Alone on Thanksgiving Nov. 24th, 2012 @ 06:36 PM Reply

So, I almost spent the entire Thanksgiving weekend alone at an almost-empty college. My family didn't have the resources to get me, and no one I knew from back home was either busy or didn't want to answer my phone.

Then, one of my friends suggested that I come to his house for Turkey Day. I went with him and two other friends, and we've all been having fun all weekend.

Now, being alone on a holiday is absolutely no fun. However, I did see a positive to my previous situation. I figured I could see if I could spend several days alone with minimal himan contact, since that's what's going to happen for a bit soon after I leave college. This theory fell through when I cave into my friend's request, but I always wonder how it would go...

In any case, what do you all think about being alone on a big holiday? Could you make due with no one to talk with?

I don't celebrate holidays, so I really don't care. The only time I would enjoy (to some extent) being with family is if I got with all my real family, but they're on the other side of the planet, so that won't happen. The only one that I would like to go out and do something is Halloween just for the lolz.

I would go insane. I just have to talk to keep myself sane most of the time

Thanksgiving isn't real

celebrate something real, like Talk Like A Pirate Day

Being that I go to a small private school with under 2,000 students and I have absolutely no friends or anyone to talk to there, I seem to manage to put up with it.

I really don't like holidays because they remind me of being tortured by having to spend time with my family.

I live with my family, so I'm never really alone. I do understand what you're getting at, because you should probably be around other people. At least Halloween is a holiday where there's kind of a guarantee that you're at least going to SEE some other people.

I was reading this Cracked article where it said it was actually good to have a large family. It makes sense, as you would have more people to support you, so try to look at it in a positive way.

That reminds me, I didn't have any stuffing on Thanksgiving! My mom just forgot about it! Well, we didn't celebrate Easter this year because my mom was tired, so it's better than that at least.

I don't really care about holidays, so I don't care if I'm alone or not. It won't bother me.

When I don't have to celebrate a holiday with someone I don't celebrate it, it leaves most of them as free days for me except for Christmas where my mother takes me for a meal and my birthday where again she takes me for a meal.

Thanksgiving is just another day, you know. So is Christmas, Halloween, what have you. Just because some people have a festival or feast on that day doesn't mean it's really any different from any other day. Shouldn't be any harder to just kick back and do whatever the fuck you want.

I spend most days alone, so it wouldn't matter.

It seems like a lot of people have the same things for Christmas dinner that they do for Thanksgiving dinner. So I'm just going to wait until Christmas to get my rightful filling of stuffing this year. The saddest thing is that I work as a food service aide and there was stuffing everywhere on Thanksgiving which I worked!
