When a loved one passes away, it can change several things in your life. It alters your thinking process and also makes you look at life differently. During holiday time, dealing with the various emotions that you feel can be very challenging.

If you have recently lost a loved one, you may feel that certain traditions that were part and parcel of your life when he or she was alive, are not meaningful any longer. However, that isn't the case. One of the best ways to cherish the memories of that person and honor them is to continue with some of the Christmas traditions, while you create new ones as well.

It is essential to be positive in your outlook so that you can start the New Year in a better way. The new traditions that you create can be woven around things that you did with your loved one, and it will help you keep the memory of your family member alive.

Some Things To Do

  • You can involve yourself in some charitable work or community service. It gives you some satisfaction that you have made a small difference in somebody else's life.
     
  • If your loved one liked to cook, you could include those items in meals during Christmas time. You and your family members can remember about that person and think about the good times that you spent together. 
     
  • If you have any older family members that you would like to visit, this is the time to do it. It can bring them some joy and satisfaction that someone cares for them and has come to meet them.
     
  • There is no specific rule on how you should spend the holidays or make new traditions, but these are just some of the things you can do.
