I work the night shift as a mental health worker at a drug detox facility here in Vancouver. I'm working nights on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day this year. A few days ago a young (18 year old) kid came in who I came to learn was a big comic fan. So as an early Christmas present I donated all my unwanted comics to the facility so we now have a bit of a comic library. I wasn't reading them and probably never would again so I thought it would be a great thing to brighten his Christmas while he goes through a really tough patch. Detoxing from heroin is no fun!
Just a reminder that no matter how much you might hate travelling during the holidays to go see family you don't really like, it could always be worse and we should all cherish the time we have with our loved ones while they are here.
I wish you all the best during the holidays
