Default How do you cope with Christmas meetings and social duties?

Donít hesitate to offer your advises for surviving here but you can also vent all you need.

For me Christmas meetings and duties have been a real torture for a long time.
If I already see hard to socialise when Iím not forced to, this festivities are chilling. The fact that things get out of the rule, you donít know what will go on, having to cope with all people even the ones you donít get along with or you donít know or even you see as a threaten.
Or letís forget when you are sat next to that other shy person and you are mind get petrified without knowing what to talk about with that person you share a couple of words as much at work or university o wherever.

Luckily, I donít have this urge for socialising as I used to have anymore. You know when someone is old enough, (s)he doesnít have to try so badly to seem another ďnormalĒ person.

Well... I don't have any extended family. And I don't do Christmas either (or any other holiday for that matter.) So I personally don't have any concerns related to the holidays. However for anyone who does here's a link to an article, from PsychCentral's archives, that provides additional links to a host of articles on the subject of coping with the holidays:

Thank you for your help and suggestions, as always. :-)
Itís funny that on another side the most beautiful and magic moment I ever lived, happened exactly in a family celebration at Christmas so. But I was only a kid.
