Considering I have no parents or family outside of the family I have made for myself, I have become thankful for every holiday that comes. I can now feel good to know that I can spend it with my husband and children. Nothing sucked more than being the person who had no family to see when everyone else was bragging about theirs. Then again back then I was young and stupid and thoughts change as we mature. I still wouldn't want to go a holiday without my children.
