The Holiday Season - No matter what your method of celebrating it, it might be what we have come to know as Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hannukah.
Whatever your personal way of celebration one will have to agree that this time of year is not what it used to be. It seems as though it has become so commercially driven that the heart and soul of what was supposed to be a time of family and reflection has been switched out to becoming a carnal display of who can spend the most as well as who can GET the most material items.
In this sagging economy, it's a losing proposition for most who are suffering collectively under the factors that have swept the world's in epidemic proportions to only cause more stress to keep up with others, the loneliness that comes from being disconnected and the drained bank accounts that come from the loss of jobs, mismanagement of personal funds and out of control spending habits.
In other words, this is NOT a very happy time of year for most. Suicides, domestic violence, addictions, divorce rates and crime are expected to increase this year as always but in record numbers because of the intensified stresses felt across the land and many desperately want relief from. The masses are waking up to the facade and they want answers!
Tonight we aim to explore why the Holidays have become for many the worst time of the year and what could be done to stop the madness!
