Grieving Through the Holidays

Holidays are often a time of emotional ups and downs, especially for those who
are grieving. During the holiday season we grieve not only for our loved one who
died, but also for the special moments of our life with them, including holiday celebrations.
On top of this, the expectation to feel joyful during the holiday season
can increase our distress or lead to feeling isolated from our friends and family.
