  • I have been when I lost my Grandfather, and it was hard because we always went over there. So I would suggest you don't give up on all meeting for the Holidays. It has not been the same for a long time in my family, and I know that's because my Grandpa is gone. It has been 11 years now. I still wish thing's were like when he was here, but they are not the same :( Now everyone kinda does their own thing & it is sad. My Grandma is still here, and we should still do what we have always sorry about your loss.

  • That's so hard, I'm sorry. What if you start your own tradition this year and Have Christmas at home? Maybe invite some people from your community who don't have anyone to spend the holidays with?

  • Doing it this year too. I am actually working Christmas Eve. I also go to friend's sometime during this time and we have a small gathering. Sending you hugs, it is a hard time here.

  • First, I am so sorry. I am not exactly in the same boat, but sorta. I moved out of state, and just have my in-law's to share the holiday's with. My dad passed away a yr ago, and I can't call him on Christmas. It is hard the first couple of years, it never gets easy, it just gets easier with time. If that makes any sense. I would say the best thing to do is occupy your time as much as you can, just to avoid dwelling on what you can't change. My heart goes out to you.
    This too shall pass.
