A common misconception, or to use its more common name – mainstream news, is that the suicide rate increases during the December holiday month. In fact, studies show that the suicide rate is depressed (no pun intended) during December. The most popular time for people to bring themselves closer to their God, is Spring and Summer.
In the United States, suicides outnumber homicides by approximately a 5-3 ratio, supporting the notion that internalizing ones anger may be harmful to health.
Happy holidays, everyone!
