    Why do people look for relationships when Christmas is approaching?

    Nice Christmas graphic, heartstrings! I think that Christmas reminds people of family, love and relationships. The season brings out longing for relationships and possibly reminds us of past romances that didn't last. (I'm thinking of Dan Fogelberg's Same Old Lang Syne.) Nostalgic Christmas memories, holiday traditions, lost romance--I think all these add to this longing for relationships at Christmas.

    No one wants to be alone!

    I spent five straight Christmases and New Year's Eves alone and hated every second. I had a little Charlie Brown Christmas tree with maybe two presents under it. That little tree reminded me how alone I was, and there's nothing more pathetic (to me, anyway) than watching the ball drop in Times Square on television.

    Holidays are based around family, friends, and most importantly couples. We are marketed to by various companies to exchange gifts with our mates, take romantic getaway vacations, and on top of that Hollywood releases several romantic comedies tied into the Christmas and New Year's Eve Holidays. A lot of romantics want to stay in relationship at least through Valentine's Day.
    Having said that there are other people who "schedule" their breakups before the holidays! They don't want to have to go through the motions with someone they have already decided is not a good fit for them.

    Because few people want to go through the holidays and feel lonely. It's one of the reasons why suicide rates go up at this time.

    Christmas is about the birth of Jesus Christ. Why don't we devote ourselves to the real meaning of this occasion. smile

      Even Christians would rather celebrate the birth of Christ with someone they love. Don't you think? Truth be told, one could worship god alone always. There's no need to go to church. Humans want contact with others. Being in a relationship is fine.
