There is something about the holidays that creates great psychological pressure on people. In part it is the unrealistic expectations of the celebrations. In part it is the long hours of darkness around the winter solstice (betraying my north of the equator bias).
This is a time when families often fall apart instead of coming together. This is the time of the year when organizations such as Covenant House are keeping their doors open for young adults who are in need of help. Originally they kept their door open as a temporary shelter. Today they have evolved in organization that can help kids get on their feet, finish their education and find a job — when there are jobs to be found.
