I'm a law student, so the holidays are challenging and depressing for reasons other than those mentioned by your other commenters. The holiday season is law school final exam season, so my classmates and I are unable to partake in the holiday celebrations from around Thanksgiving time until almost Christmas eve because we have to focus on studying for final exams. It it challenging and relatively depressing to do nothing but sit and study for 12-14 hours each day for 4-5 weeks straight while the rest of the world is joyfully gearing up for Christmas. For the past three years, I feel as though I've almost entirely missed out on the holiday season, which saddens me, but I'm thankful for the opportunity to further my education, and it's just something that comes with the territory.
