You're alone, on a budget and always seem to be too busy...and you couldn't be happier.

There's often a pitying tone attached to people who are not in relationships during the holidays, but we say, why not enjoy all the free time (and food) that's about to come your way? While this time of the year can make some of us feel lonely or upset, having time for yourself is so much better — and let's be real, nobody wants to drag themselves out on a cold night to their partner's friend's party anyways.

Here are 10 reasons why being single during the holidays is the best time of the year. Did we miss any? Let us know in the comments below.
