    If you live in Utah, are over 30 and still not married you might as well be invisible.

    Maybe also wonder about all the divorced and/or still unmarried people over 18 who live far from their families and have no one to spend Christmas with. I know we are the real “black mark” on the LDS community, hence I moved out of state even farther away from the few family members I have to get away from the stigma attached to being in your late 30s divorced and never remarried. I’ve never been a huge fan of Christmas, but I definitely won’t be celebrating this year.

    Christmas time is bitter sweet I agree with Ms Collins. For all the parties and buying gifts and fun family time I can't help feeling and sometime seeing the lonliness and pain of this season. I have a recently divorced family member and my joy is dampened seeing her pain. I see people on busses who I know are struggling especially in this icy cold dark time of year and money is tight for them. I try to help what little I can. I wish Christmas could be much more Christ focused and less commercial. That would help so many people I think. I know many people whom are relieved to see normal life return in March or April...warm weather and sunlight and less hustle bussel.
