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