Do many singles bother with them? For some who are alone, it's the season for reflection, a reason to get plastered, one of regret, to perhaps commit suicide.

I am happy you posted here. Holidays are very hard on many people. Being alone is something you have to work at. Go out to any gathering with a sign saying you are alone and need help. There will be people who will help. Don't be imbarrassed to do it, help yourself.

The example of you using "X-mas" reflects why you are feeling that way.

Xmas is a common abbreviation of the word Christmas. It is sometimes pronounced /&#712;&#603;ksm&# 601;s/, but it, and variants such as Xtemass, originated as handwriting abbreviations for the typical pronunciation /&#712;kr&#618;sm& #601;s/. The "-mas" part is from the Latin-derived Old English word for Mass,[1] while the "X" comes from the Greek letter Chi, which is the first letter of the Greek word &#935;&#961;&#953; &#963;&#964;&#972; &#962;, translated as "Christ".[2]

I myself , think it is the absence of Christ, and think along those lines.

There is a common misconception that the word Xmas is a secular attempt to remove the religious tradition from Christmas[3] by taking the "Christ" out of "Christmas".
