Ooo .. single or not, if I ever tried to go anywhere away from the Family for Christmas I would have been disowned and family members would never speak to me again.
New Year's however I have been to Montreal, Quebec, Canada a couple times, that's always a good time. It's kinda like New York, but cleaner and more people speak English.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
