5 Ideas For Creating New Holiday Traditions After Death
Traditional holidays are always a period of fun, food, and enjoyment for the family and friends but not when you have lost a loved one. Yet it is natural to go through the holiday ritual to maintain the tradition and keep up the spirit behind it.
Holiday traditions evolve and a new tradition can be added after the death of a family member to memorialize the departed. Here are five ideas to set a new holiday tradition in the memory of the loved one:
1. Favorite Deserts
No holiday dinner is complete without delicious deserts. Let the dessert menu include the most favorite dish of the loved one or the one he or she took pride in cooking and serving at the dinner.
2. A Musical Tribute To Touch The Heart
Playing songs after the holiday dinner that your loved one played often and enjoyed is a nice way to feel the presence of the departed and is soothing too. Music never dies and so the memories associated with it.
3. Supporting A Person In Need Of A Holiday
Set a new tradition by inviting someone you know, who has lost a loved one and has no one to spend the holiday with.
4. Give Gifts To Poor Children
If the person loved children, giving gifts to destitute kids would be a silent way to celebrate their memory year after year. They too will remember him with gratitude.
5. A Remembrance Tree
If you buy a remembrance tree and keep adding some new ornament every year in memory of the loved one, it is a beautiful way to memorialize.
It is important to be creative in new holiday traditions to sustain the memory of the person for many more years. New traditions, however simple sustain if they include family and friends who will carry them forward. If you want more information on cremation, get in touch with us at CremationCare Centre.
