For some, it's a time of loneliness. For others and those with mental health issues, the business of everywhere can create a hostile mind set for them. I, myself am included in this.
I just urge everyone to take note of whats around you. If you see someone struggling, help them. Even a simple "are you okay" can make all the difference.
The thing is though, we understand, as a society, science. I'm not going to degrade anyone's particular beliefs as this isn't fair either however, the important thing, is science. Science will tell you that constant reminders of Christmas can be particularly hard for those with mental health issues or those who lost a loved one around the season.
I don't want to take the fun out of the season however, there should be public "Christmas Safe Zones" where people are not reminded of the trauma that exists around this season.
Hope everyone understands and has a good season and a prosperous new year.
