Alone for the Holidays?  Don’t Let It Get You Down!

The stretch from Thanksgiving to New Year’s can be stressful for anyone, whether you are surrounded by people or if you are by yourself.  Family vacation schedules, long-distance travel, finances and lingering tensions from recent separations can make get-togethers difficult.  The result may be spending time alone during this time of the year.
