You're Jewish (and not of the [[InformedJudaism Informed]] sect). Or Muslim. Or atheist. Or TheGrinch. Or you're estranged from your family. Or you're a hungry Jehovah's Witness looking for a quick bite after the meeting. [[TropeCodifier Or a pack of dogs just ate the massive home-cooked dinner.]] Or you're just plain alone and bored. Whatever it is, the usual Christmas festivities are simply not possible for you. It's just another miserable winter's day, except that since you're off work, you have even less to do than usual.
