How do other married couples w/out children or with grown children enjoy the holidays? How do you make them special? All the holidays we had growing up were swarming with family and friends. They were joyous, full of laughter, good times and full bellies.
But it's just the two of us. No children. We don't have any friends that don't do something with their families. We have the added issue in that our families live eight hours away and it's not possible for us to visit them but every other year and only for Christmas, and due to my leg we might have to miss this one. :(
I tried to make it special in years past by making a good meal, but it really is pointless to go to hours of work for just two, all the time hubby sits alone. So we have started eating out. :shrug:
Any other suggestions to make our holidays more meaningful, happy, joyous? It's really lonely sometimes. We try to cuddle each other and make the best of it, but it doesn't take away the hurt of being by ourselves so far away from those we love, and having no children of our own to focus the holidays on. :(
