The holidays are a great family time, but also a very poignant reminder if a family member has passed away during the year. Move toward healing this Christmas with suggestions and traditions that honor your loved one and also bring joy back into the season. The Empty Chair: Handling Grief on Holidays and Special Occasions () by Susan J. Zonnebelt-Smeenge R.N., Ed.D., Robert C.   This does not mean that all of your grieving takes place during that short time every day; however, it does help to create a time and sacred place to be alone with your grief." — maudebasset 3.

Grieving the death of someone loved is always hard, but during the holiday season it can seem overwhelming. Is it possible to mourn and celebrate at the same time? Topics covered include honoring your thoughts and feelings, giving yourself permission to mourn, deciding what is important and what isn’t, creating new traditions, finding ways to.   What else might help grieving people survive the holidays? Grief can be a reason to start new holiday traditions. Many people feel like the way they’ve always done holidays is written in stone. I think it’s great for you to come alongside grieving people and suggest that maybe they don’t have to do things the way they have always done them.

Helping a grieving person tip 1: Understand the grieving process. The better your understanding of grief and how it is healed, the better equipped you’ll be to help a bereaved friend or family member. There is no right or wrong way to grieve. Grief does not always unfold in orderly, predictable stages. The holiday season is anything but happy to many bereaved families. The expectations that we should be jolly just seem to add to our already full emotional plates. While we cannot fast forward through holidays, there are things that can be done to help us get through those challenging times of the year.
