Not everyone will be travelling to be with their families during Christmas. If you have a tight working schedule for instance, you will just have to remain and work.

But that’s no reason to worry. Well, it might be a little intimidating especially if you have never spent another Christmas away from your family. But hey, you can always spice up things all by yourself.

Here are some fun ideas for anyone who will be spending Christmas alone:


When was the last time you gave back to the society? You can take up this opportunity to do charity work. Buy gifts and visit patients in hospitals, those in refugee camps or street families. Giving comes with a sense of self fulfillment and joy.

You may not have enough money to buy gifts to the less fortunate, but you can help around with work. Visit a children’s home, home for the elderly or help clean up the environment.


You have been wanting to paint your house or try out a new recipe? This is the perfect time. Decorate your house, make a mat, draw Santa or use your skills to make something that you will always remember. Just make it fun and memorable.

You always visit places with plan. How about doing things differently this time? Just leave the house, follow a certain road and see where it leads you. You could also visit a random place you have never been before just for adventure.

You have worked the whole year, gone through rough moments and now it’s time to appreciate your strong self. Visit the spa and have a massage, go shopping, have dinner at that classy restaurant you’ve never been before and treat yourself to a candle lit dinner as you listen to the Christmas carols.


Get the recent movie from the movie shop and just relax and watch. Be sure to pick one that will hook you from the beginning to the end.

There might be someone else who badly needs company as you do. If they call you, don’t hesitate to join them. You can have some more fun together.
