Not everyone enjoys the holidays. Perhaps they are lonely, depressed, recently lost a loved one, or just aren't at a great place in their life. All the pressure to be merry can get to anyone. Several organizations are offering people to come together and enjoy community without the frantic need to be "holly and jolly".
