For most of us, the holidays are a time of joy and celebration, stretching from Thanksgiving through Christmas and into the new year.

But for some, it can be the most difficult time of year. We may feel the keen absence of a loved one, the anxiety of measuring up, the pressure of trying to please those we love with gifts we cannot afford. We're constantly bombarded with images of perfect families and happy faces exchanging perfect gifts. All of this can lead to holiday depression.
