Managing Holiday Blues

It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!  Really? Surely you’ve heard that lyric. It’s the title of the ever popular Christmas song Andy Williams first recorded in 1963. Since then, many notable crooners have regaled us with their renditions–Johnny Mathis, Harry Connick Jr., Patti LaBelle, Garth Brooks, and the Pentatonix–celebrating many of the activities associated with the Winter Holiday Season: “…parties for hosting…marshmallows for toasting…caroling out in the snow…gay happy meetings…holiday greetings…friends coming to call…” If your spirit soars as Thanksgiving nears and you remain high on the holidays through New Year’s, good for you.  Enjoy yourself to the max! You deserve it. We all do. But for too many.
