DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?
This is the title of one of my favorite and well-known Christmas carols, but

TIMES HAVE CHANGED
The high occurrence of divorce and single-parent households nowadays is having a huge impact on how zillions fare the challenge of with how to deal with the holidays.

As in our case, this is especially true if there are many miles separating them from their families.
