When we speak of joy at Christmas time, it means different things to different people. Christmas brings glee, nostalgia, and excitement into the hearts of some who would describe this experience as joy. For many others, joy feels hard to reach as the Christmas season triggers reminders of loved ones lost, difficulties meeting obligations, or deep personal feelings of isolation and loneliness. For everyone, there is a light in the darkness and the darkness will not overcome it.
