Cancer and the Holidays:
Keeping It Simple, Keeping It Real
 
Ready or not, the holidays--Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Years--are just around the corner. Even the healthiest people can feel overwhelmed or overstimulated by the frantic pace, unrealistically high expectations, and the sensory overload of holiday music, advertisements, food and drink, decorations and displays, and social obligations. 
 
People affected by cancer experience the holidays differently. Some glide through the season with ease and a feeling of joy; for others it a hard slog to be endured. One of the most common reactions is ambivalence.
