Festive parties, family gatherings, gift shopping and time-honored recipes are what most people associate with the holiday season. However, for some, the winter is far from being the most wonderful time of the year. Coined the “holiday blues,” this condition should not be taken lightly.

Many people experience varying levels of anxiety or depression during the holiday season, especially the elderly, who may think about how quickly time has passed or miss loved ones more during this time of year. Whether it’s the extra stresses and unrealistic expectations that accompany the season or the feelings of loneliness and sadness, the holiday blues can be hard to shake.
