With the holidays just around the corner, people are already busy planning amazing family gatherings. No matter what holiday you celebrate, having the opportunity to catch up with the people you care about is such a gift. Unfortunately, thousands of people around the world are alone when these wonderful holidays roll around — especially the elderly. While we spend time with our loved ones, they sit alone in their homes, waiting for the season to pass.
John Lewis — a popular department store chain in the U.K. — is known for creating amazing short films for Christmas, and this year, they tackled the heartbreak that comes along with spending the holidays alone.
Whether you’re related to someone or not, do your best to share some love and joy this holiday season. You never know how much one small gesture could mean to someone in need.
