When the Holidays Aren’t Happy

For many people, the holiday season is meaningful, merry, and oh so bright—with the cheery decorations found on every street corner, enticing the hustle and bustle for the most festive time of year. The constant holiday songs, parties, and endless festivities draw a surprise when considering that the holidays aren’t always happy. The truth is, not everyone finds the holiday spirit and experiences its ethereal magic. For some, the holiday season is full of monotony, dread, and stress.
