Childfree Holidays

It’s the busy time of the year for families, while many of us who are not parents have too much time on our hands. This is especially true for childfree adults who live far from family. I’ve coped with the abundance of free time in a variety of ways through the years, including baking for colleagues, reading, enjoying time in coffee shops, and going skiing. It’s a time when even those of us who feel good about our childfree status can have some twangs of pain, thinking what it must be like to enjoy a small child during the Christmas season. How have you coped?
