It’s the holiday season. “Happy Holiday” from “The Andy Williams Christmas Album” is playing in the back of my mind while I write this article.

Late this month, the Salvation Army’s bells will be ringing and Thanksgiving will be a distant memory when we turn our calendar pages to Dec. 1. The hustle and bustle of planning family get-togethers, preparing holiday meals, decorating, shopping as we prepare to celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and finally the New Year. And, all of this is happening in the midst of our already busy and stressful lives.
