“The Christmas spirit is in the air”, a saying that is on the tips of our tongues the second the sound of sleigh bells jingle and the scent of gingerbread tickles our noses. For most, it fills us with a feeling of warmth and comfort; for others, it can warrant the feeling of loneliness and melancholy. Since the holidays are celebrated and felt in many ways, recognizing how it might affect others is the first step in truly giving back. So, as the year comes to an end and a new one begins people look back at who they were and look forward to who they want to be, and in the true spirit of giving back, helping them down their path of self-discovery could be the best gift of all.
