See your friends
The great thing about Christmas is that everyone you've ever known all seems to come together. Take advantage of having all your friends available and plan festive activities like ice-skating, theatre trips or a girls night in with homemade cocktails.
With everyone in the Christmas spirit, now is the perfect time to throw a festive themed party. Invite your friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances to come together and play Christmas tunes, eat some mince pies, drink mulled wine, and play party games.
"My friends are all coupled up", says Shellie Homes, 30, "so I don't see as much of them as I'd like.
"But at Christmas we always have a Boxing Day bash. We all go to someone's house and play party games, drink cocktails and it usually ends in happy chaos or with Sing Star. It's my favourite time of year."
This is a great way to be surrounded with company and meet new people too. Don't forget to hang the mistletoe somewhere strategic if single men are invited...
