Neighborhoods decorated with bright lights, snowmen, and reindeer which can trigger feelings of joy, pleasant memories, and bring about the spirit of Christmas. For others, those same items could bring feelings of sadness, depression, or thoughts of loved ones that have passed on.
About ten minutes before I left the office today, I heard a loud crash. I ran outside and saw a car had crashed into a truck of an elderly couple. The vehicle was hit hard enough that the airbags deployed. It didn't appear anyone was severely injured. Being in a car accident sucks any time of the year but right before the holidays make it especially sad. I wondered how this would affect both parties holidays.
