10 Benefits Of Being Single During The Holiday Season

By  | 

Being single during the holidays can seem like a curse. But it doesn’t have to be! I have been single for the majority of my life during the holidays and I have to say, I don’t feel that I’m missing much. In fact, I think I am enjoying being single this holiday season! Why am I happy being single? Well, here is a list of some of the benefits of being single during the holiday season!

Benefit #1: No Stressing Over Finding The Perfect Gift

This is one of the best benefits about being single during the holidays. You do not have to shop around looking for the perfect gift for a significant other. This saves tons of time and money for other things…

Benefit #2: Buy Yourself An Awesome Gift Instead!

Thanks to the first benefit of being single during the holidays, you will most likely be able to buy yourself a little gift! I love doing this because you can get exactly what you want without feeling selfish about it.

Benefit #3: You Can Decorate However You’d Like

Bring out the pearls and the pink ornaments because there is no one to tell you it is a little too much. I love going overboard with the Christmas decor so this benefit is great for me! And on the contrary, if you aren’t a big decorator, feel free to leave your house nice and clean without all the extra stuff around.

Benefit #4: No Splitting Up Holidays

This is a great benefit for being single during the holidays. I hate leaving my home during the frigid winter days that Northern Virginia can bring. Much less surviving the holiday traffic going home to home.  Nothing is better than staying snuggled up in the blankets for the entire season!

Benefit #5: No Awkward Meeting Of Families

This one is directly related to Benefit #4! Avoiding small talk with near-strangers is great for those who are socially awkward or just don’t want to be on their absolute best behavior in an attempt to make a good impression.

Benefit #6: You Can Work Without The Guilt

A girl has to hustle. With no one there to make you feel guilty, feel free to work throughout the entire season. Many retailers and offices actually pay a little extra to those who continues to work throughout the holidays.

Benefit #7: You Can Watch “Chick Flicks” Without Any Complaints

Who doesn’t like a good romantic comedy during the colder months of the year? I sure do! I love this benefit because I love to make a big cup of hot cocoa and cuddle up with my pooch while watching some of my favorite movies like Love Actually, The Holiday, and Bridesmaids. Okay, Bridesmaids isn’t exactly a “holiday themed” chick flick, but it is so good, it should be enjoyed year round!

Benefit #8: Host A Single’s Party!

If you are super social during the holidays, think about throwing your own singles’ party. This way, you don’t have to wait for an invite that will most likely have couples all over the place. Plus, you can make the party exactly how you would like it to be!

Benefit #9: Kiss Whomever You’d Like

Whether you’re under the mistletoe or on New Year’s Eve, you don’t have to worry who is next to you to go in for a good kiss! Just another benefit of being single during the holidays.

Benefit #10: Perfect Time Of Year To Find A New Love

Finding love in the winter months is the perfect backdrop for any romantic story. Enjoy your single holiday season, because who knows, maybe you will usher in the Spring with a new beau on your arm!

Being single is not a bad thing to be during the holidays. Some might even say that it is a blessing! Whatever your relationship status may be, enjoy the holiday season. See you next year!

    LOL I love this. I would love to be able to decorate how ever I wanted :)

  • No splitting up the holidays is a definite blessing! I like the decorate how you want too. :)

  • deanna

    I am not single but love your reasons, they are too funny! The pink tree is great!

  • Those are all true and enjoyable as well. Although, it’s really nice to have someone to share all those things with.

  • Michelle

    Those are some great points you have there. I love the pink christmas tree too. I remember being single and how great it was to buy myself gifts.

  • Buying gifts for boyfriends (or even worse their parents) seriously sucks the fun out of Christmas a bit. I mean, I love my boyfriend but would it kill him to make a list of things he likes?

  • CouponDivaAndi

    as a 50-plus single, I’m doing all of that (except for the last two) :D

  • Ourfamilyworld

    Yup! These are the many benefits of being single and I’m sure I will be doing these things if I am.

  • Jacqui Odell

    I think there is benefits to being single and benefits to having a family. Either way has advantages it’s just what you want more.

  • Chester Field

    Sounds more like an article trying to convince Feminists that they’re happy with their toxic selves.
