Holiday Season Planner

This first Holiday Season after you have experienced a death in your family can be very difficult.  Some family traditions may be important to follow , while you may feel others might be better if changed.

While planning the holidays, we often need help to decide what to do ourselves and what to delegate to others, what traditions to keep and what traditions to change. For people who work best with visuals, we offer a Holiday Planner worksheet:
