You know how much I love people, right? It pains me to see when people are taken advantage of, hurt or lonely. It especially tugs at my heart to see people lonely at Christmas. I’ve been there.
I used to ADORE Christmas – think ‘crazy Christmas lady’ and you’re close. I’d decorate early, play music and bake cookies… I’d be the one beaming crazily in the store (maybe even giggling) as I shopped for gifts. And I L-O-V-E-D spending Christmas Eve with my family.
But divorce changed it – took it all away. Christmas Eve became the loneliest night of the year for me. I understand now why some people don’t like Christmas – it can be excruciating for the lonely. It can be positively joyless.
But I’m taking the joy back! No more lonely Christmas Eves for me – and hopefully, not for you either. For the second consecutive year, I’m hosting a free, public event for anyone who is alone on Christmas Eve. Adults are welcome to attend this free Christmas dinner. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, get together with friends, and surround yourself with people. You are not alone! Come on out to the Lions’ Club on Christmas Eve from 6:00-10:00pm. Admission is free, and all adults are welcome. The feast will be supplied by Pioneer Catering, there will be gifts too! You are invited! Please come out and join us.
Don’t be alone this Christmas.
