Elvis Presley made a song called "Blue Christmas" and he was lamenting about the sorrow of being apart during the special holiday.
I think we all experience a bit of the "blues" during the week following Christmas. There isn't much going on until New Year's Eve and we are mostly EXHAUSTED! As usual, most of us overdid it at Christmas, whether eating, drinking, spending or just trying to keep up with all the kids. Kids experience a "down" period after Christmas too. They quickly learn that the actual experience rarely lives up to the anticipation.
So take it really easy in the days following Christmas. Remember that it is normal to feel the "let down" and it's very important to use the time for recuperation.
