It actually did happen to me a few years back when I purposely gotten myself very drunk to the point of passing out because of a broken heart. It's really torturing to have a broken heart during Christmas time because it adds more pain to the fact that you expected to spend Christmas with that someone 'special' and there you are realizing you're not that special to him/her at all.

The saddest Christmas Eve for our family would have to have been Christmas Eve 1996. That year we were at my Aunt and Grandma's house celebrating with my Dad's side of the family when the phone rang at their house (this was before we all had cellular phones). It was my mother's sister-in-law on the phone. Her oldest brother, who had been in hospice had just passed away. We had to leave the celebration of one half of our family to tend to the grief of the other half of our family.

I remember having an unhappy New Year last year. My brother's wife and son have to be celebrating the new Year with us because that is the traditional family gathering to us. Unfortunately, there was an emergency at my brother's wife side. My sister-in-law's father was confined to the hospital and definitely they have to attend to it. Other than that emergency, I have not spent the Holidays with my boyfriend for 2 consecutive years. This coming Holidays will be the 3rd year which I would not be spending with him because he is working abroad and has to be away. It is an unhappy holidays, but I guess I should not think that it is an unhappy days for me. Every time I see my nephews enjoying the holidays, that would be sufficient for me to be joyful too.
