The start of the holiday season prompts us to be grateful and reflect on the meaning of celebrations, traditions, and life. Regardless of which holidays you observe, the season also comes with an abundance of tasks and expectations. Few of us have escaped unscathed from the challenges that we’ve lived over the past year. Many of us have lost loved ones, faced personal health difficulties, or struggled through relationship issues. All these hardships may be making it hard to grapple with the cheerfulness of the season.
