I think its you. There is a lot of despair at this time of the year, lots of sorrow, lots of lost souls. We need to remember to pray for those who have lost someone or are having a rough time financially. Christmas brings a lot of stress.

It may be that we are connecting with each other more which often lifts spirits. And there is the magic of the season, fun foods and gatherings, etc. But it is statistically a time when rates for depression climb.
