“I’ve spent many holidays alone and this is what I always do. I like to cook so I still cook a holiday meal, but if you’re not into cooking then maybe splurge on a restaurant you wouldn’t normally go to alone. It’s all take out now anyway. Decorate your house, if that’s your thing. Or go for a quiet walk around the city, a hike, a bike ride, whatever it is you like to do. Or go to a store and buy something like a Lego set, a puzzle, a craft kit, etc and while away the hours that way” – saladada / Reddit
You don’t need to spend a lot. The point is to make the day feel special in a way that speaks to you and gives you happiness.
