Psychologists call it SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder. So now there’s an “official” term for being depressed around the holidays. For most people suffering this “disorder” the holidays remind them of how lonely they are. Holidays are for spending time and exchanging gifts with loved ones, and if you have no loved ones, well, I can understand why you’d be depressed.

But I have loved ones. Then why do the holidays sometimes depress me?

Maybe because I’m reminded that I didn’t always have it so good. And so I know how SAD people feel – only without the hopelessness, because I’m cured.
