Is this time of year difficult for anyone else?

Growing up we split the Holidays: visit dad's parents for late morning and lunch and mum's sister for the afternoon. On dad's side I was the only grandchild in our home country so I had the doted on experience as well as the one of the crowd experience with my many cousins on mum's side.

My grandparents have passed on and my aunt and her family moved to Canada. Most of my other cousins are scattered all over the world and I'm not close to the few who remained in our home country. I haven't gone the married and kids path so, while we see friends during the season, it's just us for the day itself. My parents both grew up with big family holidays and I feel like I've cheated them somehow.
