My two older children weren't here for Christmas. It's a tough gig but it is not insurmountable if you are willing to be flexible.
Easter is a floating holiday as is Thanksgiving. We declared Christmas the same, so we had no celebration until the 27th.
I went to the grocery on the 25th, sort of oblivious to the fact that it was Christmas day. When I got home, I looked at my vape that was sitting between the seats and thought, "I'm done with that now."
And there it has sat for a week. I've had zero impulse to go get it.
