don't really know...I just hunker down and as I also am without family ties, I generally end up working for colleagues with kids (I work in a nursing facility so we have to have staff on deck every day of the year), and/or pitching in to help "babysit" our animal rescue shelter so some folks can go visit family. Last year, a bunch of us got together to take a van from the nursing home (with permission!), collect up the local Meals on Wheels recipients, and bring them to a community room that the local church let us use to give them Christmas dinner and presents. Meals on Wheels doesn't run on holidays, so these poor souls, if they truly have no one, may be left alone and hungry on Christmas! I made vegan dishes, of course, my co-workers didn't quite go the vegan route, but hey - 99-year-old Miss Mabel got a hot dinner and a lap quilt, so it's all good!

If you are looking to travel, I don't know of vegan events specifically, but quite possibly, you might be able to volunteer at Farm Sanctuary, or out at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Utah. I know Best Friends loves to have people stay and volunteer for a few days or a week, and I would bet Christmas they might have fewer people around and could use the help.
