Easter 1

Loss and the Holidays is my gift to you over the coming holidays. I'll look at a variety of civic, religious, and personal holidays observed throughout the United States and other parts of our planet. We live in a multi-cultural, inter-cultural world, rich in diversity, but sometimes we don't know much about the holidays that are important to our neighbors, coworkers, and friends.

Holidays provide a group of people with ways to connect to their core values and the people who are important to them. However, they can be particularly difficult for those who are separated from a loved one either because of distance, difficulties, or death. 

You can be a great source of comfort and consolation when you know even a little bit about someone's important holidays and the challenges they face because of their loss.
