Holiday depression, both fact and fiction.

Abstract

In the whirl of the holiday season, the maintenance of normal mood is no mean task. Demoralization and despair are no paradox, no mystery, no fashionable topic. Nevertheless, they are also not depression, not a disorder, not a disease, but a predictable, genuine human reaction to an annual social ritual.
