Our expert says:
I think far more people feel bad, for various good reasons, during the Festive Season, than mos people realise. Sometimes one just doesn't have any Yo-Ho-Ho left, and everyone else making a fuss about their happiness ( real or simulated ) can make one feel worse, by contrast.
Purple is right about the value of keeping busy and not spending empty time feeling bad - catch up on chores, go out for a nice Christmas meal, get in a stack of DVD ( as TV often contains too many lousy programs full of YoHoHo ) and books. And work will be helpful.
And, as I do, try not to think only of who you have lost in terms of not having their physical presence, but remember them fondly for all the good reasons you still love them and for which they still live in your heart.
