Feeling lonely during the holidays?? Kelly Clarkson knows exactly how you’re feeling and I can totally relate.
When we talk about the holidays we talk about joy and presents and all the happy things, but the holidays can be really hard for a lot of people and Clarkson is here to bring her realness. (Which is also why we love her.)
During her new NBC special, Kelly Clarkson Presents: When Christmas Comes Around, which aired earlier this week on Dec. 1, she said of the track "Merry Christmas (to the One I Used to Know)": “I’m gonna be real with y'all, when I wrote this next song, I was crying my face off, which happens even at Christmastime. ... I wrote this song for me, but also because there aren’t many holiday songs for people feeling alone or lost or just plain sad.."
And it got me thinking about last Christmas, which wasn’t so happy for me. I was going thru a break-up, my family had covid, so I had to do things to make myself happy, which involved Facetime Christmas caroling etc. with friends.
Do you guys have anything you do if you are ever sad around the holidays? Just want you to know you're not alone!
