Not everyone shares the view that this time of year is marvelous. Some find themselves alone without family or friends. This can make it a depressing time.
According to The Canadian Mental Health Association this is indeed the most depressing time of year for somOne people. It is not however a time when the suicide rate is any higher. What the Christmas seasons brings on is a need to have family and friends nearby.
On my end, family is so very much appreciated. It's good to know that no matter the season, I'm never alone.
