Don't be lonely for the Holidays! Only you can make a difference for yourself. Don't wait for someone to come to you, you go to them.
And forget about "Santa" if gifts are a sign of the Christmas spirit, it's about being with people who care, wether from work or your social group. And since you ride, I know you know at least one other person who rides. So why not ask them to join you for some "Cheer"?
Make it an occassion of fellowship and friendship, that's what Christmas is all about.
But if you're an atheist, consider the occassion an opportunity for your good character and kind temperament to show itself with your collegues. Congeniality is not a religious requirement, but part of the social human structure.
In addition, this is the time of year where you can give a lady a gift just because and she would be touched and impressed at your kindness. If nothing else, take advantage of the good feelings the Holidays bring out in people!
