Grief expert David Kessler writes “Holidays are time spent with loved ones” was imprinted on our psyche from a young age. Holidays are special times made for the gathering of family and friends, celebrations of faith, and remembering those who have passed. It’s exciting to attend the parties, dress the part, chat and laugh with those closest to us. Rather we are celebrating the birth of our Lord at church services or attending other religious ceremonies, its easy…our tradition…to be expected. It makes you wonder where you purchase the “manual” for grieving through the Holidays. Although I’m sure Amazon has several options, the best opportunity comes from funeral homes that have spent all year guiding and helping families through their pain and grief. Planning Candlelight Remembrance Services allows families a pathway to include their loved ones during the happiest yet most difficult time of the year.
Hilton Funeral Supply is proud to support funeral professionals across the country. Funeral homes can help families navigate the holidays with thoughtful events like Candlelight Remembrance Services.
As Kessler goes on to advise those in grief, “Pretending you don’t hurt and or it is not a harder time of the year is just not the truth for you. If it wasn’t harder you probably wouldn’t be here. You can and will get through the holidays. Rather than avoiding the feelings of grief, lean into them. It is not the grief you want to avoid; it is the pain. Grief is the way out of the pain. There are a number of ways to incorporate your loved one and your loss into the holidays.”
