Remembering And Honoring A Loved One Through Holiday Meals
During the holiday season, families get together and spend happy moments with each other. While this is normal for most families, those who are grieving may find it very difficult to deal with all of these traditions. The holiday season can be particularly painful when you lose a loved one. At such a time, there are many different ways that you can remember and honor your loved one:
- Doing this through holiday meals is a great way to keep that person's memory alive and maintain a positive outlook despite the sorrow you are feeling. Take the time and effort to prepare your loved one's favorite meal. For example, if they liked a specific Christmas pie or even baked it for the family, you can bake a similar pie during the holidays. You can share memories about that person, with everyone present at the dinner table and it is the right way of honoring them
- You can also raise a toast to a loved one that has passed away. Do this before your holiday meal, and you can also ask others at the table to say a few words to honor the memory of the decedent.
- The holidays are a time for happiness and cheer. However, many people do not have the means to enjoy the holidays as you would. You can always distribute holiday meals to the less fortunate in the memory of your loved one. When you make a positive impact on someone's life, it also brings a certain amount of joy and peace to yours.
