Planning for the Holidays




It’s the holiday season, a magical time of year filled with twinkling lights, smells of home-baked goodies, sounds of caroling, laughter and the voice of the ones you love.

Then there are some of us, even as we’re surrounded by such loveliness, who have a hard time seeing and feeling the holiday spirit. We’ve lost someone near and dear to us and are still grappling with how to live this new life without them. Especially during the holidays.

Do we skip the holidays? Do we carry on traditions, or start new ones? What exactly do we do with these holidays?

What’s your grief, a website dedicated to grief, offers many resources and tips on how to plan ahead, remember your loved ones, or skip the holidays.  Whether you stick around or plan a vacation in a destination far, far away; create a new tradition or continue the same traditions – whatever you choose to do this holiday season, and for seasons to come, remember it is right for you, right now and in this moment.

If you need someone to talk to, or would like local resources on grief and counseling, please call our Coordinator of Support Services at 843-525-6257.
