My favorite part of the holidays is when I have to reiterate the fact that I am single to every member of my extended family at both Thanksgiving AND Christmas :-)

Single during the holidays date idea: get a bottle of wine, call an uber, have it drive you around to look at lights. Bonus: ask for aux and play Mariah Carey Christmas album.

"No, no boyfriend. Just family!"
"Hmm. Well with better cuticles you could have boyfriend."
