Tis the season for the holidays.

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years.

What makes these days so special other than they are recognized by organizations as a day off from work. Businesses close down for these days, but not as much as years ago. Some places stay open or even open early to get more sales.

So we call these "special" days as holidays. And for what?

Families travels to group together. To bring massive amounts of food and gather around the video tube. They laugh and share stories. They bond. This is what holidays are about.

But suppose you don't have a family?

How do you "celebrate" a holiday?

A single person cooking turkey for Thanksgiving? Wrapping presents for Christmas? Opening Champagne for New Years? All by themselves?

So are holidays only for families?

What will you do this "holiday season"?
