It is possible that the journey to the saddest day of the year begins before Christmas, at a time of great discounts, when many of us are overwhelmed by an uncontrollable desire to buy a sense of happiness. the most precious and longest gift.If the song inspires me to call someone I haven’t met in a long time to give undivided attention and time to loved ones, I’ll be really happy, ”says Linda Leen.
