The holidays are a magical time for engaged couples
You and your fiancé will be the center of attention. You’ll receive gifts, toasts, and good wishes. You’ll have parties thrown for you. You’ll be asked all about your wedding. You’ll feel more in love with your fiancé than you have since he popped the question.
Even better yet: you’ll find yourselves envisioning holidays in years to come, imagining new traditions you’ll start and the children that you’ll share them with.
Don't be surprised, though, by "blue" Christmas moments
They may occur:
As you go to sleep in your girlhood bed, it hits you that this is the last Christmas in this bed. Next year, you’ll be with your husband, in the guest room.
As you’re driving out of your family’s driveway, heading to his family’s house. You’ve never left your family on a holiday before. It just hurts.
In other words, the blues may hit when something happens that really connects you to the feeling that this is “the end of an era” in your life. Because this is – it’s your last holiday season unmarried. And any change -- no matter how positive -- is hard.
