Sometimes at the holidays, those in grief feel torn about whether to follow the traditions they held or start new ones. Inviting them to attend and participate in events you are attending could be helpful in giving an option. Also, they won’t be going to a holiday event alone which can be extremely especially after a loss. If they decline or cancel at the last minute, do not take it personally. They are doing the best they can during a really tough time.
Please remember this is one suggestion for how to help support those in grief for the holidays. Please feel free to review more of our tips here in our Blog section. And, always remember, you don’t have to journey alone…even as a supporter!
