Christmas alone can be nice. There are all sorts of concerts and special markets to enjoy. Just be sure to reserve your Christmas dinner since a lot of restaurants will be closed and the ones that are open can fill up quickly. I'd aim for a large, friendly restaurant, possibly in a hotel that was trying to make the holidays special. They would have decorations and traditional holiday foods . . . and lots of people.

Parks and city streets in NYC are great at Christmas. Have a great time!

Sounds awesome! Thanks will take all of this into consideration :)

One way to increase the chances of celebrating with others is to stay at a hostel or guesthouse. People are generally happier to meet other travelers at hostels than at hotels.

You know that's a good point!!
I did my first hostel in Mexico and didn't had a great experience but been hearing that europe hostels are great only because the culture is different. Not sure about americas!

Hi, do you live in the US? I have been flirting with the idea of getting away over the Christmas period but in Europe.

Yes! I live in U.S. You're planning on traveling to Europe for Christmas?

I did Christmas on my own in Sydney last year. Had a great time! I would recommend doing it, but you do have to be a certain type of personality (which, if you're considering going, you probably have). Talk to people, join people, be trusting but not too trusting!

That's awesome to hear!
How did you put yourself out there and meet people during Christmas? Id imagine during Christmas week everyone just wants to hang with their group of family and friends and don't really notice outsiders

It's always better to travel with someone at least on days like Christmas.

Yeah, I know. Maybe I'd just go to the Caribbean where it won't remind me that I'm missing Christmas <3

Could you look at volunteering so you’re not alone on Christmas Day? In my opinion that’s the only day people would be wrapped up with family. Volunteering in a soup kitchen or a care home would mean you’re with a group, will probably get a nice meal and are doing a good deed. I’m doing that in the UK this year.

Also the dating app Bumble has a friend search bit - exactly like the dating side (swiping yes or no) except you’re finding people to just hang out with rather than date.

Hey Friend,

I don't think so that celebrating Christmas alone is a good idea... whether you are going to a concert or a local market to see it's better to have a companion or a friend to enjoy, chit chat and eat along otherwise it becomes very boring.
So rather than celebrating it alone, it's better to celebrate it with your family and close ones.
