    There is often a lot of opportunity to serve in the community such as helping out with holiday food hampers at the local food bank, or volunteering at a community event, which are good places to meet new people. This may be a good distraction from the loneliness you may be having.

    By playing games listening music and by watching movies.

    By spending time outside walking or just enjoying what nature has provided.  This is what I call my 'soul time' and it should be taken in large doses and not only at Christmas or on holidays.  Staying indoors can make one feel depressed.  One can feel immediately uplifted so if you can, make the effort, I believe you will be rewarded for your effort.

    get a batch of your favorite Christmas Cds and play them while preparing your favorite meal.  then dress in your most comfy night clothes, wrap up in a blanket and watch your favorite Christmas movies.  But don't forget to turn off your phone so that you won't be disturbed by pesky wrong numbers and bill collectors. don't worry, you'll be fine. smile

    It's not so bad. I get in lots of treats, make a cornish hen for dinner with all the trimmings, watch Christmas movies and TV shows.
