Yes and no.
I have spent NYE, New Year's Day, and Easter alone. I never really minded.
When my younger sister studied in London for a year in college, my parents told me they were going to visit her for Christmas but wouldn't be paying for me (I was still in college, too), but I could go if I could pay for it. My grandparents, who always host Christmas Eve, didn't want me to come because it "would be too uncomfortable having me there and not the rest of the family". So, I had planned on being alone. My dad's mom ended up paying for my flight and hotel because she thought what my parents were doing was horrible (and I agree, it was!).
Now, all holidays are celebrated with DH and my 3 DC. My parents and sister are cut-off. My grandparents won't invite us because my not dealing with my toxic parents/sister is too much stress for them (we wouldn't go, anyways, as we live 1500 miles away). We are never invited to his side of the family-they celebrate with DH's BIL's family and MIL and FIL just invite themselves over, which is fine because BIL's side of the family isn't "our" family. But, MIL and FIL won't come and spend the holidays with us because "they've always done it this way". While I'm not particularly fond of my IL's, they're response does hurt. MIL/FIL hosted holidays when their kiddos were young, because they didn't think they should have to travel. When SIL had her children, she started hosting for the same reason. But, that's not a good enough reason for us to be able to host. The kiddos know no difference, though. And we have been making great memories. I just pray, since my kiddos aren't growing up having their extended family around during the holidays, that they will invite us to their holiday celebrations!
(Man, now I'm crying. Sometimes I just feel so unloved! But, like I said, my children don't know any difference.)
