Dealing with the Holidays: Suggested Resources, 2022

[Updated December 31, 2022]

The holiest of holidays are those we keep alone in silence and in solitude; Secret Anniversary of the Heart. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The holiday season is upon us once again, and for those of us anticipating or coping with the loss of a loved one, the days ahead can be extremely difficult. triggers are everywhere, reminiscing and reminding us of all that we have lost. This is why many community agencies offer programs specifically at this time of year to assist the bereaved. Your local hospice, mortuary or healthcare organization will have information about any special offers and services available to you in your community. Plus, the Internet is filled with all kinds of articles, books, and tips that offer creative and practical ways to approach the holidays.

As I have done in years past, over the next several weeks I will be looking online for articles, webinars, and other reliable resources to recommend to my readers and visitors, and every day during the holiday season I’ll be posting links to them here. Since I’m building on this list on a daily basis, I invite you to check back frequently to see what’s been added.
