Default Holiday suicide rise a myth

Itís a long-believed urban myth that suicides increase during the Christmas season. But local and national experts say that isnít true. While winter and the holiday season can cause seasonal affective disorder and the blues, few people kill themselves in December. In fact, the number of suicides declines.
