Must admit I very often get "blue" at this time of year. I simply don't enjoy it and often have a feeling of dread over Christmans day. Now I know its often a lonely miserable time for many but I don't see myself in that category. I'm not alone or too poor to enjoy it - I just don't I've got loads of freinds around me - admittedly not much family but thats not the issue as that keeps me quite happy! We are close I just hate the full on family thing at Xmas. Last couple fo years have been with friends and fun. This year with other half's family (3 kids, 2 grand children AND ex husband!). In the past I have had some pretty rubbish Xmas's with my family which may heve left memories. Maybe its coz my birthdays so close. But other manage ok. I don't know. Just feeling a bit down and sorry for myself and can only blame Chritmas and for no good reason. Am I alone?
