 26). Isn't it so sad?On the other hand, my boyfriend is miles away from me and is in abroad. I was thinking, his situation is worse than I am. Can you please share your thoughts, how will I spend the holiday not being too lonely and sad?

How sad...i just dont know if both gender is into this situation they will have the same response to it. I will be also spending this coming Christmas alone in a country where it is not celebrated openly. I am lucky i suppose because i have my roommates but i worry about my GF that is alone in her appartment. Hope to talk to her that day. Why not join parties in your work place or be with your relatives there during the holiday. dont let yourself to be alone... good luck!Advance Merry Christmas.

Mine is christmas without her. Yes , I will be alone this christmas . Not actually alone but without my Girlfriend. Its kinda sad . We've been together for many years and we love each other. This is the 2nd christmas i am not with her. But every holidays or special day we talk to each other in yahoo messenger for like 3-5 hours . And share some past memories thats all we do ever since we live far away from each other. And advance merry christmas to all lol.

I'm currently working in China, so I'll be spending Christmas this year alone - for the first time in 27 years. I'm actually looking forward to it though. Because my parents are divorced, every Christmas since I was 4 or 5 has involved racing from one side of Melbourne to the other in order to visit family on both sides. This year I get to relax and not worry about the family fights that have occured on Christmas day for the past three years, and will likely happen again this year. If I have the money, I might even spend Christmas and Boxing Day in Hong Kong doing some shopping.

i have four children, way back in 2003 i was at japan working and that was my very first christmas (hope it was the last too) that i have to celebrate outside the Philippines and away from my children. since i am a singer and work is during nights it was not that emotional because we are busy during the nights and sleep mostly during the day. though it was really sad for me and for my children too they well understand that i am away for the reasons that it is all for them.

oh...that is sad...i experienced the same two years in a row. that was in 2002 and 2003. the first one i was in singapore and the second one i was in the united states. although those trips only took 3 months, the pain of separation was really hard. especially that people don't celebrate the holidays like they do here in the philippines...but what made me survive then was that i went with friends who had families who invited me to join them for christmas dinner. that was in the US. i slept over at a friend's house and they even included me in the oepning of gifts--yep they had gifts for me. i joined in their family conversations. it wasn't as fun as back home because you know that you are not part of the family, but it certainly beats spending christmas alone. in singapore, i made food for everyone in the house, so when they came home that night after work, we had something to share. just surround yourself with people...and try not to think about loneliness. oh by the way, do call your loved ones okay. they will also appreciate it. God bless you maean and may you have a merry christmas! :-)
