Many people successfully make it through Thanksgiving and Christmas, even though they hide their depression. Normally, half of the people in the world did not go to a Thanksgiving Dinner nor will they visit their family for Christmas due to their holiday depression. The Lord wants you to enjoy your time whenever you feel happy or sad, He does not want you to continue your depression. You see that depression is only a temporary time. Let’s join in prayer here to overcome holiday depression!
