I wasn't too keen on going out of my way to celebrate Christmas for the obvious reason but I don't see any reason to go out of my way to avoid it either.
I might turn into a sobbing mess, but it'll be cathartic.
I've spent this year just getting through it. Not bad so far if I do say so myself. A trip to Kyoto in January will mark one year. I may or may not write about it. I'll definitely post pictures and sketches though.
