The Holidays -- Welcome, or Not So Much?
This month starts the official beginning of "the holidays." The crazy time of year when people shop endlessly for gifts, spend money they don't have, endure crowds and long lines, reflect on everything that's wrong with their family, and feel intense pressure to put on a fake smile and pretend they're happy.
Or it's a time when people relish in holiday cheer, spread joy around to their loved ones, and savor personal connections. The seasons can go either way. Or both.
What's your attitude toward the holidays? Do you welcome this time of year? Or dread it?
